Creator's Block #39 [Podcast]: How to Thrive When Change Happens

Creator's Block | Podcasts & Shows

For long-time listeners of the Creator's Block podcast, you know it's been awhile since I've stepped into the recording studio to "pull back the curtain on inbound, content, design, and agency life" for all the digital marketers, creatives, and content creators out there. 

The podcast is still undergoing a bit of a virtual face lift, so we won't back on a regular basis for another few weeks.

In the interim, however, I've invited two guests to join me for a special edition of Creator's Block -- Kathleen Booth, our very own VP of Strategy, and Jessie-Lee Nichols, Marketing Manager at Link Labs.

Given the events of the past few months, we're dedicating this week's episode to the big, hairy (and often scary) elephant in the room... change. 

It doesn't matter what your job title is or how long you've been in the game, we all know that nothing stays the same forever. And even the most seasoned pros can stumble over unanticipated hurdles. Of course, sometimes those changes are welcome -- a new promotion, for example. But they aren't always. 

So, how do you go with the flow and not reach for the panic button when the unexpected happens? Tune into this episode of Creator's Block to find out.

About Liz Murphy

As IMPACT's content strategist, Liz does more than wrangle commas. With 10+ years of editorial and inbound experience, she's obsessed with innovating ways to create content that's absurdly useful and effective. (She also works with in-house contributors and clients as an editor, strategist, interviewer, coach, and sometimes therapist.) No matter which hat she wears, her goal is simple -- empower organizations and thought leaders to differentiate themselves and drive measurable results through game-changing content. Liz has worked with organizations across a wide range of industries including cybersecurity and healthcare, to government sales and insurance. Liz lives in Annapolis, MD with her husband and two dogs. She loves public radio and is also a freelance beer writer and an enthusiastic camper. Finally, she has very aggressive feelings about pineapple on pizza. (It's best not to engage her on that topic.)
