I'm all for creativity–it is the centerpiece of my life. As a writer, I've had to cultivate ways to be creative and stay creative on a regular basis. This includes nurturing ideas, putting them on paper, and developing them into finished pieces, whether those finished pieces are paid work for clients or passion projects for myself. My creativity extends to other areas of my life, too, such as my love of knitting, of arranging (and rearranging) my home, and gardening.
Lately I've been thinking a lot about creativity. Actually, I always think a lot about creativity, as I coach clients and students to be able to access it with ease on a regular basis. But I've been pondering it more deeply as I move toward putting together a true online information business (Ebooks, teleclasses, and coaching, oh my!).
And what I've realized is that most of my work around creativity is very purpose driven. I teach and promote creativity with a purpose–whether that purpose is a book you want to write, a skirt you want to sew, or a painting you want to paint. Don't get me wrong–creativity for its own sake is wonderful. But there are lots of great folks talking about and teaching that kind of creativity. My niche is helping people who need to be creative for a reason blast blocks and get down to it.
I've got a lot of ideas and plans for this niche, so stay tuned. Better yet, subscribe to my newsletter to make sure you stay up to date.
