Tips, tricks + inspiration for creatives.
Inspiration seems like some magical unicorn that only graces the lucky ones.That's the way I've heard it talked about, anyway.
When I first started looking into creating my own business, it took me a few years of trial and error before I came up with a solid business idea and a plan. One of my biggest mistakes? I didn't invest enough time in research and specificity.
I'm a quote person. I love using inspirational quotes to help me push through a tough project, or just to use as a pick-me-up. I also like a good but kind of morbid quote. I feel it's the perfect mix of let's kick some ass and bigger picture.
You've got this amazing idea for a project. You're all fired up. It's the best idea you've ever had, and you're going to make it right now. You sit down (or, for some creatives, stand up), roll your shoulders, and...you're stuck.
Pursuing a career in the creative fields is tough. Since art is pretty freaking subjective, many people will probably ignore your talent and your work right off the bat. Trends come and go with the blink of an eye, and what may seem like your original idea could make someone else famous five seconds before you had a chance.
