Show Notes

“Creativity does not demand perfection. It just asks that you put something out there.”

—  Emily Milling

This episode of the Quiet Powerhouse Podcast is just a little bit different.

The guest this week… is me.

In this crossover episode with The Ultimate Creative podcast, host Emily Milling interviews me about the Mindful Entrepreneur Membership — and we find ourselves in a fascinating discussion about introversion, mindfulness, and the creative process along the way! 

As a multi-passionate creative and entrepreneur, Emily is used to moving a mile a minute, but recent health concerns have forced her to slow down… and she’s discovered that sometimes pumping the brakes is the very best thing that you can do with your business.

Emily is an absolute delight, and the discussion not only digs deep into the true meaning of creativity and how to best harness it… but it’s also completely hilarious!

Press play now to learn how The Ultimate Creative herself uses mindfulness to get the best results out of her endlessly creative brain, how the Mindful Entrepreneur Membership helped her to let go of a toxic client, and how I choose the themes that we address each month in the membership group. It all starts here!

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌

  • Why it’s so important to check in with yourself each and every time you show up in front of your audience
  • When slowing down can actually be the best thing you can do for your business — and why the “hustle” mindset is so destructive
  • How mindfulness can actually enhance your creativity — with activities to kickstart your process!

About Emily Milling: Emily Milling is the founder and CEO of The Ultimate Creative, a podcast production agency based out of Toronto. When she’s not leading her amazing team, you can find her crackin’ yolks with her comedy troupe, Big Chick Energy Sketch, or making horror movies with her partner.
