Hey Creator: A Mix Tape for the Creative Class
You’re bored. The world is full of derivative, unoriginal, uninteresting work—and you’re worried that you might be part of the problem.
I get it. You’re tempted to give in, give up, or just plain walk away. But don’t. Please don’t. We need you now more than ever.
We need your gift, your passion, your frustration. We need you to show up in this hour and let your angst meet a world that has had enough of the same old thing. . Let’s dream. Let’s imagine. Let’s re-shape the world together.
“Hey Creator” is a publication and podcast for people who are tired of boring and ready for interesting.
Each week, we’ll send you updates on what’s new in the world of creative work, what you need to thrive in the Creator Economy, and a few pieces of inspiration and practical application. I’ll also share my own journey so you know for sure: we’re in this together.
You can read the email newsletter by subscribing below, and I hope you’ll check out the podcast, too. Hey, Creator! is a digital mix tape for the creative class. Think of it as a curated collection of all the best stuff my team and I can find on art, writing, creative entrepreneurship, and how to help your ideas spread.
