Saying "Yes" to Interviews – Helpful tips for those just starting out


“You are a true renaissance woman, skilled in all the visually artistic endeavors required for modern successful branding. How did you get here? Did it start with a crayon, a camera, a computer? What sparked you?” -Abby of JORD Watches


That was by far one of my favorite questions I’ve answered in a handful of recent interviews. During the last month or so, I’ve challenged myself to say “yes” to any interview that was presented to me. I’m not one who likes being the center of attention, but it’s been an amazing experience and it got me thinking inward a bit. I’ve been able to connect with so many like-minded creatives and companies that I wouldn’t have otherwise. I also loved the variety of questions asked and loved when a question caught me off guard. If you’re interested and following along, you can stop by all the interviews via the links below. Thank you to all the gals/companies who hosted me on their space.

    1. Thanks Audrey. It definitely helps that these interviews were conducted through the internet. Face to face stuff is definitely more challenging. Thanks for stopping by and reading 🙂

  1. As an avid interview-reader, I can say that you are the ultimate interviewee (as Angel said above). I read all the interviews linked above and have left feeling inspired.

    1. Thanks so much for your sweet comments Alyssa. I don’t interview often so I always feel a bit awkward. Good to hear the information shared was inspiring 🙂

  2. Loved reading all those interviews, especially when questions become more specific. Definitely encouraging for starting freelancers, but in the end, i think it’s pretty much about your own path, your own trial and errors and your own process. Still love to hear about how you made it happen though ! 🙂

  3. I can’t wait to read the other interviews! You’re a great subject, Cassie – it’s so fun to get to follow along on your journey!
