How To Pitch Influencers: Make It Mechanical

One of the most rapid and reliable ways to grow our creative business is to pitch other influencers with great ideas and content. And the most rapid and reliable way to pitch influencers is to make it mechanical. Influencers are those who work in the same niche or micro-niche as us, who have larger or different audiences. Among consumers, trust in advertising is at an all-time low but working with trusted influencers brings the trust their followers have in them to us. Successful creative business often relies more on these networks of relationships than on conventional forms of advertising. It can be immensely rewarding, creatively…

This Week’s Create Date: Park Walking

On Saturdays, I write about my create-dates (one of the recommended Go Creative! flow practices, a date with yourself, doing something that feels totally like fun). This week I spent my create date park walking. And taking some photos of the beautiful autumn day. As a create-date, it was utterly restorative and I also (bonus!) got a short poem from it. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.     Create Date Park Walking. A New Poem Park Walking In the falling of the day I think I must take a walk in the falling of the leaves in beloved…

Why Creative Entrepreneurs Need Three Kinds of Creative Practice

There are three kinds of creative practice for creative entrepreneurs and to make a living doing what you love, you’ll need to understand and practice them all.  It’s not a small goal, what you want to do: turn your passion into sufficient profit to make a living. And so it will ask some big asks of you. You’ll have to grow and stretch and transform. You’ll have to work well, play well and rest well. You’ll have to learn new things, experiment and explore, try and fail and try again until you get it right. You’ll have to put yourself out there in ways that…

Create Date at St Benedict’s B&B St Leonards On Sea

The create-date is a core creative practice, a most-fun-you-can-imagine weekly expedition, doing something that excites or delights you. This week, it’s soaking in the atmosphere at St Benedict’s B&B, St Leonards. I’m down in St Leonards for a night with The Daughter, staying at one of the most amazing B&Bs I’ve ever been in. Owned by Paul Oxborrow and his partner, Stephen Groves, St Benedicts is crammed with Victorian artefacts and furniture, collected from antique fairs and junk shops, mingled with Christian and other religious statues and pictures. In an interview in an interiors magazine, Stephen described his house as “a traditional home in…

The Mechanics of Creative Intelligence.

The all round genius, mathematician, physicist, engineer and philosopher, Henri Poincaré (1854 – 1912), wrote with scientific precision about how creative intelligence works: “I left Caen, where I was then living, to go on a geologic excursion [and…] the changes of travel made me forget my mathematical work. “Having reached Coutances, we entered an omnibus to go some place or other. At the moment when I put my foot on the step the idea came to me, without anything in my former thoughts seeming to have paved the way for it, that the transformations
