What if you measured your wealth based on how creative you are, not how much money you make? This month, we’ll be focusing on acknowledging, expressing, and cultivating our “creative capital” – the intrinsic assets you have to dream, design, and develop new ideas! Here are four of our favorite strategies as you start exploring and enhancing your creative capital.
This summer, instead of experiencing travel FOMO and thinking of all the places you’re not, let’s embrace our reality and explore where we are right now. Sometimes, we simply need to create more space to explore where we already are instead of going somewhere new. This is the true test of exploration – to be where you are and still find the adventure!
There is so much in our world that is novel, strange, and stimulating. Yet, our day-to-day lives often resemble more of a mundane routine than an epic adventure. We get stuck in our task lists and obligations, instead of creating moments of awe, wonder, and excitement. Instead, learn how to SPARK your own curiosity!
If you are guilty of structuring your days around task completion and the ever-elusive “to do” list, only to feel like there’s never “enough” time in the day to get it all done, then you’re not alone…
When do you choose efficiency over sufficiency? Too often, the busyness of doing overtakes the thoughtfulness of being. Here are three ways you can choose to focus on sufficiency and invite more self-acceptance into your life.
When you work for yourself, determining your worth is complex and can often feel rather lonely and isolating. For most, it can feel really uncomfortable to ask for a large amount of money for something you’ve created. Especially when your brand is yourself – like so many coaches, visual artists, freelancers, consultants, and creatives – it almost feels too personal to put a number on your services, like you’re judging yourself before others have a chance to judge you. Learn how to have the courage to OWN your worth!
It was less than a month after the birth of my second baby and I already knew we had to do something.
I needed this space and community as much as these other parents who were vocalizing their desires on social media. So instead of waiting for someone else to create it, we decided to build on this vision and open it ourselves. And that’s how The Makers Place™ was born (I say “born” because it now feels like my third child).
Each month, we feature a specific value that we highlight throughout the community for parents and their children through writing, art, workshops, action challenges, and more to help identify personal strengths, values, and goals. This blog is our public space to share about each value we explore as a community. We invite you to join our dialogue to deepen your personal reflection and practice!
