As you know, one of the things I’m passionate about is Courageous Creativity. I’m fascinated by how it shows up in my life and in other creative entrepreneurs. This week’s edition of the Courageous Creativity in Business Interview Series is a video interview I did with Jamie Ridler, Creative Living Coach at Jamie Ridler Studios. I did an extensive interview with Jamie about how she marries art, creativity, and business together! Find out more about how this creative soul struggles with doing creative things “off the cuff” – and how she manages it!
From her first business, laundering Barbie clothes, to the founding of Jamie Ridler Studios, an online hub for bringing creativity to life, Jamie has always been a creative with entrepreneurial leanings. Perhaps with her MBA dad and artist mom, that was inevitable!
Jamie’s heart and experience are deeply rooted in the expressive arts, from her early love of dance to her Masters degree in Theatre. As performer, she’s appeared most often as archetypes and icons with roles ranging from Imagination (aka Imogen Nation) and Papa Smurf to The Authoritative Voice and Sexual Desire. She’s created and directed shows that turned academic research into performance art and that interpreted the colour blue through rants and movement.
She lives outside the box.
Now Jamie channels her energy into online invocations to a more creative life, creating space and opportunity for each of us to discover and express our creative selves in new and powerful ways. On her popular podcast, Creative Living with Jamie, Jamie shares tips and strategies for creative living and interviews both aspiring creatives and rock stars like Julia Cameron, Brene Brown and Danielle LaPorte about their creative lives.
