Leeya Jackson on the Boundaries for Boundless Creativity

See the Season 2 premiere of #BlackTea

Black Tea is back for its second season of episodes with 15 more Black women for you to get to know, starting with art director, designer and business owner Leeya Jackson. In this episode, the CEO of Noisemakers Design talks about how setting boundaries to achieve life balance doesn't get easier as an entrepreneur. She breaks down the fear, guilt and self-care that come with deciding to work for yourself. We also talk about protecting your inspiration spaces as a visually creative person. What's welcome on your Insta timeline? Then, Leeya gives us the inside POV on being in Minneapolis during the uprisings for justice for George Floyd, and how (literally and emotionally) having to work through that led to the project she's most proud of: the Black Kitchen Initiative for Heinz. Watch, enjoy and share. And look for new Black Tea episodes every other Wednesday, right here on Muse by Clio.

Black Tea is a video series that exists to make the independent voices of our fellow Black adwomen louder in the industry.
