Stephanie Campbell Brava Podcast

Episode #11 featuring author and Illustrator, Ilana Griffo, is live NOW and you can listen on Apple, Spotify, Castbox, Sticher & more. 

One of the on-going themes in Season 2 that I have noticed is the fear of the jump, the hesitancy we tend to have when taking those next steps whether it's starting a new position or starting your company. Each of the women featured on the Brava Podcast has tackled this in some way or another that I hope can inspire you on your career journey. ⁣

Again, BRAVA to these amazing women and for you listeners, you go girl.

Creating Smart Content, Taking Risks and Being Bold with Alisha Johns

Have you ever dreamt about an ideal reality, maybe you see yourself running your own company, managing your own shop or working your way up at the office but in a different department.

What’s stopping you? Fear can be the number one reason that restrains you from achieving that ultimate reality. How do we overcome that paralyzing fear that seeps into our minds telling us you can’t do it?

I think it’s about about taking risks and being bold. Today on the podcast I am honored to have Alisha Johns, the Founder and Creative Director of LISH creative. She’s an innovator and creator who has a flare for color and a passion for entrepreneurship. Today’s episode will be a discussion around creating smart content, how to take those risks and what’s needed to be bold. Listen now!

Stephanie Campbell and Alisha Johns

SHOW NOTES:

Alisha started her career at a few agencies in Pittsburgh for a small team that worked on huge projects. There, she wore a lot of hats that prepared her for owning her own business (2:32).

She works with up to 14 different contractors at one time. Alisha believes that showing appreciation and gratitude for your team is important for management. That, and knowing when to let go of control (3:34).

Trying to show that gratitude in your workplace? It can be as simple as thanking them and telling them that you appreciate them (4:38).

On delegation, Alisha focuses in what she is best at and then delegating the things she knows other will be better at (5:25).

Right now in her industry it’s all about video. She’s seen an increase in videos requested by clients and she believes that challenge will be how can brands differentiate their videos from each other (6:04).

The latest Instagram video launch, IGTV doesn’t seem to be attracting many viewers as of recent; but, we both agree that it is a good platform to direct viewers to engage in longer form content (7:10).

Alisha defines “Smart Content” as a way to get across to people that Lish Creative isn’t just taking pretty pictures. They (Lish Creative) are going to break down the brand (their client) and tie in content to their greater marketing strategy through learning about their consumer and tell their story (8:23).

Alisha’s creative process? Learning as much about the brand and their brands’ consumer as much as they can. Sometimes the brands’ product can be the most inspiration to spur creativity (9:27).

So many brands end up looking the same. Alisha challenges, “Why not break the mold!” (10:55).

Alisha recommends to chip away at your passion. She did so for 3 years to start her business and eventually leave her full-time job (13:10).

Want to start a side-hustle? Take initiative and just start it! It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s about starting and building a portfolio of work. Don’t worry about what people think! (14:25).

Welcome to the Brava Podcast!

Hi my name is Stephanie and I want to welcome you to the Brava Podcast. I’m so thrilled to have you here! I can’t wait for you to hear from the amazing women highlighted in each episode.  

The Brava Podcast serves as a catalyst of discovery and inspiration for you, the leading lady, so you can advance your own passions, generate sustainable change, and hopefully make a difference in your community no matter how big or small.

Welcome to the Brava Podcast!

So, let’s break it down. We all know the word Bravo…but Brava, what’s up with that? When I visited my family in Greece they exclaimed “Brava” Instead of Bravo and it resonated with me. It’s the feminine version of Bravo. The direct translation is “to applaud women.” And that is exactly what this Podcast is set out to do.

Each episode will feature at least one inspiring woman who is making a difference in her field and has a story to share. We’ll cover everything from careers and philosophies to wellness and finance.

That is the foundation of the Brava Podcast. It is to celebrate women and our accomplishments, normalize the success of women, and advance women through a community of our contemporaries.

Welcome to the Brava Podcacst
