EP 084 | The Power Of Woo Woo with Beth Halstead



About this Episode

The formula for success is still 80% business + 20% creative. However, there’s room for some woo woo attributes within the 80%. In this episode we explore vital characteristics of the successful design pro, such as integrity, intention, confidence and reflection.

In this episode we learn:

  • balance isn’t necessarily the goal, but equilibrium is
  • powerful business lessons are expensive
  • be clear about your expectations with clients
  • set a goal and then leave the outcome to the universe
  • there is no such thing as a design emergency

Take Aways

“Lessons are expensive”, Beth Halstead
