Nela’s Letters to creative, quirky & ambitious folks

The society we live in is not very nurturing towards creatives who are walking their own path. One thing I’ve learned in 13+ years of doing artsy stuff for a living is that it’s so much easier when you’re surrounded by people who get you.

The purpose of my letters is to offer encouragement, advice and real, honest, no-hype, no-BS talk to people who are pursuing a creative or transformational career, while also trying their best to stay healthy and sane.

  • We don’t “hustle” or abuse our bodies in the name of success.
  • We don’t give in to the manipulation or the pressure from “gurus” to earn 6 figures by next week.
  • We don’t pretend life is all glittery rainbow unicorns.
  • We don’t shy away from the difficult conversations and feelings.
  • We don’t compromise on the beauty, quality, and value of our creations.
  • We work hard, but we make it as fun & creative as humanly possible.

If you’re nodding your head right now, you’ll probably enjoy my weekly letters.

Here’s just a small selection of the kind & beautiful words people have offered in response to my letters:

“Nela,
I have to commend you and thank you for your wonderful writing!

You really are a master, you’ve put it wonderfully and truly said the most important things, and provided the best ways to solve it, without exaggerating! [...]

I see you have a great understanding of this and I’m happy that the World can hear your wisdom, you smart, talented woman!

Congratulations, and...
keep on rocking!!!”

“Hey Nela
Thank you so much for your... sanity.
I so enjoy reading your newsletter/posts.
Whenever one shows up in my inbox, I smile.”

“Thanks for your writing, I really like it. I feel like you get me. Also very good advice for actual design :)”

“Just a general thank you, for your regular newsletters. I am a person with some creative skills who feels stuck and sad. But I find your generosity with sharing your inner and outer journey inspiring and gives a small glimmer of hope. I don’t throw compliments around lightly like a lot of people do, but you truly deserve great things in this life. Your true sincerity shines through all the pitfalls of digital age confusion.”
