How to Turn Your Creative Passion into a Business

What’s in Today’s Episode:

Amber has been living and working on the road for two years. She shares with Laurén how she came to vanlife, getting hospitality industry jobs on the road, and how she turned her jewelry making hobby into an income generating business.

“I know where I want to go, but I don’t know how I’m going to make money there, but I’m just going to go to that place and I’m going to figure it out from there…I knew what I wanted and when I get to that point, I just go for it and figure it out as I go.”

What Amber and Laurén Chat About:

  • What led her to vanlife

  • How she found her Sprinter van and turned it into her home

  • Transitioning into vanlife

  • Living on the road and working in the hospitality industry

  • Arriving in Sedona and figuring out how to find a job

  • Discovering the van community and making friends

  • How the coronavirus pandemic affected her

  • Starting her own business selling jewelry

  • How she is selling the jewelry she makes; Etsy and art festivals

“I’m just going to fully lean into this, I’m going to try it and if it doesn’t work out, I can always go back and get a job somewhere or do something else, so I decided to start my own jewelry business.”
