Art and Creating Your Own Rainbows With Tania Ahmed

Today I talk to Tania Ahmed, who is a creative content maker, crafts tutor, and maker from the UK. She has been crafting almost all of her life and she produces creative content for magazines and craft manufacturers and teaches at independent stores, craft shows and for local charities. 

This episode is for anyone who has been told that you can’t make money from your passion, especially for you artists and creatives who have bought into this idea or have been hiding your art.

Tania provides really great action steps, inspiration and mindset activities you can do to continue towards working your goal. She shares how she has fought against the resistance of things that keep her from her creativity, and she will inspire you with her story of how she’s been able to use a growth mindset, being grateful and being faithful to do what she loves for a living.

She is very passionate about sharing her love for craft and most days you will find her at home often covered in glitter glue or paint!

Mastering Logistics & Time Management

On this week’s episode, we talk about the importance of logistics and time management. As artists and entrepreneurs, we need to strengthen this skill set so that we can get our gifts out into the world smoothly and seamlessly.

We’ll be discussing how you can set yourself up for success with tips on developing a growth mindset and how having a handle on the logistics required for business and daily life will help to reduce stress and anxiety.

When we’re better organized we can work from a position of strength rather than from a reactive place.

Personal Growth, Comedy, and Religion

We’re joined today by the talented Ameerah Sanders, who spoke with me about her own struggle with depression, self-acceptance, and her journey to becoming a professional comedian.

I appreciate how Ameerah spoke openly and from the heart. While we did share a lot of laughs (especially since Ameerah is a hilarious comedian), we also took the conversation to some very deep and very real places. You’ll appreciate the insights and truths that Ameerah shares.

Ameerah Sanders is a standup comic, writer, and filmmaker based in Kansas City, MO. Her comedy comes from her post-9/11 Black Muslim background and her current post-college life. She hopes to connect with other people of color and serve as an example that the life of a Black woman is not inherently political. She's performed at the Hollywood and Kansas City Improv. She'll be at the Cream City comedy fest in Milwaukee, WI May 9-12th and Art of Female Comedy Fest June 12th-13th.

Special Birthday Episode!

What?! It’s my Birthday! Each year, as a way to intentionally reflect, I share a special birthday edition of T.H.E. Celebration. This year has seen so many blessings come my way, and I am so grateful for them. Even those challenging days, when I lay awake at night worrying what my next move should be, brought opportunities for growth. Ultimately, 31 has been a great ride.

To jump into a 32nd year that is grounded in gratitude, I’ll be going through my birthday ritual with you, which is to share one self-love affirmation for each year that I’ve been alive. That means that today, there are 32 of them!

As I reflected upon this past year I realized that books and reading have been such a source of inspiration and grounding for me. One of the best ways to honor that aspect of my life is to connect it to my birthday celebration.

Which is why I’ll also be sharing 7 quotes from 7 different books that have shaped, guided, and impacted me this past year.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all of the love, support, and affirmation you share with me. I am so grateful to be in community with you.  

You’re the best. I hope you enjoy today’s birthday edition episode.
