Episode 30: Lianna Patch

Sometimes taking something too far is the best way to get it right. After burning out with her editing business, Lianna went back to corporate. It didn’t take long for her to realize that was a big mistake. Here’s how she undid that decision and found the fun and balance she needed to fall back in love with her business.

  • “Like I don’t know, maybe a pun?” — If that’s how you’re defining “funny”, you might want to dial it up. Lianna and I break down how going too far can actually help you get it just right
