In this episode, I go behind the scenes & explain my direction for 2018, how I found it & how it translates in actual steps.

As every year, I have done my yearly review, using the Desire Map from Danielle Laporte to really zoom in into how I want to feel and what I should do to feel this way.

EXPERIMENTS: How I am ready to experiment much more this year, including travelling and going nomad.

Grounding myself and how it translates into tiny daily actions.

CONNECT: I explain the 3 areas I want to connect more & better (hint hint I talk about you).

AMPLENESS: how that concept is the North Star for many decisions this year.

In lots of Facebook groups, all around me, I can see lots of question around WordPress, because people can’t really understand how it works, what it’s made of.

WordPress is a great software, it’s free to use (though you need to pay for hosting).

It’s a great way to build a website. It can also create lots of frustration when you don’t know its parts or what you can do and cannot do with it safely.

Why wordpress is like a Human

Why WordPress is like a Human

Today I thought I would explain a bit what is what in a WordPress site with a metaphor to make it easier. You'll have the answer to these questions.

  • What is WordPress?
  • What is a plugin?
  • What is a widget?
  • What is a theme and can I change it easily?
  • Why should I be careful with Drag-and-drop themes like Divi

This is episode 0.

Episode 0 ? Yeaaah. Zero because I'm just explaining today what the podcast is about and who I am. So I’m Pascale, I’m French, that would explain the little Frenglish that may happen on this podcast (sorry about that) .I live in London, I’m a make-up artist (don’t expect though too much make-up chat on this podcast though because all I want to talk about in this podcast is about creativity, systems, tools and self care. (And apps). And Breathing. Lots of breathing.

Why ? Because over the years, being surrounded by creative people, I have realised that I have a few superpowers that come handy : I can translate from Geek to English easily, I love hunting for great resources, I am really good at finding solutions to limitations and I want to share all this with you.

So back to the podcast.

Roots for creativity. Breathe. Reset. Thrive.

Breathe

. 1st Because we all run. We run for work. We run through a never ending to do list. It’s hard. We don’t take a slow pace anymore. It’s always run run run.

I’ve realised the last few years that just taking 2 seconds, making a pause, taking a deep breath, makes everything better. It makes everything easier. So I will invite you to take a deep breathe and I really really hope you are going to join me for that moment. Because you will see how this tiny habit can make a difference.

Reset.

Because I really really want you to reset your mindset. I want you to think that tech is actually friendly, that you can embrace it. I want you to embrace all the goodness you can find on the Internet, all the systems. You may think “oh no, I’m right-brain, systems are not for me or I hate routines. I hope I’ll make you change your mind about it. Rituals are amazing, systems will support you and help you create much more.

I’ll have lots of people coming to talk about their field, people who really know their stuff, they’ll be able to help you out understand what public relation is, what good accounting is, what is their routines for success in their creative work, how you can heal your relationship with money, how money is nothing and is everything for your creative business. Lots of different guests, some solo episodes, lots of different subjects, all for helping you create, enjoy your business and thrive.

Yes. it’s the 3rd point.

Thrive.

Because You want to create and Thrive. You want to be happy, feel joy at the end of the day, not burnt out. Feeling stressed out, seeing you don’t have the money that goes with a thriving business.

Creativity is fruitful, is healthy. It should bring you up, not down. Feeling lonely, stressed out, miserable, not able to enjoy the company of your loved ones because the hard side of the business is eating at you.

That’s what we are going to be talking about in the podcast. Please subscribe to the podcast, go on Itunes or Stitcher, you can look for Roots for creativity and click on the subscribe button.

I also invite you to pop on the website and subscribe to the weekly Mulch to get goodies, all podcast & blogpost episodes and some surprises.

Lots of people have asked me what is a podcast when I was explaining I was launching mine.

A podcast is like a radio show.

It's not hosted on a radio, but on the internet and you can easily subscribe for free via an app, on your phone or computer.

You can listen to it whenever is convenient for you.

You download episodes on your phone so you can listen to them when you are offline. It makes an excellent choice when you can't use wifi or data on the go: on the plane, stuck in traffic or abroad/places where you know your connection will be difficult.

You can also listen to it on the web...

There are podcasts about any subject

So you can learn about business, personal finances, get entertained by a comedian or get to know actors in a different way. Or getting inspired listening to me and the fabulous guests I invite on the  Right-Brain Geek show.  

It's a great way to enjoy content while traveling, commuting, running, working out or cooking for example. You can learn, get entertained or get to sleep (yes I know at least one podcast who claims it helps you get to sleep).
