Ep 024 // How to find a co-founder, test your relationship & go all in with Think Creative Collective (Courage)

This week's Courage & Clarity conversations are double the fun as I'm joined by not one, but two brilliant business ladies: Emylee Williams & Abagail Pumphrey, the founds of Think Creative Collective.

 

Emylee & Abagail are the brains behind this strategy powerhouse which offers courses, a podcast and lots of clarity for frazzled entrepreneurs who want to get more sh*t done.

But of course, there's more to this story than a couple of bosses who've got it all figured out. 

Emylee dropped out of graduate school two weeks before her program began and originally thought she'd own a cupcake business. 

Abagail climbed the corporate ladder in the web design world only to be laid off from work. 

In this episode these two spill all the details of their individual paths to doing meaningful work on their own terms, including lots of bumps & bruises along the way. 

My favorite part, though, is how they decided to come together. 

After joining forces to run a webinar together, the two sat on the floor of Abagail's home office and realized their values & aspirations were so similar -- and, that they had a blast building cool stuff together. Think Creative Collective was born.

In addition to these inspiring stories, you'll hear: 

  • How Emylee went from making next to nothing as a photographer for a year, to walking out of a client's house with a $1500 check 
  • How the two completely overhauled their business model -- which allowed them both to take January completely off, and both have only worked part time so far in 2017
  • What to look for in a co-founder relationship, and how to test it out before going "all in"
