Episode 110: Today I talk with Julie & Jodie McLeod about Art Without Limits, a non-profit in Santa Barbara, Ca. It’s a unique program that connects Artists with mentors.
Art professionals that can really train them and give them a practical education that you can’t get in art school. They learn the real world day-to-day of the artists, they learn how to market, how to do finances, how to promote and sell. Best of all this is free! They are required to give back to the organization and the mentor.

Episode 101: Today I talk to Ursula Barton about her Jailbreak Studios & Collective, which is an all female group. I first heard about Ursula on Chris Guillibeau’s Side Hustle School podcast, where she talked about her signature Cityscapes; the art she created based upon her hometown, Portland’s skyline. I loved the story so much, I knew I had to get her on my podcast, so through the power of the internet, I reached out & connected!
