What's Love Got To Do With It?
If you let love rule, then your work will come through and the people who you want to work with will come to you.
Being creative is hard. Selling your creation is hard. But when you fill yourself up with those things in your life that make you more confident, the client is going to choose you.
When I do my work, I am as focused on what I love, and that can only serve my clients and the work I do better.
Competition makes you humble, makes you better.
Believe in yourself and your creativity and what you have to offer.
Creative Adventuring: You gotta go out and do things that make you want to come back to work.
We all need to remind ourselves what love means to us, and make sure we hold onto it to carry us through.
Love is bold. It's boundless, it's brave, it's risky, it's vivid, it's bright.
We have that "adventurousness" in us as creative people - it's just figuring out how to tap into it.
Let the artist's boldness and sense of adventure trickle down to you.
Love what you do. Break out of the business side to make sure you can keep moving in your creative side.
Creative adventuring: we should all play, regardless of what it does for our clients or project.
Creative play has nothing to do with my clients, but it has everything to do with filling me up.
Let Love Rule. It should be a commandment in our daily lives. It drives you toward sticking to your conviction of what you think is right for your client.
Part of what makes any creative endeavor or business successful is the collaboration piece.
Letting Love Rule is about connecting with people. "Hey - I like what you are about, let's sit down for cocktails and find out more."
Don't be afraid to share what fills you up.
I never lose sight, that I cannot do what I do without the help, insight, collaboration, creativity, and energy of others.
Doing something beautiful doesn't have to be this ginormous, impactful thing - it can be small and intimate and kind of take you by surprise.
Emily Post probably wouldn't like that - but fuck that. If my client wants something that is different, I'm going to support it.
