In this episode, Channa and Meg sat down for a chat with Izzy, a writer, and creative entrepreneur as she shares how music influences her creativity through her blog, self-published book, and business. Our 7th episode covered stories as music fans, musings on life transitions, and navigating pivots while trailblazing the path towards one’s alignment. Izzy shares her journey of starting a music and photography blog while being a contributing writer for an online media outlet, Philippine Concerts. 

She has grown it to become a creative business to help content creators monetize their blogs.
