The Insidious Habits That Destroy Your Business and Creativity with James Marlowe of Marlowe Ink: Ep. 182


"The ego is very good at making you think it is necessary." 

- James Marlowe, Owner of Marlowe Ink & Artbot Gallery

Sometimes, you switch out of auto-pilot, and realize that you've wasted precious time and energy on stupid, worthless, little things that have added nothing of value to your life. On their own, they seem innocent enough. But, these little things, given a little time, grow to giant time leaches, engorged with the blood from your missed opportunities and untapped potential.

We talk to James Marlowe, the owner of Marlowe Ink Tattoo and the InkBot Art Gallery about recognizing and conquering, the insidious dangers that can f*ck up your business, creativity, and your life. 

"We try to slow down the process so people can make an informed decision about a tattoo that will look good in the long run."--James

James gave up his insidious dangers: excessive drinking, drugs, video games and making excuses and gained: a thriving business, a pop surrealist art gallery, leadership qualities and a more meaningful, balanced life. That is what it's all about!

Episode #179: Funky Hobby to Small Business Success: Soul & Ink Crew

Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you say, "F*ck it, this is what I'm doing!" --Sherry Meneses Co-Founder Soul & Ink

Fun Hobby to Seriously Fun Business:

This week on The JellyVision Show Podcast, we welcome Sherry and Frankie Meneses, the husband and wife creative tag team behind Soul & Ink. Soul & Ink specializes in activating events with a live screen printing experience.

Frankie and Sherry are both award-winning graphic designers who were growing weary of staring at computer screens all day. After designing a custom tee-shirt for a family member that turned into a screen printing party, they started to think they were onto something..A couple of parties later, their unique small business was born. Just eight months later, they are already looking to scale their model. We are so inspired by their work ethic and well-earned success.

We talk to Sherry and Frankie about their business and the pros and cons of turning your hobby into a business. We love the honest insights they share from the belly of the small business beast. Prepare to be inspired to look at your hobby a whole new way.
