They had a deeply personal conversation on a range of topics. From Robyn's love and appreciation of Kanye to her self-described “messy” career path, graduating high school early and teaching herself design by imitating album covers she loved in Photoshop. Robyn embraces and actually strives to be uncomfortable. Using it as a fuel for her writing and design.
In this episode, you will learn that it’s ok to be messy. Not in the organization sense, but messy in the decisions and mistakes you make. None of us are unique or special in our struggles. Once you embrace who you are and feel comfortable with your voice it will transform your work.
