I hate that question. I mean, I love that question, but I hate that question. Mostly, I hate it because I could never quite narrow it down. I had a different answer every week, when I was young enough to be asked that question.
When I went off to college, I still couldn’t decide. I wanted to be an actor, a graphic designer, a musician, and a special effects artist. Or maybe a director. Or a writer! Ooh, squirrel!!
All the while, the pressure being put on me from well-intentioned outside forces to “pick one”.
Now, since then, I’ve learned it’s best to pick one at a TIME, but thanks to my experience with C. Dennis Moore and Midwest Creativity Coaching and one 90-minute phone call, I don’t have to pick one overall.
I run Snout Productions (www.snoutproductions.org), and we do it all. We make and release films, music, prose, visual art, and anything else the muse drives us to create and release. We did our due diligence in the beginning by simply EXISTING, in a market that typically demands specialization. We’ve put a few things out now, and I found myself at a crossroads. What next? Where to put my immediate attention for the next week? The next month? Where to start?
This is where what I now consider to be the key ingredient of Midwest Creativity Coaching came into play. The system Dennis set me up on was custom-tailored for my needs. We can do the same for you. The positives of this set up are two-fold, and one of them I actually didn’t expect –
1. I’m infinitely more productive (which I DID expect and hope for)
2. I am actually LESS BUSY( which I didn’t see coming). I’ll say that one again for the folks in the nosebleeds,
‘I AM ACTUALLY LESS BUSY.’
And that doesn’t mean I’m taking on less projects. Quite the opposite in fact. At this moment I have a one act play, two short films, two albums (going on three), and a book in various stages of production. I’m not stressing about any of them, I’m excited about all of them, and thanks to this new system, none of these projects are getting the short shrift.
I know what you’re thinking, “What’s the secret???” Well, that’s where scheduling the free consult call comes in. We won’t know YOUR secret, until we talk to YOU.
Take it from someone who’s been in the trenches a while; you need to get organized. If you are on this website, feel free to click on “contact us”, and end your search there. You won’t need to go anywhere else. And if you doubt my sincerity because I‘ve gone from client to consultant, consider the entire reason I work for this company is because of what it did for me.
I trust you’ll make the right decision for yourself.
