Recently, Chase Jarvis had a conversation with one of our favorite Grey folks, Tina Roth Eisenberg.

Do yourself a favor and watch the full 70 minutes. In the meantime, here are some of our favorite parts:

Do what you love

Chase: How do you know when you love what you do?

Tina: If you never have to think “do I want to do this?” I know it sounds so cheesy, but my personal life and my work – it’s all a blur. And that to me is a sign that I’ve found my sweet spot.

Chase: I understand the idea of keeping your life separate from your work – I feel that what you just described is the picture that my life is as well – my work, my professional, my life is all wound into one thing. I think that a lot of people are looking for courage to put a stake in the ground and say, I’m not actually happy in this job that I’m doing.

…and teach your kids the same

Tina goes on to tell a story about when she asked her 8 year old daughter if she knows what her mom does at work all day.

“Yeah, you sit at your computer and you laugh.”

So Tina said, do you mean that I like what I do? Her daughter, looked at her seriously annoyed and said, “Yeah, isn’t that the whole point?”

    In college, I believed that designing for a company was what I was meant to do. Having that 9 to 5 job that creates a routine in my life, thinking that from there, I will have a work and life balance. However, once I got involved with this routine, I found and continue to find that I am looking for more. Constantly searching for a separate creative outlet to fuel my internal energy. Looking to get involved with projects that give meaning and value to my life, something that is greater than myself, something that benefits others. If I am involved in a creative environment by title, why am I searching, more than ever, for something seperate ?

    • That’s a great point, Theresa, and really speaks to the side hustle culture many people in our community have. It’s always exciting to be working on your own project. A lot of times these projects even turn in to your career when you add your talents into the mix.
