Anne LaFollette - Late Career Pivot: From Corporate Employee to Digital Entrepreneur Making Multiple 6-Figures

From losing a corporate job at 55 to launching a creative business at 63, today's guest truly embodies her brand’s tagline “It’s never too late to create”.

Anne LaFollette, a former colleague from one of the companies I used to work at, is now a (late)blooming surface pattern designer and the founder and CEO of AnneLaFolletteArt. In this episode, she opens up a bottle of old but gold wine-quality wisdom coupled with a fabulous gallery of new influences from a fellow creative entrepreneur in the industry.

We talk about:
• Why you don’t need to be 10 steps ahead of the people you teach to provide real value and how it actually is an advantage to understand their pain points and stay in their shoes
• Advantages of having a small audience and cherishing the baby steps of your business
• The importance of investing in yourself then paying yourself back by applying and monetizing all the new skills that you’ve learned
• Tactile tips on time management
• What vehicles she personally uses to market her brand on her own
• Directing hot traffic from one platform to the other and how content repurposing is a lifesaver
• Empowerment and the concept of loving your craft, being in charge of your business, and having no boss to tell you what to do
• What she thinks are the two biggest trends in digital marketing
• Her personal mantra rooted in getting better with age
