Getting out of your comfort zone. Thinking outside the box. Making a leap of faith.
These timeworn cliches that describe taking risks might make you recoil in discomfort or laugh out loud, but the actions they imply are often second nature to creative people.
Creativity is all about experimentation, trying something new, and giving yourself permission to fail if necessary. Moving beyond the idea stage to action is not easy, and even the most gifted artists, designers, and entrepreneurs will tangle with self doubt.
On our new podcast Creative Risk we’re going to explore the stories of creative people that, against the odds, make it happen. These are people who travel great distances to seize opportunities, make personal sacrifices to create bigger futures for themselves, and have the courage, grit, and determination to see their dreams become reality.
How do they do it? Where do they get the inspiration to take risks despite their own insecurities, the skeptics on the sidelines, and an increasingly unpredictable world? Let’s dive into these questions together! Our first episode is coming soon; get ready for it and subscribe on Spotify:
