If you are feeling stuck and not sure how to turn things around, distract yourself and feed your creativity at the same time. I once had a job I loved for five years and then my entire job description reverted back to the worst job I have ever had. So I immersed myself in the world of antique/vintage clothing in 1988 and it still remains my creative escape and my fun adventure, not to mention another entrepreneurial endeavor. I spent that year feeding my creativity by displaying, marketing and hunting up new antique clothing items which kept me positive and looking forward until I eventually found the exact job I was looking for and loved. You can't move forward if all of your creative energy is eaten up just surviving. How are you feeding your creativity?

We are lining up some great venues for our
IDEAS Networks this fall. These networks build understanding, appreciation and expertise in creative thinking and process and are dedicated to creating a ‘space’ for identifying common opportunities and solving challenges.
We are still seeking more organizations to host or sponsor events. Both benefit by exposure as champions for innovation and gaining new ideas and insights for their organization. To become an IDEAS Network host/sponsor e-mail Ladi Terry

SUCCESS WORK! BLOG: "CREATIVITY SPARKS INNOVATION"
Here in Bloomington we are surrounded by innovative products and practices and the arts. Even though innovation and creativity are household terms there still isn't a good understanding of the creative process it takes to get you there. I don't know about you, but I am no Mozart or Einstein. Some are just born an inventor, renowned scientist, artist, performer, business guru or financial wizard. Thankfully the rest of us can learn from the creative thinking steps that these highly successful individuals use to arrive at innovation. Once you have learned these steps they can be easily replicated and applied to your own professional and personal everyday challenges (Read More)
