About Emylee Williams

Emylee Williams is one of the  co founders of Think Creative Collective and spends her time focusing on styling, photography and planning.  With degrees in both fine arts photography and psychology, she brings a unique combination of skills and a unique perspective to running a creative business and blog.  My favorite thing about Emylee is her obvious dedication to her blog readers, her customers and her business partner.

If you asked me, I would describe Emylee as fun, ambitious and persistent.  But luckily, you don’t have to count on me to be right about that.  You can read more about Emylee here.

Emylee, what is the one question you wish someone would have asked you, but no one ever did? And what’s the answer to that question?

Question: Are you ready to change the scope of what you write about based on what your audience wants instead of just what you want to write about?

Answer: I think that is one of the biggest reasons why most blogs fails is because they do not listen to what their audience wants. Not the audience they wish they had or the audience they think they have, but the audience that’s actually showing up.

This is something that we’ve been working on being better at and it’s a struggle sometimes. We like to think that there’s no reason to blog if it’s not exactly what you want to write about, but the at the end of the day if our mission is to educate and empower people to be successful small biz owners then we need to align our content with that.

What book have you read recently that you wish you would have (or could have) read twenty years ago?

This has nothing to do with business, but I recently read “The Estrogen Alternative” and “Taking Charge of Your Fertility” and it changed my life. We miss out on so much education and just knowing what our bodies can do in the current school system and everyday family talk. These books opened my eyes to what actually happens in our bodies, alternatives to medications with bad side effects and a general idea of how to listen to my body better. These books would have helped me tremendously 20 years ago and as we were struggling to get pregnant for years recently.

What is the most meaningful project you have done and why?

This one is really difficult to answer. My most meaningful project is defined by every email we get from our students and tribe members that gives me goosebumps. The emails about how their business lives are changed because of something we created or about how they have the confidence to put in their notice and run their passion as a business because of a webinar or blog post. Whatever we did to impact someone that immensely is the best project I’ve ever done.

If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do?

I wish I were invisible almost every day, ha! True Introvert here. I would just go about my normal every day life, but knowing that no one could see me (or talk to me!) would be heaven.

What is the unlikely or surprising interest that engages your curiosity?

As a Psychology minor I guess it’s not that surprising, but I love love chatting about the actual reasons why we do the things we do. Natalie of Rising Tide Society gave an amazing talk on Neuroscience and how it plays into branding, customer relations, selling and more. I was fascinated and could nerd out on that stuff all day.
