What you will learn
● How to live a creative life
● We can take influence from what’s around us that impacts our life and business.
● What does creative work involve? A lot of creative work is clearing space, creating a space in which things can come forth rather than you trying to push something into being you're actually making the space so that things can appear.
● We all have a creative self within us, and when time & space meet it to flourish.
