In business, has anyone ever said you to “you’re so lucky” and it leaves you, well, a bit offended or stumped? If so, this episode is for you. This week on the YCS Podcast I talk to my friend and colleague Madeline Rawlings from The Binding about a topic we are both super passionate about – “It’s not luck, it’s hard work”.Before we dive in, let me tell you more about Maddy – aka the designer behind many of the brands you love. Maddy and I actually first met through Instagram when I moved to the Sunshine Coast a few years ago. It was a mutual love and appreciation of each other’s work that forged our friendship. I have been so lucky to work with Maddy across several client projects and her creativity and outlook on life and business for such a young woman never ceases to amaze me. For those of you who don’t know Maddy, she’s a graphic designer and is now based on the Gold Coast. She launched The Binding in 2016 when demand for her graphic design work grew. She’s a passionate and positive creative who is obsessed with bringing a business to life through thoughtful designs and collaborates closely with likeminded, niche creatives to deliver projects for clients worldwide. Today on the episode, we chat about true self, how luck has nothing to do with hard work, how to respond to people when they say you’re lucky, tips for actually doing the work, decision making with intention, the comparison trap, what life is really like behind social media, passion over potential, how to attract new clients and customers, and ways in which you can create your own luck in business – big hint…lots of hard work. Yup, it’s a big episode jam packed with lots and lots and lots of wisdom bombs. Now before we get stuck into the episode, I am delighted to let you know that Maddy has created a “Decision Making with Intention Worksheet" which you can download for free from the YCS website. Simply head over to yourcreativestart.com/podcast and download the checklist from Maddy’s episode show notes. Not only is it beautifully designed and should sit on your wall at home, it’s also highly thought-provoking and gives you the tools and guidance you need to make decisions with intention and clarity.
