How did you choose a creative path?

Deciding to pursue an artistic or creative career path isn’t for the faint of heart. Challenges will abound, but so many of the artists we speak with couldn’t be happier with their choice. So, we asked them about how they made the decision in the first place.

Elizabeth Hulbert | Lifestyle Photographer

I’ve always been the one behind the camera. More times than not, it was my iPhone, but I was known for being that friend/family member that captured all the amazing moments of any event, vacations, milestones of my kiddos, etc.. It wasn’t until a dear friend of mine expressed how successful she thought I could be if I started photography. With some hesitation, but drive, I jumped in feet first. I was coached, learned things on my own, and practiced to understand my equipment, and the art behind photography. Read more>>

Alane Eisenbrandt | Independent Dental Hygienist

Main Street Dental Hygiene is an independent dental hygiene practice. I am able to practice without a dentist on site, but I have an overseeing dentist.

I am so happy to be able to provide patient care that aligns with my knowledge and ethics.
In a peaceful, slow paced environment, I strive to make my patients feel well cared for regarding their oral health as well as their whole health. Personally getting to know each one that comes to me creates a place in me that fills my soul. From the music to the decor to the patient education and treatment has been carefully and thoughtfully curated by me. It’s my happy place. Read more>>

Erin Elizabeth Hynes | Responsible Travel Blogger & Podcaster

I wouldn’t say that I purposefully chose to work in an artistic career. I was always creative, starting in childhood, and so it was a natural move for me to end up in a creative field. I grew up playing the violin, and I was obsessed with reading and writing short stories as a kid. By the time I got to high school, I’d developed a passion for photography and videography. After school I spent my time filming videos with my friends and shooting photos on my DSLR. Read more>>

Andrea Flanagan | Owner – Mountain Star Management

Having experienced some of life’s greatest challenges, I realized nothing is guaranteed. Instead of finding work that might make me happy someday, I decided to find work that made me happy every day. Although creative occupations do not always pay well, I enjoy using my imagination, planning skills, and problem-solving skills to produce something meaningful for others. I feel accomplished and can be myself, which is when I am happiest. Read more>>
