In this episode, you’ll hear from writer, small business advisor, and artist Laura Holway, who provides Small Art Advising: business coaching for ambitious creative humans that value ease and sustainability as much as impact and growth. She helps creative people make plans and create work that aligns with what they need. We covered so many topics relating to creative work and personal evolution, through Laura’s lens of movement, which makes sense, since she’s also a dance artist! Her approach to human-centered business is refreshing, inspiring, and genuine.
