You Are A Perfect Box! Unwrapping Your Personal Brand With Sisarina: Ep. 240




Truth Bomb, JellyVisionaries:

"If you don't have a personal brand within a creative business, you are screwed." --Melanie Spring 


Melanie Spring and Rebecca Layton Gunther help us wrap our minds around what branding is, and why we shouldn't shy away from a personal brand. Melanie is the boss lady at Sisarina, a Washington DC-based agency that specializes in branding on purpose. Rebecca is the Chief Culture Officer at Sisarina and works directly with clients to express their brand within every aspect of their business. 

The ladies encourage Jen to embrace her personal brand and explain how we are all already nice little boxes that we need to accept in order to communicate an authentic brand and earn the trust of our clients and customers. It's not only ok, to be ourselves, it's an imperative for our success! 

Not only that, but you don't need thousands of dollars to develop your personal brand successfully. You are going to love all the advice in this Jellysode!

"Just because you have money doesn't mean you can connect with people."

--Melanie Spring

When branding is at its most successful you are attracting the right clients, collaborators, and partners.  This is why it is so important to get yourself on brand as soon as possible. According to Melanie, it shouldn't be hard. If it is hard, then you probably aren't being true to yourself. It feels good and right when you are yourself within your brand. 

"Stay solid in your brand like a lighthouse." --- Rebecca Layton Gunter

What if you created that paycheck for yourself? --Kris Loya 

Our guest co-hosts this week are the creative power couple, Kris and Steve Loya! Kris creates "paintbrush meditations" in watercolors and Steve is known for his multi-media, fantastical Splotch Monsters who live on Splotch Monster Island.

This is a conversation relevant to all creators working hard to create their own income streams. We can't wait for you to hear the excitement from Kris and Steve. Every day is Saturday when you do what you love, JellyVisionaries!

Creators! Protect & Profit From Your Intellectual Property!: Ep. 237



Everyone has the right to the protection of the moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, literary, or artistic production of which he is the author. --Article 27 of the Universal Declaration Of Human Rights 

Get excited, JellyVisionaries because you are big-time property owners! As creators, you have intellectual property that if properly claimed and protected, gives you excusive rights that can lead to additional revenue potential through licensing opportunities. 

We breakdown several kinds of intellectual property (IPs) that are relevant to creatives, including copyrights, industrial design rights, trademarks, and trade dress. 

Protecting your intellectual property is just one of the many steps to success through licensing. This is all about combining your artistic vision with something that sells. Be a smARTist!

Licensing Expo May 23-25, 2017 


We will have another Jellysode all about licensing in the near future--stay tuned! Are you ready to start protecting your original creations? We hope so! 

If this episode got you psyched, motivated, energized, entertained, etc--we'd love an iTunes or Stitcher review or an email!
