Doing Creative Business The Creative Way: Tools for Creative Entrepreneurs

I offer a variety of tools and learning resources for those who want to do creative business the creative way. Creative Business The Creative Way: Go Creative!

The workshops take place on the 3rd Tuesday of each month online at 7pm London time (Facebook Live Video) but the advice is timeless and you can catch up with the replays anytime. Conventional business advice often feels too mechanical and one-dimensional for creatives. Based on the principles and practices outlined in the Go Creative! in Business books, these monthly…

Your Monday Motivator: The Creativist Club is Open

What are you creating this week? For me, it’s all about the Creativist Club and I’m pleased to declare that, if not yet officially open to all, we are now admitting our first intake of followers and friends. What about you? What are you making of yourself this week? Each Monday I send a reminder email to creatives and creativists around the world. The pull of the outer, conventional world is strong, with ever more distractions being put our way, so we all need reminding about how necessary it is to turn inwards, and focus on creating what we most truly want. Which…

Walk Up To The Go Creative! Show Episode 15: Milestones & Turning Points: Your Creative & Creativist History

This week the show is all about going back to look at your history with your “significant something”, whatever it is you most want to make. Sondra Turnbull, Moderator of The Creativist Club Studio, has stepped forward to say her creative intention is to make more money while doing what she loves. And we’re going to take Sondra through the same process offered to each member of the club. On Sunday, we set the scene for the pre-intention phase, by looking back at Sondra’s money history: her parent’s relationship with money and her own milestones and turning points. And then we set her off to…

Walk Up To The Go Creative! Show Episode 14: The Principles of Conscious Creation

This week the show is all about the principles of conscious creation. As many of you know, I’m working on the Creativist Club with moderator Sondra Turnbull and over the coming weeks, we are going to be talking you through the process of what happens as somebody takes a creative intention through the process of conscious creation, as supported by the club. Sondra’s going to be bringing her own intention through the process, for us all to observe and learn from. On Sunday, to set the scene, I’m talking about setting good intentions, diving deep, honing focus, going public, turning…

How To Turn Failure Into Creative Failure: The Go Creative! Show Episode 13

“Try, fail, try again, fail better.” Samuel Beckett’s advice is the topic of today’s show. Yes we all fail but it’s what we do with the fail that counts. In this week’s show, I share two of my recent “fails” – each of which warranted a different response – and how I dealt with them. And look at how to turn our response to failure away from doubt or despair to making it work as part of the process. And we also have Sondra, Creativist Club Studio Moderator, dropping by to get some more answers to your questions about the…
