As creatives we are suckers for the next new project, the shiny object that happens to catch our attention, and we are compelled to chase that thing, but does it serve or purpose? Most times, no, but occasionally you can have two different focuses in your business and it’s good to pursue them both while you are hot and heavy into them. Our friend Kristy Oustalet is a champ at this.
Kristy is an artist and a creative coach, and she’s killing it in both areas. She’s a popular event artist in New Orleans, painting live events for big dollars, and she’s also a successful business coach for creatives with a refreshing take on things, and this conversation completely embodies that feeling.
On top of all that, Kristy also has her own show called the ACE show (Adventures in Creative Entrepreneurship). It’s a video podcast, and she was kind enough to feature me on her show as well. You can find that show at kristyoustalet.com/dave. Please go check out her show and let her know how cool she is for letting me take up space on her site.
