Ep. 161 From Teacher to Small Business Owner with Laura Jones of Laura Jane Illustrations

Today I sit down with guest Laura Jones, the talented illustrator and creator behind Laura Jane Illustrations. Once a dedicated teacher, Laura made the bold leap to pursue her passion for art full-time.

Laura shares how scary it was to start over and the challenges she faced along the way. Her story shows us that it’s okay to go after what you want, even if it means learning from scratch and facing some doubts.

She also chats about how she built a community around her artwork on Instagram and the challenges of balancing being a small business owner and content creator in today’s digital age.
