In this episode, I talk to Shane Rielly.
Shane is a designer, a branding expert, and regularly speaks at WordPress events. He’s the founder and co-owner of Lonely Viking, a digital agency based in South Africa with the best agency logo around.
Shane talks about the importance of branding and why you need to stop using boring corporate language in your brand just to try to fit in.
You’ll hear how having a business partner helps with staying focused and helps to get things done when you have ADHD.
We discuss why it’s ok to sometimes over-deliver with client work but that we also sometimes need to reign ourselves in and not do extra work for free when we’re hyperfocused on doing something that we love and want to carry on improving or adding to.
Shane is also a father, a husband, and a surfer. We chat briefly about the pros and cons of working from a home office when you have children at home and if you listen carefully (I probably should have edited it out) you’ll hear my two young daughters crying because they wanted to come and say hi. Don’t panic, I didn’t lock them away on their own, they’re with their Mummy!
