How This Wild Creative and Momtrepreneur Keeps Everything Balanced

Hey guys! Stephen and Chelsey here with another power packed episode of the Rainmaker Family Podcast. 

Whenever we hear of someone wanting to work in the arts industry, it’s almost instinct to think “Oh poor thing will never be able to make ends meet.” and automatically lumping them into “the starving artist” category. 

Why is it that we don’t see art and creativity as valuable assets? We all need things that look cute and are eye-catching. We all enjoy watching people as they create and seeing the finished product. Yet too often we don’t see that creativity as a service of value, but rather something that should be donated. 

Today’s guest Helen Graham, owner of Crown Made, shares how to break out of the starving artist mindset and show people the value of art and creativity. 

Helen is a mom of two, a business owner, and community creator. From a young age she had artistic ability and passion, but didn’t always have the support behind it. Once she became a mom she stayed home and tried the online grind, but wasn’t satisfied. She knew that in order to be her best mom and best self, she had to take a bold leap. 

Join us as we hear Helen’s journey into entrepreneurship, the power of women in business, the worth of creativity, breaking free of mom-shaming, and the community she has created with her art. 

Get ready to be encouraged, and challenged in today’s episode of the Rainmaker Family Podcast.
