From Fulfilling Expectations to Creating Your Career with Eleazar Ruiz

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.

It all felt too good to be true.

But it wasn’t. It was really that good!  For a while…

The Psychology of Regret and How to Overcome It

Someone asked me the other day if there’s anything I wish I would have known before starting the Meaning Movement.

That’s a tough question to answer. If she’d asked if there are things I would have done differently, I would have had quite a list:

  • I would invest in a good plugin to run opt-ins sooner.
  • I would have started asking people who are making it work online for help sooner.

Which is exactly what we always have to do.
