In this episode we talk about:
- How long you might need to start something big
- Kickstarter, and how Katarina set up her campaign to launch her magazine
- Recognizing which things you need to sprint on, and which things you need to have more of a marathon mentally
- Managing unexpected new things — like starting a family!
- Knowing which deadlines you can keep + which ones you can push
- Practical things you can do to keep you sane if you’re working + doing lots of things + have a family
- How to transitions in between all of the parts of your life while running a big project
Katarina Kovacevic is the founder and editor of RUBY, an online destination for women.
In her past, Katarina has been a writer-for-hire, a copywriting professional and content strategist. Her freelance writing has appeared in Destination Weddings & Honeymoons, USA Today, American Spa, Sunset and online at T+L.com and Fodors.com.
In April 2013, she founded RUBY, a website that publishes smart women-centric content with a mission to promote female camaraderie, support sisterhood and inspire women to make a difference in the world.
When she’s not leveraging her skills as a trained journalist and digital media expert, she’s a wife and mom on a mission to lead a simpler, more purposeful life.
I thought she would be a wonderful person to have come by the show to talk about her work as a freelance writer and her process of launching a magazine. I thought she could share more of what it’s been like to start a new big project, while still doing the freelance hustle.
