We know it is difficult to be a “Visionary Creative, Artist, Designer, Producer, Maker, etc.” Professionally, it is a difficult path to choose. But when you feel the passion to create, most of us realize, that we don’t choose our passions. They choose us. They wrap around our hearts and attention and won't let go. And when we follow our passions our hearts sing!  We make beautiful things and feel GOOD. We make ART.


That's why being creative is a calling. Your work shares what you've learned through your journey. Creativity helps us see in new ways. It can even make us “happy”. Isn’t inventing and experiencing our creative life what we want most? Whether it’s a great meal with a great wine, art making, finding a solutions or inventing a better solution, creativity improves our process and brings better results. Think of your works as intentions to create better solutions and make our world a better place. Creativity helps us let go of our shadows, dramas, and doubts. Explore creativity in whatever you do. Amaze yourself and us as you follow your creative flow. Dance to your music. LIVE to CREATE.


Too often, we are afraid to become an “Artist” or “Creative”. Such large and lofty titles.  Something we think only others should call us only after we’ve practiced for years and earned the title and reputation of “greatness” (often, after we are dead). Real creatives, while still alive, step up to their “Creative Aspirations” and remain true to their inner calling. Creating and sharing inspiring ways of experiencing our amazing world. 


Whatever creative passions are stirring within you, it is time to act. Live your deepest integrity fired by your creative ideas. Yes, it can be uncomfortable and some would say “arrogant” or even ”selfish”.  The naysayers will claim you exaggerate your importance and abilities. Others say, “Just be comfortable, take it easy, don’t take yourself so seriously. Finding creative meaning is not that important.”  I ADVISE: DON’T LISTEN. GO FOR YOUR DREAMS...


LIVE FULLY. Follow your heart and imagination. Chase your passions. Don’t be discouraged. Let go of any myths that imply you are not good enough to embrace the “Creator” in you. Your ego may try to protect and limit you. Saying, “Don’t do it, it’s not safe”. Face these fears:


Fear of not having enough time or conviction.

Fear of not having enough money or support.

Fear of not having enough personal drive or a dynamic personality.

Fear of not having enough talent or nothing important to say or contribute.

Fear of not being smart enough or failing and being ridiculed.


Basically, it's fear of not BEING enough. But you are enough. We are ALL enough. WE must express our creative visions collectively to continue creating our more RESILIENT REALITY and COLLABORATIVE CREATIVE COMMUNITY. Let's ALL create our best evolution individually and together.


Rumi wrote, "That which you seek, also seeks you." This means that your dreams are your dreams for a reason. They want to live, to be real, to find you, just as much as you want them.

SO, NO EXCUSES, JUST BE A CREATOR doing what you LOVE!  CREATE • CONNECT • SHARE • INSPIRE… LIVE + WORK + PLAY TO CREATE  WHEN ALONE  AND TOGETHER.  CREATE WHAT YOU SEEK.  REMEMBER: Believe you will find that elusive path to independence, creativity and fulfillment. Act as catalyst, bringing together successful 'creatives' from around the globe and provide valuable philosophical and practical tools to learn, grow, and create – TOGETHER!
