What does it take to design a life prioritizing meaningful creative work while maintaining a sense of security, wellness, and connection?
The drastic transformations going on in the creative and cultural economy today are unprecedented and overwhelming.
Entire domains and skill sets become essential and irrelevant within shorter time frames.
Formal degrees and credentialing are losing their value exponentially across creative fields.
So how are we supposed to build a viable, balanced, creative life in this environment? How do we survive and thrive within this constantly shifting and unpredictable landscape?
Recognize that there is no singular solution.
There is no five-step plan, no mastery of life goals, no tried and true formula for navigating the current landscape, and no map to guaranteed success.
This may sound discouraging initially, but it is a huge opportunity (especially for creatives).
The key is to not only recognize the pace of change but also embrace it.
If there is no singular correct way to build a personal and professional life focused on creative work, we get to design our own.
We get to leverage our intense passion for creativity and generous connection to others into opportunities for growth and financial security without asking permission from anyone but those we serve.
There are so many opportunities! An infinite number of opportunities….
