Are you a creative? Are you a designer, artist, musician, illustrator, painter, filmmaker, photographer, writer, craftsperson? Are you working on side projects or pushing full steam ahead with your latest creative idea? If so then you’ll understand the challenges faced by creative people – where to get inspiration, how to stay motivated, how not to lose focus on your goals, how not to be sidetracked, etc.
