Description

If you don't see the creativity that it takes to be in business then you must have your eyes closed. Think back to the Chia Pets, which is still around, and look at the creativity it took to not only come up with that but to launch it too. This is why we see so many entrepreneurs take on other things like writing books or creating merch. The creativity does not turn off...or at least we hope that it doesn't.

Joey was a guest on the #SpeakEasy Podcast with over 30 years of writing experience and some insight into what the creative process looks like. That included some tips on using it to be successful.

Joey's nuggets:

~ No matter what industry you are in, there will be a time when you have to hit the reset button (and that is okay)
~ Find the balance between extreme focus and willingness to fail
~ Getting feedback is important to the creative process
~ Don't be scared to cut some things out (Sometimes less is more)
~ There is value in having other creatives around you

Being able to give the best book, merch, course, or even speech is directly connected to some of the key things Joey shared in this episode. That creativity is valuable so it is important to protect it. Know when the advice that is being shared is not for you and be okay with being vocal about that. "No" is a complete sentence!

Joey even shared his experience with producing the award-winning independent film "Among Kings" with his brother in law. He was transparent about the shifts that he had to make after years of being on one journey that opened up more opportunities for their story.
