About This Episode:

Something that I actually learned is that taking some time for yourself, going to bed early or feeding yourself a really healthy dinner that is work as well. Your business has to be healthy and you are your business. - Rachel Kelly

 In this episode of I am chatting with the founder of an all-female co-working space here in Toronto called 'Make Lemonade'. During our conversation, Rachel Kelly shares all about what it takes to have a successful startup, how to create healthy boundaries in life and business and when to say no to opportunities that just don’t work for you. 

Rachel’s first “real” job was a typical 9-5 desk gig where she would spend most days daydreaming how she would redesign the office and where her next adventure would be. When the reality of freelancing with an unstable paycheque hit her hard, she decided to make lemonade. She spent a year researching coworking, studying the market, searching for an office space, battling renovation nightmares, 'till she was finally able to open her very own coworking space, Make Lemonade.

About The Episode:

Welcome to episode #006 of The Couragecast. In this episode I chat with my friend, the talented and uber creative Alyssa Yuhas, about how her desire for community and collaboration have been the catalyst to gather like minded creatives. She shares her heart and vision for the future of Designer Vaca, and what may be on the horizon. 

 
 

For as long as Alyssa can remember, she's been collecting stacks of magazines. She followed that love to design school, where she was trained in visual design & communication. In nearly a decade since, she has worked for a boutique design firm, in-house and for an ad agency before starting her own business 7 years ago. She now works with clients from all over the world: from Sydney to London, from New York to Vancouver. In 2012, she moved across Canada to Toronto and pioneered the creative at C3, a vibrant church community. In 2012, Alyssa co-founded Designer VACA, an anti-conference (or vacation) for female graphic & web designers held in Palm Springs. Alyssa is a seven 'enthusiast' on the Enneagram (https://www.enneagraminstitute.com/type-7/), a mother of boys, a binge podcast listener, was named one of 10 Young Designers to Watch by DesignEdge and this one time Katy Perry used her popcorn carton design at her movie premiere.
