The path to becoming an ArtistCEO (ArtistCEO 1.1)

An ArtistCEO is someone who is multi-passionate, trying to balance both business and artistic pursuits. In ArtistCEO podcast, we follow the journey of one woman trying to make business and art live in harmony.

When host Kerri Lowe met our protagonist Shannon DeJong, she was keeping her artistic life and her business life totally separate, even going by two different names.

But the two women thought there might be another way…a way to live a more integrated life – to not have to hide art from business, or the businessperson from the artist.

In Episode 1, we meet Shannon and start to get a glimpse of her wacky, poetic, sometimes brutally honest audio diaries as she tries to live an integrated ArtistCEO life. You’ll also dive into the back story of how someone becomes an ArtistCEO in the first place.

From choosing a college major, to getting the first internship, leaving jobs, making art, traveling internationally and finally, almost by accident, starting a brand agency.
