Kara Leigh Ford on the Realities (Money, Time, Sacrifice and Joy) of Being a Full-Time Creative
Kara Leigh Ford is a potter, businesswoman, and blogger. She studied fine art at university, specializing in painting, and upon graduating she got a 9-5 office job—and hated every minute. To fulfill her creative side she started talking introductory pottery classes in the evenings after work, and ten years later, in 2015, she gave up the day job to become a potter full-time. These days Kara works from her own studio in the garden of her home in Somerset, UK. She grew up by the coast though, and her beautiful pottery (which I'm proud to own a piece of!) is influenced by the changing moods of the ocean and the colours and textures of her favourite beaches. In this episode, Kara shares openly and honestly about what it took to become a full-time working artist—digging into the specifics of money, timelines, sacrifices, and more. We talk about the pros and cons of turning your passion into your career, the reality of feeling career jealousy from time to time, as well as Kara's four guiding principles for her business. We also dive into more personal topics as well, like Kara's choice not to have children, and she shares a lot of the challenges and emotional struggles that have come with that choice. I've loved Kara's work for a good while now, and it was such a delightful treat to sit down together in her pottery studio for this conversation. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! (more…)
Nicole Antoinette Answers 10 Listener Questions
If you’ve listened to this show in the past, you’re already familiar with what we do here. In each episode, I sit down with a wide range of beautifully imperfect people to talk about what's really going on in their lives. Our conversations dive deep into topics like: work, love, sex, money, addiction, friendship, racism, body image, mental health, grief, fear, courage, change, and... everything in between. Today is a little different—this is a Q&A episode, and you’ll get to hear questions that were asked by 10 different members of our Patreon community, along with my honest responses. The only Q&A episodes I’ve done in the past have been topic specific, recorded after my long hikes, and I thought it would be fun to try opening the Q&A up for a wider range of topics. These questions dig into money (like the financial decision to move into my small van this spring), business (like how to grow a business while staying true to yourself), time management, creating a feeling of home while in transition, doing what you want instead of what other people expect, and so much more. I hope you enjoy it! If so I’d be happy to do more of this style of episode in the future—just let me know (more…)
Vanessa Friedman on Why and How To Invest in Friendship
Vanessa Friedman is a queer fat femme Jewitch writer, editor, and photographer currently based in New York. She’s the community editor at Autostraddle and an MFA creative non-fiction candidate at Sarah Lawrence College, and she writes about queer friendship, home, nature, desire, and the body. Her words have been published at Autostraddle, Nylon, Shape, and elsewhere. She also writes a biweekly newsletter called I Miss You, which you can subscribe to over in the show notes. In this episode Vanessa and I have a deep conversation about adult friendship—maintaining existing ones, developing new ones, breaking up with friends, going deeper with friends, investing in friendships as much or more than other types of relationships, etc. I'm fascinated by the beautiful, fraught, and nuanced topic of friendship, and when I started thinking about who to invite for this conversation Vanessa was the first person that came to mind, since friendship is such a bright, genuine part of her life, and it's something she invests in more deeply, intentionally, and impactfully than pretty much anyone I know. If you've been wanting deeper friendships, if you're in a place of re-evaluating your friendships, if you'd love to make new friends or accept a changing or fading friendship, I bet you'll love this episode (and Vanessa's honest story telling!) as much as I do.
