Create out loud
with Jennifer Louden
We get remarkably uncomfortable discussing money, but what if we shifted our relationship with the topic by instead recognizing how money can facilitate freedom, power, and creative potential. This is Paco’s mission. As a multi-hander creative, author, consultant, and coach, Paco is passionate about empowering people, particularly those who identify as women, to step into their power.
On today’s show, Jen and Paco discuss:
- How sharp business instincts can be artistic, creative, and fulfilling
- How to make it as independent contractor
- How to figure out how much you’re “worth” when finding clients
- What it means to schedule financial “time”
- Shifting your mindset towards your business to focus on problem solving
