Your Creative Push
About This Show

Each artist opens up to YOU, revealing the things that hold THEM back on a daily basis, and how they FIGHT THROUGH IT. They then give you one final push, in an attempt to motivate you to start doing work as soon as the episode is over.

Do creative types need daily inspiration?
My first thought was- maybe not. I am a painter, my husband is a writer. We both have full time jobs, and was interested to see what's new with this new podcast. Curiously enough, the good mix of guests so far has made me wonder... do we need daily inspiration? I still think not, but this is a podcast I would like to catch up with every once in a while to see what the guests have to share.
