Creative Intentions Week 49 2019

Are you looking forward to the creative week ahead? Below I map my creative intentions for week 44 2019, under the three hats a creative entrepreneur must wear in these digital days: that of Maker (who produces), Manager (who processes) and Maximizer (who promotes).

Join us here, in our private facebook group, to map your creative week with other authors and creatives.

Each Sunday we outline our creative intentions to each other. And then we follow up on a Friday with what we’ve actually accomplished during the week.

We also support and motivate each other, and the maps and logs help to hold each other accountable.

There are lots of creative accountability groups on Facebook, what’s unique about ours is that our report is given under those three creative hats.
