Have you heard of CreativeLive? It’s a website with live and recorded classes on a very wide variety of subjects of interest to creatives. They also have an interesting blog.

I don’t talk about it near often enough.

Next year, CreativeLive turns 10! It was started in 2009 by Chase Jarvis and Craig Swanson. Part of their central philosophy is that there is a creator in everyone. Essentially agreeing with my primary key to creativity: Everyone is creative.

They’ve been highlighted in Entrepreneur Magazine, ABC News, GeekWire, Inc., and Mashable, just to name a few.

Categories for their courses include:

  • Photo & Video
  • Craft & Maker
  • Money & Life
  • Art & Design
  • Music & Audio

Upcoming classes this week include:

  • Introduction to Paper Marbling
  • Posing 101: Essentials
  • How to Make Money
  • Craft Photography Fundamentals
  • Introduction to Adobe Stock

And many more.

Some of their instructors include:

  • Mel Robbins
  • Tara Swiger
  • Lindsay Adler
  • Mike Johnson

I could keep going.

I really don’t know how to tell you how valuable a resource Creative Live is. All I can really do is to encourage you to go and check it out, if you haven’t already.

There’s a reason I’m telling you about this right now. Close to Christmas.

Give yourself, or someone you love, the gift of creativity for Christmas. Gift yourself/them a class from CreativeLive.

What to Do When You’re Not Motivated

I was listening to YouTube videos last night as I was doing other things that didn’t require a lot of attention. Carrie Green, founder of Female Entrepreneur Association and author of She Means Business, caught my full attention when she mentioned entrepreneurs as creative people. (I agree, by the way.) Because of that, I thought I would share this with you.

 

Two Links

I’m going to do something I don’t usually do. I’m going to send you to other sites to read/listen to what I want to talk about. These links will open in a new tab or window, depending on how you have your browser set.

First, I have a guest blog up on Tierra Wilson’s Busy & Chic blog. It’s Why Entrepreneurs Should Start a Writing Practice.

Second, I mentioned I’ve started a podcast. It’s Wandering on the Creative Path and it’s on SoundCloud. Honestly, I don’t know if it’s going to stay on SoundCloud, so if you have any free podcast hosting suggestions, send them my way. Anyway, episodes 0 (the introduction) through 3 have been uploaded.
