037 Elise Blaha Cripe:

I'm Elise and I make stuff. That's who I am and that's my job.

I started a blog in 2005 because I wanted to share my thoughts with the Internet. A year later, I began sharing craft projects and tutorials. In 2008, I opened my first online shop and since then, I have made and sold everything from letterpress prints to wooden plant stands.

Over the years, I have learned that while I'll always make stuff, my true passion is in helping people set and work towards their goals. In 2015, I launched the brand GET TO WORK BOOK® which provides tools to help you get your goals organized and do the work to reach them. I believe that big things happen one day at a time and my products are designed to schedule out those days. You can learn more about GET TO WORK BOOK® and shop the line here.

I live in San Diego, California with my husband, Paul, and our two young daughters, Ellerie and Piper.

028 Abby Burd: Knowing your Values

I had the pleasure of interviewing psychotherpist Abby Bird on the show and we tackled some big things that come up in the middle space.  I asked her about the imposter syndrome, comparison trap, and self doubt.  She offered some practical tips and creative exercises that she does with her clients.  She also talked about how she views her own practice as a form of creative expression, which I found insightful.  Creativity truly can arise from anywhere.
