GirlSkill Podcast Episode 99: Good Style, Good Design, and Good Business: Discovering Yourself, Work and Motherhood
I first learned about Anna Rova’s GirlSkill podcast when she featured my super talented friend and client Meagan Morrison of Travel Write Draw in Episode 72. Meagan suggested Anna reach out to me and today my episode is live.
I love Anna’s mission of sharing stories of strong women doing their thing in the world. As you’ll hear in the episode, understanding people’s stories is a big part of my life and as the years go by, I am getting more comfortable sharing my own. And while Anna and I don’t necessarily see eye-to-eye on the limitations of traditional gender roles, she couldn’t have been more gracious. I really enjoyed my conversation with her and I hope you enjoy listening in!
About The Episode:
Cody McBurnett has always lived and breathed creative entrepreneurial culture, splitting her formative years between her mother’s salon and her grandmother’s atelier. She learned early on about the importance of good style, good design, and good business—and how they can completely change one’s mood, outlook, and chances for success.
Like a great haircut or the perfectly tailored ensemble, good brand design is an eye-catcher that allows the real—and best—of what you have to offer shine through. On that same note, bad brand design, like a bad haircut or an unflattering outfit, can seriously distract from the good stuff. In this vein, Cody is Loki Loki’s brand stylist, nailing the design and strategy and attracting the eye of consumers so they can discover the outstanding products and services each client’s business has to offer.
I do have to produce and at the end of the day I can’t bullshit that. I have to spend the time and sit with the client, have the conversation, and followup, and deliver the design, and work with them and be invested in their business… It’s a lot more work than it looks like.
Join us for a conversation about producing excellent work, good brand design and working for yourself. We’ll also talk about:
- The power of a “Disney NO” in motherhood and career
- Cody’s tattoos journey
- Lessons learned from running Loki Loki
- Feminine vs girly concepts in design
- Cody’s idea of femininity
- Entrepreneurship and motherhood
- Definitions of success
- Top 3 qualities of producing excellent work
