A common question I hear these days is, “How do I turn my PASSION into a career?” There’s a lot of talk about PASSION. Everyone has a passion. We all have passions. But is it POSSIBLE to turn that passion into a full time income? Is it possible to not spend every day going through the motions, but to wake up every day looking FORWARD to getting to work? Can we do work that both fuels our passion while also making a profit? Yes, I truly believe the answer is YES.
My guest this week is Marisa Flacks, the founder of RISE Creative. Marisa has actually become a dear friend of mine over the past 7 months or so, and I have come to really love and admire her. Her branding agency, RISE Creative, that specializes in working with businesses in the ethical and sustainable space is amazing and Marisa is so knowledgable and honestly SO wise beyond her years. You are going to ADORE her.
Marisa is the Ethical Brand Strategist behind RISE Creative. A Cultural Anthropologist and corporate fashion drop-out, Marisa started RISE Creative to serve ethical brands, social enterprises, and small businesses through creative storytelling. Outside of her work, she enjoys exploring health & wellness, all the podcasts, pretending to be the next Joanna Gaines, and hanging with her puppy in the Queen City, Charlotte, North Carolina.
