C-E-OVER-IT

By Carli
I'm Carli Anna, a brand designer & educator. I created this podcast because I'm honestly a little over the "how-to" podcasts for small biz owners because everybody's businesses are so different from each other. Instead, we're going to be sharing stories, relating with you on hard experiences (we've all been there), and just HAVING FUN! The perfect podcast for those who both love & hate running their creative business. email us hello@carlianna.co if you want to share a story or have a question!

Why Creatives Suck at Making Money
Culturally photographers, graphic designers, artists, we just don’t make a lot of money? But, How many times have you heard that your job is easily replaceable? But who’s fault is it? Popular blogs will tell you that it’s “creatives not being assertive enough” or “creatives building themselves into a box”. And I’m calling bullcrap on it. Today we’re diving into the idea of where the norm of starving artists came from and how to change the narrative for good!

BURNOUT with Kenzie Amick
Ya, we’ve all heard of how to avoid burnout as a creative but what about identifying the root cause of it?? And for the love of all that’s good can we normalize being burnt out?

Money Hustle Culture in The Creative Industry
In this episode, we talk about the good and the bad messages we hear in the creative industry around money. On one side you hear "hustle and focus on money because it's the primary goal to get more sales" and then you hear the complete opposite "Money is greedy and evil, don't ever strive for it." So how do we balance the two messages and why is it important to talk about money as creatives? This episode is a real deep authentic talk along with all of your opinions and ideas submitted to discuss! carlianna.co instagram.com/carlianna_ 10kgirlgang.com tiktok.com/carlianna

Me, myself & I: introducing Carli Anna
I started my business at the tender age of 19 and I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I felt like a crazy wacko for having difficult clients, I couldn't get the client to pay, and felt compelled to do exactly what everybody else was doing to find success. Nobody was telling me any real solutions to find success *insert five vague and generalized ideas to get money freebie here* So I started finding the only clues to success I could see, which was an aesthetic and business personality that I thought I needed to survive. Spoiler I survived but found myself incredibly unhappy, burnout and tired. In this episode, we talk about why it's so important to be yourself and have fun in your business. The whole reason for this podcast carlianna.co 10kgirlgang.com instagram.com/ceoveritpodcast instagram.com/carlianna_
