Welcome to the home of Structure and Flow: The Productivity Podcast for Creative Entrepreneurs. As couplepreneurs the two of us are so excited to create this together and show our passion for helping creative entrepreneurs.

Structure & Flow is the go-to podcast for artists, writers, photographers, designers, freelancers and other creative business owners looking for productivity tips, time management hacks, business systems, and better creative habits. We’re Creative Entrepreneurs ourselves and we understand, deeply, what it takes to get more done in your business AND make more Art. We also know what it’s like to be overwhelmed, unclear, and exhausted! We believe that doing more and working harder is not the solution to your productivity challenges. We believe in more creativity, more fun, and more profit!

Weekly, we share our personal stories and have engaging discussions and interviews on the topics of Productivity, Time Management, and Creativity. We have some great guests coming up!

You can subscribe on iTunes or Android, find, play, and read episodes right here, or watch the call recordings on our Youtube playlist.

We’d love to hear what you think! Post a review and some stars in iTunes (here’s how), leave us a comment in an episode’s show notes or send us an email about new guest interview ideas.
