Three more days to go with our 101010 Project and then I'll have the opportunity to share my answers to all our questions, including the one I'm hosting: "The Balance Question: What does it mean to you and how is it working for you?" Joining us today to share her answer is Alease McClenningham.
A little about Alease: As an expert, Alease lends knowledge to the press, editorials and serves as a subject-matter expert. She is a sought-after presenter in the areas of creative marketing, personal image, branding and fashion. As a professor, Alease is committed to her student’s education, furthering their exposure and considers their success a direct reflection of herself. As a mixed-media artist, Alease participated in several exhibitions. Wishing to market her artistic endeavors, she found little advice available. This, coupled with her passion for education – she tracked her online marketing & branding journey and founded The School of Creative Business. Some of Alease's current projects include: A 12 Week Sabbatical with video updates here; 101 Free Resources to Grow Your Creative Business here; Creative Entrepreneurs of the Month Interviews here; and Starting Points for Creative Entrepreneurs webinars here.
So, Alease, how do you handle balance? It means saying No to activities that don’t increase my bottom line. It has really worked out well to have a business coach. He makes me elevate every new activity at a money item on my balance sheet.
