The creative process is one of the most significant challenges you will face as a creative. Whether you’re a writer, designer, or web developer, you will regularly face the pressure of creating something new.
For many years, I suppressed my dream of being a writer. I made every excuse imaginable to stay in my comfort zone. But before I could break through my self-imposed limitations, I had to listen to my life to know exactly what I was fighting.
Many people I talk to ask me how they can make a living doing the work they love to do. They are enthusiastic, skilled at their craft, and passionate about what they do. So they’re normally surprised when I tell them they need more than passion and skills to succeed.
Living a “successful” life isn’t what it’s all cracked up to be. We often believe if we have more money, recognition, or significant achievements, then we will feel satisfied. But I can tell you from personal experience, this isn’t the case at all.

Today, there are many podcasts vying for the ears of listeners. But there are practical things you can do to help your podcast stand out among the crowded airways.
