As you’ll hear in this conversation, there’s a bit of connective tissue that exists between creatives who are passionate about what they do, know what they want, and are driven to make that happen. Those types of people gravitate together, and become stronger with each new connection.

In March, at the Craftcation Conference, I was sitting in the lobby bar of the hotel talking with a bunch of different creative folks, when out of the din, this hand reaches out and taps me on the arm. I look over and this women, with a eyes that lit up the room, smiled and asked, “Did you say you were from Long Beach?”

That was the beginning to a series of conversations between myself and Jessie Artigue of Style and Pepper, and I can say without a doubt that I’m a little bit better of a person for it. My chat today with Jessie goes like typical Fresh Rag fashion where we set out to talk about one thing, but let it take on a life of it’s own.

As the title states, we talk about many things such as what it’s like to run a popular fashion and lifestyle blog, the struggle of putting out a quality podcast, and how salt is a universal element in just about any successful venture.

Don’t believe me? Just listen.
