Being True To Yourself & Having Boundaries in Your Creative Process: Freedom vs. People Pleasing with Singer-Songwriter Natalie Closner


 I have such a beautiful episode for you today. I interviewed singer-songwriter Natalie Closner, who is just an exquisite and extraordinary human being. She is most known for her band, Joseph, which is a trio that she created with her two sisters but she has also recently released new music under her artist name Natalie Schepman. In this interview we talk about being true to yourself and having boundaries in your creative process and what that can look like, and in other words, creative freedom vs people pleasing, and how tempting it can be to abandon ourselves in small decisions that we make on a daily basis…ooof! These topics are so huge and I feel like I want to actually just pull our conversation apart and continue to tap in to each topic that we uncovered, there were so many layers! We talked about the importance of believing in your own art, not needing anything from your audience, healthy self-doubt vs self-confidence, juggling music business, music labels, touring, overcome challenges, navigating disappointment and expectations and the importance of naming your triggers as a mental and emotional resilience tool, as well as the importance of being connected to yourself as "an artist facilitating an artistic experience"…just such juicy topics! I think you are really going to enjoy getting to know her and hearing all of her beautiful stories. 

And on a personal note, I just want to say, thank you so much for listening to the podcast! Last month, the artists rising podcast got 10,000 downloads for the first time and that is a huge celebration and means a lot to me because it’s really been a labor of love these last few years! I don’t ever run ads on the podcast and it’s definitely not something I get paid to do. I really just hope that it somehow inspires other people to step a bit deeper into their own creativity and potential, and hopefully gives people more tools and encouragement to get where they want to go AND much faster than I was able to. So…thank you so much for listening and I hope you will continue to share it with people if it is valuable to you.
