Eleazar Ruiz is a graphic designer, writer, and entrepreneur. I was introduced to Eleazar’s work by a listener, and I’m so grateful for that connection. Eleazar and I got together in person on a sunny summer day at my studio in Seattle. I really appreciated my time with Eleazar, so much so that I commissioned him shortly after to create the first artwork for this podcast. So you’re likely already familier with his work.
As you’ll hear in the interview, Eleazar has a heart for people, and he’s done some work to build a career that fits him. I was inspired by his story, and I hope you will be too.
Blythe Hill is the founder of an international movement that raises awareness of sex trafficking and supports the work of anti-trafficking and aftercare organizations.
So often we learn about global problems and feel powerless to do anything about them. I love how Blythe’s work offers a way for anyone to help— for anyone to give their time, energy — to take what you have, by way of interests and opportunities, and put it to work for something big in the world.
She’s taking a problem that can feel far away, and offering an invitation to become part of the solution.
I left this conversation feeling inspired and encouraged. I’m so grateful for the work she does, and that she’s the one leading her organization
