    Great interview! I had never heard of Whitney until this interview. It is very brave of you (Whitney) to share your personal financial struggles. Way to keep things authentic and real! Business is an up and down experience, for sure.

    I absolutely love and am attracted to how honest and real this interview is. Whitney is so helpful to beginning entrepreneurs because she is honest about what the art industry can be like. Her courage to share her story inspires me. Whitney has gained a super fan! I also love how caring Whitney is. I am so glad that she spoke on business being a fight and to not sacrifice my creative urge. I also love how humble she is on how she cherishes the time spent with her family. Thank you Whitney for being so candid! You are fantastic.

    Well thank you Whitney for a choc-full of information and very candid interview! Not only did you give me a new book to read (Making Ideas Happen) but I also appreciated the marriage advice :) You were one of my inspirations when I started my business five years ago and I’ve enjoyed watching your journey and am really looking forward to seeing what lies ahead for you. Now I’m off to “honor my creative urge” Best Wishes to you and your family.

    Whitney, your heart is just pouring out and I love how raw this interview is. Thank you for not sugar coating your story. Things doesn’t always magically fit someplace. Your journey is just a piece of the puzzle and you still have more amazing things to accomplish! It’s so hard to listen to ourselves when your pulled in different directions. You should be so proud of yourself to see the light of what works for you and not anyone else. This is a BIG lesson I’ve learned. Thank you Monica Lee for sharing and bringing insight to creatives.

  • Kathryn Duckett
