Learning new things is hard. I’m not sure if it’s the lack of time that comes with adulting or a classic case of “mom brain,” but my attention span for formal education isn’t what it once was. As a creative professional and entrepreneur, I’m encountering a new challenge or decision that expands my capacity for growth every single day – I feel like I’ve practically earned a degree in business by building one! But there are times when I know I need to learn new skills or concepts in order to take my work and life to the next level in a more focused and concentrated way. So today I want to tell you my techniques and secrets for learning new things as someone who is short on both time and brain space.


LEARNING WHILE WALKING


I recently invested $2,000 dollars in an online course that I wasn’t doing. Every time I sat down to my laptop to tackle my studies, I found myself instead checking email or tackling my to-do list. So I finally downloaded the audio files from the course to my phone and listened to the content while on a walk. Creative masterminds like Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg are known for holding meetings and brainstorming sessions while walking. Just try it for yourself! Take a walk while you’re listening to an audio book, a podcast, or even an online course. In fact, when I realized this was the easiest way to learn something new, I recorded audio files for my own branding ecourse students! Pro-tip: be sure to open a text file on your smartphone for jotting notes as you go!

“I've had a successful creative entrepreneurial run for seven years, but have spent the last two working for nightmare customers, disliking the work, and scratching my head. Well, scratch be gone! I LOVED this Braid ECourse! I've not only identified where I've gone off-track, but am whiteboarding all these Braid exercises and coming up with solutions. I have a lot of work to do, but I'm excited to tackle it, like super-giant-goose-bump excited!"
– Nicole Christie / Writer / Seattle, Washington

BRANDING & VISIONING for INDIVIDUALS
We start with a consultative Vision Guide to clarify your positioning, then we create your Brand Platform.

“For years I tried to DIY my brand and never captured the look and feel of my business. I knew what I wanted to convey, but didn’t know how to pull all the pieces together. After just our first meeting they were translating my voice, my energy and style like magic fairies! They nailed it with my Vision Guide & Brand Platform. I’m so glad I decided to invest in hiring Braid, they knew exactly how to weave together my vision. It was the best gift I could have given myself and my practice.”
– Angie Viets / Therapist / Lawrence, Kansas

“I was looking for an agency that could help us present a clear story to our board, volunteers & donors. Braid opened up a dialogue we didn’t realized we needed! They brought authenticity, sensitivity & simple clarity to our brand. Our Vision Guide & Brand Platform are a constant go-to when writing grants, reaching out to donors & sharing on social media, as we help kids feel like kids in a hard time for families. We know it looks good, it’s the right message & it gives us confidence connecting with our community.”
