I’ve always been a creative person.
On the “not-thinking-outside-the-lines-of-creativity approach,” I can’t draw worth beans, but I have an image in my head of what I want the final product to look like and can verbally express it. That’s why as owner of an advertising agency for 20 years, I was the creative director and copywriter but not the designer.
I feel that my creativity always seeps into every aspect of my life, from how I make a meal, to how I set a table, to how I create an event, to how I engage in personal relationships. Many people don’t realize that creativity fuels business, even if it isn’t a traditional “creative” business. All business people can benefit from creativity, what it imparts to their business and how it enhances their life.
My good friend Jenifer Novack Landers is a creativity and business expert. She’s a business life coach, painter and muralist, author, owner of mindful coloring box, and generally an awesome woman whom I greatly admire. She recently wrote a blog today on the connection between creativity and motivation and I thought you might like to check it out. Click on the image below and let me know what you think.
