Natural Harry on cooking, collaboration and (anti)consumerism.
Mar 08, 2021 Season 2 Episode 17

Hey multi-passionate peeps! Here's a chick who's notorious for turning every hobby into a jobbie and doing it pretty darn brilliantly.

Harriet Birrell, aka. Natural Harry, is a serial entrepreneur who specialises in healthy, conscious, creative businesses with heart -- and today we're quizzing her about her process.
 
Harry shares her intuitive approach to business and life, maintaining a flexible schedule that allows for creativity, evolving  projects to align with her values (even if that means shutting them down) and finding success despite 'not having a business brain'.

This open-water-swimming, tiny-house-dwelling, deliciously-self-deprecating woman is a breath of fresh air in a world of slick brands and brazen confidence. Down-to-earth all the way. 

SHOW NOTES

  • Her free range farm childhood with veggie gardens, camping trips, paddock picnics
  • Maintaining complexity in creative avenues rather than falling into simplicity
  • Never wanting to be boxed by one career choice
  • The struggle of defining what you do
  • The value of a morning routine
  • Box breathing to reset overwhelm
  • Acknowledging your future self when building your day
  • The power of self depreciation and putting your imperfections on show
  • The hypocrisy of owning a retail shop despite it being an ethical purchase
  • The value of keeping high quality things in circulation rather than perpetuating consumption
  • Not being the expert
  • Sharing her knowledge and asking others to make it their own
  • Creating her books and then using them like everyone else who buys them
  • The short termism of fulfilling ourselves with anything other than deep personal satisfaction
  • Daily habits: dry body brushing
  • Judgement: do it less!
  • Collaboration is key. Even as an entity in your own right, we need others around us to make it all come to life.
  • Tales of her three businesses
  • Living close to the ocean and surrounded by nature
  • Building community connections; how, why and what
  • Lassooing her entrepreneurial spirit
  • Taking risks by accident; finding success without a business brain
  • The bad habit of turning her hobbies into a business
  • Celebrating the wins to maintain motivation
