‘Beyond being a personal aspiration, creativity becomes a successful professional criteria: the World Economic Forum predicts that, until 2020, creativity will be on the 3rd place in the top abilities needed to have success professionally. The other ones being the ability to resolve complex problems and critical thinking. It is an ability almost directly connected with entrepreneurship.

In over two decades of work in the creative industries, five years in entrepreneurship and hundreds of conversations and books, I have learnt that: firstly, creativity is like a muscle that needs to be trained. Secondly, creativity does not exist without vulnerability. And thirdly, any creative act must be fueled by an authentic personal need to do that something, independent from what the world says or what is considered to be wise or productive.’ (andreearosca.ro)
