In episode 103, I had the opportunity to interview another amazing designer and beloved POP Alumnus, Laurie Sprague. Laurie’s story is really unique in that she shares her experience moving from Newfoundland and leaving her established design business behind to starting over from scratch in a new city! Laurie has a really great perspective – instead of seeing her move as a setback, she saw it as an opportunity to clean her slate and establish a new process that worked for her new life.
