Hello. It’s Amanda, aka “Aardvark Girl,” here to let you know about my new podcast, Business for Self-Employed Creatives. If you’ve been listening to the Womanpreneur Podcast, you know I’m passionate about all things business, especially helping business owners and freelancers succeed… and have fun doing it. There’s nothing like the privilege of working for yourself – making your own rules, owning your time, and trusting your instincts to make the right decisions. You also know I have a “tough love” approach at times, and I’ll be honest – running a business is not always easy. It can feel overwhelming with all the things you have to do, but you CAN do it – you just have to be motivated and willing to do the work. My tips will help you handle the “business” side of things so you can focus on your talent. You already have everything you need to succeed. I’m just here to guide you. I know you’re busy running your business, so these episodes will be short and right to the point. I’ll share the common issues we face, along with the solutions that have worked for me and my clients. I hope you’ll continue along with me on the next part of my journey, and something that’s WAY out of my comfort zone – podcasting alone. Who will sing to me? Who can I make faces at? And how much more obvious will my awkwardness be without having Melissa to help mask it? I guess we’ll find out! So please find “Business for Self-Employed Creatives with Aardvark Girl” & subscribe on YouTube or your favorite podcast platform so you never miss an episode. If there’s a topic you want to hear about – email info@aardvarkgirl.com or DM me on social @aardvarkgirl. And please share with your other self-employed creative friends. Thanks for joining me!

"When something bad happens you have three choices. You can either let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you." - Dr. Seuss Whether we like it or not, everything in life has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Life is filled with so many exciting and interesting chapters, and hopefully we learn a little something from all of them! Amanda McCune and Melissa Moats bring their podcasting chapter to a close... The dear friends, both independent business owners, have decided to head in new directions - with fresh focuses and different priorities. Please tune in as Melissa and Amanda break down a quote by Dr. Seuss and apply it to the state of our world today, while also reminiscing about all they accomplished on their podcast journey together. Your inspiring Womanpreneur co-hosts have shared from the start to always have the courage to begin the journeys that set your soul on fire, and when the moment strikes to finish one book and begin another, honor where your heart and instincts lead you and have no fear. It's been our pleasure to share with all of you and serve you. Please join us for our final empowering episode. We hope you'll continue with us on our new independent journeys, too!

It's been said the best things in life are free. But what if some of the best things in life aren't things at all? When COVID-19 took the world by storm, every aspect of our lives was affected. Our daily trips to the gym, casual dinners out with friends, frequenting our favorite local businesses.  All of it just stopped. Normal as we once knew it drastically changed overnight.  Where do we look for solace? How can we keep our spirits up during a time of crisis? When everything outside is uncertain and amiss, the best place to turn is inward. Getting quiet and becoming present are two gifts you have within you, if you allow yourself to recognize them. And finding ways to appreciate the small things that bring you joy just might help you get through the tough times a little more easily. Amanda and Melissa talk about the little things that are keeping them going - and smiling! The silliness of cats, going for daily walks, listening to the birds outside… maybe you have some of the same "little things" in common! Tune in for an uplifting episode of The Womanprenuer Podcast, and be reminded that you have so much. The best things in life... What could they be? You'll have to join us to see! Keep the conversation going by joining our Facebook Group! To watch the video version of this episode, please visit thewomanpreneurpodcast.com or our YouTube channel.
