Lean In

The creative process – e.g. making something for a company – is often uncomfortable.

It means putting yourself out there – showing yourself, revealing yourself. It can really feel vulnerable.

And yet, it’s also the path to fulfillment, effectiveness, and liberation. It – creativity – is what it means to be human.

So lean in to the discomfort.

Don’t hide. Unleash your creative power.

You are worthy of it.

Don’t fight that, recognize it and make a plan.”
