Colorful Creatives: The Millennial Adventurer

I can hardly believe it’s November already! A crisp fall day is absolutely my favorite, but as usual the Chicago weather has been unpredictable to say the least. This year felt as if we jumped right from summer to winter. Hopefully some beautiful autumn days lay ahead of us. Through this amazing journey of starting my own design business, one of the best things that has come out of it is meeting new people! It’s no secret that I love talking business, especially when I meet someone who is just as energetic as I am. I love supporting other young entrepreneurs in all creative fields.

Recently I met an young woman living her fiercest life. Liz Moorman, founder of The Millennial Adventurer, an inspirational blog to help fellow millennial’s pursue their passion and motivate them to live their best lives. We sat down and talked about how she became an entrepreneur, what keeps her motivated, and some of the biggest challenges of being a business owner. I hope you enjoy learning more about Liz and follow her on social media!

1. How did you get started with The Millennial Adventurer?

I just started. I know it sounds so simple and uncomplicated, but I had been dreaming of creating a business where all my biggest strengths came to play. This idea of helping other millennial’s learn how to be themselves and live their fiercest life through their purpose is so fulfilling that I can’t wait to see where it goes!

2. Did you always know you wanted to be an entrepreneur?

I always had a sixth sense of entrepreneurship. I had always seen myself as a business owner and running my own company. It has taken a while to get a clear vision of what I was wanting to create, but it is finally falling into place.

3. Do you work a day job or are you full time on your business?

I am currently still doing both- working a full time job, plus part time job, plus creating and maintaining my business. I am hoping that next year allows me to go full time into my business.

4. What is your favorite & least favorite “hat” to wear as a business owner?

My favorite is the organizer! I love organizing, planning, and just owning it! My least favorite is keeping up with social media and making myself present with it.

5. What are some of the biggest challenges you’ve had to overcome with owning your own business?

Honestly, knowing that I am enough and knowing that I deserve the success coming my way. I have always struggled with self-love and self-empowerment. My biggest challenges are always mentality.

6. How do you stay motivated?

Remembering my why, and realizing that this life I am working towards is better for myself, but also for everyone else around me as well.
