What's brought me to this place right now ...it's been a long road, and it hasn't been a clear path. But there's no way I could be doing this were it not only for the experience that I've had but for the technology that has put me in this place.

This week on the show I sit down with Betsy Cordes. Betsy is an artist, an art director, and much more.
She lives and works in San Francisco with her husband Chuck, an attorney – together they run February 13, a consulting firm to help artists build and run their business. I met Betsy when I first went freelance in 2012 and started hanging out at Makeshift Society in San Francisco, and I was immediately drawn to how warm and thoughtful she was, as well as completely on the ball. Betsy has done much in her life and has a lot to offer her clients, blog readers, and her peers and I wanted to have her on the show because of this.
Today on the show we discuss impostor syndrome, the blog she and her husband write which offers excellent advise on navigating the world as an artist, and we touch on dealing with the overwhelm of social media and her love hate relationship with it, and lastly how she and her family brought to life a family favorite Christmas book through Kickstarter Mr. Dog’s Christmas at the Hollow Tree Inn.
