EP 02: From ideation to creation with Anna Dunleavy

Posted on May 31, 2024 by Sarah Robertson

Welcome to the Brand Seasons podcast. In the first of my guest conversations, I chat with creative business coach and wedding photographer Anna Dunleavy about taking our plans from ideation to creation.

Together, we dig into:

  • the season of sowing, which forms part of my Brand Seasons method
  • taking the first steps towards our goals and plans
  • creating a podcast and our fears of public speaking
  • keeping ideas to ourselves to preserve their energy vs releasing them into the wild
  • harnessing the power of movement and nature to support our creativity

We also touch on generating ideas, and Anna shares her thoughts on getting moving and being outdoors in supporting cognitive and creative functioning and processing.

Learn more about Anna’s work as a creative business coach and view her wedding photography portfolio and services. You can also find her on Instagram and Substack.

I’m excited to publish a bonus article in collaboration with Anna, where we go deeper into our love of vision boarding, so look out for that on my Brand Seasons publication. You might like to subscribe and upgrade to receive these bonus posts.

This season of the podcast is sponsored by Saorsa Psychology.

In Gaelic, Saorsa means ‘freedom’—serving as a beacon for those eager to amplify their impact in the world, in a grounded and gentle way.

Freedom lies in being bold, and if you’re looking for deeper meaning, you can carve your own path with a combination of coaching and psychology, where you’ll be guided through the wood, the trees and the spaces in between.

To learn more about how you can create space to think, do and be, visit Saorsa Psychology.
