Running a creative business can be tough at times: so it is important to take care of ourselves and our mental health.

In this episode I chat with Laura Brassie – a professional crisis counselor who also runs Ivory & Pine, a blog focused on mental health, self care, and intentional living.

If you have ever experienced burnout, stress, or overwhelm (and let’s be honest – who hasn’t?!) I recommend you take the time to have a listen to this episode, where Laura and I discuss some tips and ideas to help overcome or avoid landing yourself in the land of burnout.
