Today, I’m chatting with Luz Donahue. Luz is an accomplished abstract painter and a really accomplished Facebook ads consultant. Two topics, which, on the face of things, seem to be at odds with each other. Today, Luz shares her story of becoming an entrepreneur and how she goes about nourishing both sides of her business: one that requires great analysis and one that requires great levels of creativity.
