With an online following of over 149,000 on Instagram, the author of over 14 books including her latest, “A Glorious Freedom,” and dozens of prestigious clients including Harvard University, Martha Stewart Living, and Random House Books, Lisa Congdon is arguably one of the most successful online artists in the world. And yet even success has its price. In 2016 Lisa Congdon, physically and emotionally exhausted, suffered from burnout. Here Lisa shares about her story from exhaustion to burnout and her path back to sanity. She also reflects on social media anxiety, the importance of having a clear vision and goals, the role of art and activism, and why it’s never too late to start your thing.
Some things we talk about…
- the role of art in activism
- knowing what, and how, to share (and when it’s best not to)
- the value of going beyond your comfort zone and the necessity, at times, of staying within it
- how to manage the inevitable fears and anxieties in the making of your thing
- dealing with success, burnout, and the path back to sanity
