This week, Iâ€™m thrilled to be speaking to Violeta Nedkova on how to embrace the life of a creative rebel. Violeta is a coach and a creative rebel who believes you can stop following everyone elseâ€™s rules, be your own boss, and do things your own way â€¦ and make a living doing it. She offers courses, coaching, and classes for creative rebels at her website, www.violetanedkova.com.
Living in Bulgaria, Violeta and I met during the 2018 Multipassionate Must-Haves, where we were both participants. I could tell by visiting her site that weâ€™d get along famously, and Iâ€™m thrilled to have her on the show this week. I think youâ€™ll love her rebel attitude, and the fact that she truly embraces the ideology that there are no rules in building a business.
How it fits in to the tenets of joy: Action
Violeta and I talk a lot about what it means to be a creative multipassionate entrepreneur. Many of us get stuck as we try to narrow down what to focus on, and how to make that into a business. Itâ€™s not easy, especially when you have so many interests, to narrow them down.
â€œIf youâ€™re a multi-passionate,â€ says Violeta about marketing, â€œHow can you niche down? Go with an umbrella brand.â€
What she recommends is to see your business and your life as a puzzle, and approach both as if you are collecting the pieces. The key here is action. Look for the next piece of the puzzle, follow the nudges you have to find what interests you, and give yourself the space and permission to build the picture as you go. Our conversation takes a very interesting turn near the end, when we talk about how resistance and exploring the things that piss us off can both be a way to get in touch with the things that matter, and the things we want to change or work on in the world.
