Correcting course while getting crafty with Beth McMillian

Oh So Cute Design‘s Beth McMillian didn’t think she had an artistic voice until she realized that people like art – whatever style it is – because it brings them some kind of joy. Anything that adds goodness or joy or love or beauty or hope to the world – even if it’s just within yourself – is worthwhile.

Today Beth shares her journey to starting her business and the struggle to mix art with entrepreneurship.

Beth: However you use your voice, if a piece of art, if a podcast, if a wedding invitation, bring someone joy or peace or inspiration, or any number of other good things, then that art is good. You know, that work is good, and even if the only person who gets joy out of it is me, that’s joy in the world that wasn’t there a minute ago

Dana: Welcome everyone to Hustle and Gather, a podcast by inspiring the everyday entrepreneur to take the leap. I’m Dana 

Courtney: and I’m Courtney. 

Dana: And we are two sisters who love business. On this show, we talk about the ups and downs to the hustle and the reward at the end of the journey. 

Courtney: And we know all the challenges that come with starting a business. Between operating our wedding venue, doing speaking and consulting, and starting our luxury wedding planning company, we wake up and hustle every day 

Dana: But we love what we do. And today we’re talking with Beth McMillian, founder of OH! So Cute Designs. Beth is a graphic designer, illustrator, hand letterer, doodler, painter, writer, speaker, and general merry maker.
