In this episode, I'm chatting with Joyce Gutierrez, who is the founder of Modern Creative Pursuits.
AN EX 9-5’ER TURNED FULL-TIME CREATIVE, EDUCATOR, AND BUSINESS COACH.
A few years ago, Joyce was in desperate need of a creative outlet from her tech and advertising job. After some trial and error - seriously she tried all the things including a crafting blog with her dog Pancake - She found calligraphy and became obsessed with all things lettering.
2015 brought on a layoff from that “stable” job life and it lit a fire in her. She knew the next job would be last because she was no longer going to allow someone else to have a say in such a large part of her life - her income and livelihood. Plus, let’s be real - her day job was not her jam.
SHE STARTED HER BUSINESS AS A SIDE HUSTLE.
An Etsy shop, wedding calligraphy jobs, and logo design led her to teaching workshops, launching creative online courses, and coaching other creatives in starting their own businesses.
Turns out you can be paid for doing something you’re completely in love with - while helping other creatives build their own successful businesses.
