Today we’re talking to Alison Rice, award-winning leader in media and conscious creator.
Prior to starting her conscious business, she was the publisher of Women’s Lifestyle at Allure Media where she led Popsugar. In 2015, Alison launched the highly successful Who What Wear, Byrdie, and MyDomaine brands in Australia.
She took the leap from what many would consider a “dream job” to go off on her own and do something that was more aligned to her authentic self – what felt like her calling – and what she wanted to bring into the world.
With that, Alison founded Offline, a brand devoted to helping us remember who we really are, and connect at a deeper level with ourselves.
In this conversation, we’re talking to Alison about:
- Understanding where our motivation and validation comes from – at work, are we motivated by passion and belief – or wanting to impress our colleagues or boss – and what does that mean?
- What does it actually mean to be our “authentic self” and how can we access that
- What happens when you don’t do what’s aligned with your true purpose
- How to get into our creative headspace, how to recognize and grow from lessons that present themselves to us
