Lesson 14: Giving Back, Balance, and Turning A Hobby into a Dream Career, Part 2


How to turn a hobby into a business and dream career

With Kyndra Holley

I am relentless in my pursuit of what sets my soul on fire.
I refuse to quit, even if gets hard or awful.
I keep going.

— Kyndra Holley

This week on Creativity School, we’re back with Part 2 of our conversation with Kyndra Holley, international bestselling cookbook author and the powerhouse behind the massively popular food blog Peace, Love and Low Carb.

If you didn’t listen to the first part of our talk, go back and listen to Episode 13 to find out all about how Kyndra started her blog back in 2011 as a hobby that made zero money, and eventually turned it into a full time dream career that now supports her family.

On this episode, we discuss the importance of advocating for your work and standing up for the vision that you believe in, and why we should create from a place of power and never hold back and stifle our own creativity. Kyndra also shares her thoughts on how to be healthy overall so we can have a long term and sustainable business, and why your career can’t be motivated by money.
