15: Sofia Quintero of Nom Nom Insights
I'm so stoked to share this episode. Like many people on this show, Sofia is a friend, collaborator, mentor, and someone I look up to so, so much. Not only for her professional accomplishments, but I love Sofia's energy and outlook on life. This woman has mastered the healthy work hard, play hard routine. She also has a super interesting story. In this episode, she shares the story of her unconventional career path as a marketer, change management consultant, skate shop owner, magazine...
14: Selena Vinya, business owner, marketer, actor, screenwriter, producer
Selena Vidya is one of the busiest people I know but you wouldn't know it talking to her. She keeps her cool while speaking as an SEO expert, running a full-stack marketing agency, multiple e-commerce shops, a podcast, and a newly launched online course for outreach. Oh and she's also an actor, screenwriter, and producer. I'm tired just typing it out but the woman manages to maintain admirable energy levels while working hard to keep her sanity. In this episode, we talk about how she does...
13: Alicia Toldi and Carolina Porras of Piney Wood Atlas
Piney Wood Atlas is a collaborative project between artists Carolina Porras and Alicia Toldi. PWA visits and catalogs small, new, and unconventional residencies across the U.S., a little bit of Canada, and maybe the rest of the world someday. They visit each residency on a road trip together, talking to the hosts, artists, and getting a feel for what it’s like to be a resident in the space. Check out their lovely and super helpful new website. I love my physical copy of PWA and highly...
12: Paul Jarvis, writer, designer, marketer, course creator
Paul Jarvis is a designer, writer, marketer, podcaster, and course creator. I highly suggest subscribing to his weekly Sunday Dispatches where he shares his authentic insights on business, marketing, and the industry in general. They're pretty entertaining too, often making me chuckle out loud. Paul has never taken a traditional path. He dropped out of university, left a successful agency job, built a successful freelance design career, and left that to build products. Somewhere in there,...
11: Sarah Judd Welch of Loyal
Sarah Judd Welch is the founder and CEO of Loyal, a digital agency based in New York City that specializes in community strategy, customer experience, brand communications, and product strategy.

I deeply admire her humble confidence and steadfast commitment to her values. In this episode, we talk about how she stands by what her and her...
10: Caroline Partamian of Scully
Caroline Partamian is a musician and curator who has also spent time working for the Metropolitan Museum of Art and just finished working on a book with artist Laurie Anderson. She curates her own projects about muscle memory and the process (relevant, I know). Additionally, she's a trained dancer and is composing music for Eva Dean Dance Company, a dance company she helped manage. She also started a zine called Weird Babes that gives artists a safe place to put works that aren't...
09: Sarah Schulweis of Anchor & Orbit
Sarah Schulweis is one of those people who can best be described as magnetic, at least in my opinion. She's so smart,confident, honest, and vulnerable. If I lived in Oakland, I'd make her hang out with me all the time just so I could learn from her. She's the founder of Anchor & Orbit, a business consultancy that helps growing businesses set up processes, systems, and a realistic plan to reach the goals that mean the most to them. She acts like a hired operational co-founder, more or less....

In this episode, Mia Braverman, founder of the public art project, What Is a Reason You Get Up in the Morning? and Cita Stationary shares her insights on fostering inclusivity and creating change by embracing your authenticity in your actions. She also shares a ton of actionable tips for makers on how to get their products into boutiques.

mini episode: recap of season 1 + intro to season 2
oh, hello. It's 2018, baby and Season Two of The Process Podcast is hhhheerrreee. I never officially wrapped up Season One but that's the beauty of passion projects - flexibility. This short, 12-minute episode is essentially me just blabbing on about what Season One covered and who we talk to in Season Two. I promised myself I'd get something out this week, and here it is. The best part of this episode is that getting it done was a small step in publishing the real ones! Next week...
