263 - Are You Missing These Crucial Clues to Your Next Breakthrough?

EDo you feel like you’re following all the right advice, but still not getting anywhere? Often this is because you’re missing one key part of the equation: TIME Strategy is ALWAYS dependent on TIMING and understanding and reading the signs of the time you’re currently within is CRUCIAL to real creative breakthrough. In this episode I chat with my good friend Chris Graham about how to integrate timing into your strategy by picking up on the crucial clues that are hidden right under your nose! We dive deep into lots of tactical thinking, as well as look at my Creative Side Quest theories from many new angles. THIS WAS A GREAT CHAT!

262 - Feeling Hopeless and Lost in Your Work? Maybe It's Time For This

I have been working so so so hard on an episode. Getting up early and writing for hours. Recording and rerecording. AND… This is not that episode. Why? Because I needed to let that episode go. THIS episode is a response to the power that was released by loosening my grasp. This episode is a checklist that will help you get in touch with the obvious opportunities in your path that you’re missing, see hidden paths you’ve been blind to - that have been begging for more attention and how you can have new breakthroughs if you’ll be willing to let go of old ones. This episode is stripped back and straight from my heart, hope it hits home for you friends!

261 - Artists with Super Fandoms Have This Surprising Thing in Common

The difference between bad art and good art is probably skill, but what's the difference between GOOD art and GREAT art? Often the quality of art is the same between artists with a super following and artists with a meager fanbase, so what’s the secret? I was desperate to figure this out. So I started to study my creative heroes and those with really diehard super fandoms, and I came across a pattern that I’d never noticed. In this episode I want to share that insight with you and the 5 ways you can use it in your work for max effect!
