Adele shares her unique journey as a nomadic entrepreneur, delving into the evolution of her creative agency over the past 12 years. She talks about her passion for design and collaboration, emphasizing her journey from freelance work to establishing a successful agency.

Adele's path is anything but conventional. From her early days inspired by her artist father, through her adventures in Alaska running sled dogs, to her current nomadic lifestyle, Adele's story is one of embracing the unknown with tenacity and vision. She highlights the importance of minimalism and systems in her life, allowing her to focus on creativity, relationships, and nature.

"You have to create systems and then you have to leave room for those systems."

The conversation touches on various aspects of her business, including the shift to e-learning, her approach to design, and the transition to providing comprehensive services to clients. Adele's passion for teaching and empowering others shines through as she discusses her "done with you" service model, aiming to help clients build their branding and marketing funnels.

"Collaboration is my jam. I love having a design team."

"I can never imagine selling [my agency] or even getting out of it just because it's so close to who I am as a person."

"You have to create systems and then you have to leave room for those systems."

"The unknown is more embraceable than we think, and especially for women."

"I am not a man, so I don't know what it's like for a guy. But so many times I tell people about Alaska and they're like, oh, I couldn't do that. That's their immediate response. And I'm like, but you could, like that's a thing."
