A classic scenario; we bring a project to a trusted friend whose opinion we believe we want. However, when their views oppose what we are looking for we immediately block their feedback.

This minisode addresses a significant question regarding this outcome of events.

Defining and communicating your expertise can be simple when you take time to reflect what you have heard clients say about your work especially as compared to other creatives. Have they mentioned your quality, your ability to make tight deadlines, your effortless communication style? Perhaps it is something you know you take extra time and care with that bothers you about other creatives. 

The point of this minisode is, not to leave that powerful piece of information in the shadows. Bring it to the light and show it for all to see the expert that you are.

By next week I want to start a food blog, submit 50 applications for my dream job, get in shape by walking 5 miles a day and still have time for family watching Netflix every night.

This was recorded in May immediately after one of my lowest moments in my dance career. After talking to or making calls to several friends I didn't feel any better. Then I tried something I had tried before, and although I laughed almost the entire way through, I was able to bring myself happiness.

If you are the kind of person who says, "the best part of my day is when work is over!" - this episode is for you.

For exceptionally positive people like me it's pretty easy to say "I love what I do" whether my day is fairly challenging or full of great things like 1,000 downloads of the podcast last month and seven 5-star reviews for my new book. However, I've noticed that this is not the case for many of my listeners and I wanted to make an episode about this in order to make your day less depressing.

Share this with any friends you may know who had a rough week.

Reviews from the Creative Calling Activity Book

For someone who has read a lot of books about business and self improvement, this is a book that stands out:

1. The entire book is infused with beautiful and inspiring artwork.
2. The ideas are solid and presented in a simple and doable format.
3. It's an action oriented book that encourages you to do things that will inspire success and creativity every day.

I'd encourage artists, writers, and entrepreneurs to pick up this quick study on creativity and success. Anyone who actually "does" this book will benefit. I love it!

The words you choose to describe yourself can serve as a mirror of how you feel about yourself and give insight to others of what to expect when they interact and work with you. In this episode, I ask a critical question about the words you use to describe yourself. I then go into detail about how the activity, taken from the Creative Calling Activity Book, will help you build your resume, write an exciting About Page description, feel better about the work you do and help you grow both personally and professionally.

Chances are if you are listening to a podcast title like Creative Calling, you probably aren't "in it for the money" when it comes to your business or side hustle. However, we can't work for free, so how do we reconcile the amount we should charge our clients without making it about the money? This episode based on the Creative Calling Activity Book will show you how.

How did I develop my portfolio to establish my style as a illustrator, read 12 books in a year, get in the shape I love and stay on track with my visions of the future? The answer is inside this episode.

The only thing I must say that I don’t like about this recording, is that I talk about this concept like it was something I have only done in the past. The truth is, I still do this, but I’ve adapted my routine to start later due to my later dancing schedule and I work on goals more closely related to working with dancers in every capacity I can find.

In the resources mentioned for this page I share books that I would follow along with to improve my drawing ability as an illustrator.
