The Get Up & Get Out Podcast w/ Steve Krisel

Episode 23: Zhenya & Vlada - Talk about the struggles of being a local, being an outsider, finding your purpose and building an online business

August 10, 2020



'There is no such thing as the "Starving Artists"! It's all a myth and I want to show you how you can live within this creative society, that we have today.'

On today's special episode, we have Zhenya and Vlada. These two as a couple are a miracle in their own'll have to listen to understand what I mean. 

Zhenya and Vlada run an online business and are the founders of House of Creators, which help digital artists build an online business around their art, and for that, they have a mentorship program. They have also built a community where artists know they can come and get advice on how to build, expand, and run a successful online business around their art.

I ask some deep and personal questions and both Zhenya and Vlada come back with some really great answers!

Questions like: 

1. What do you consider one of your biggest strengths?

2. How do you want to contribute to the world?

3. What do you want to be known for?

4. What difficulties did you encounter with starting a business in Germany?

5. What is it like to work with your wife? What's the best and toughest part of working together? 

6. What advice would you give your 20-year-old self?

Discover the answers to these questions and more in today's brand-spanking-new episode filled with at least one good joke from Steve (and at least one bad one)!!!
