The Type A Creative
About This Show
What is the Type A Creative? I'm so glad you asked!
The Type A Creative is a podcast for driven creatives.
For a long time, when I thought of the word “artist” I usually thought of a painter — someone floaty and magical, absorbed in their own world of art.
But, I’m not like that. Yes, I’m a writer and designer. But I’ve got a business brain and some monster-sized ambition to match. For years I’ve been running a business and building a career around my creative skills. But now, I’m also working to cultivate a creative practice that's not necessarily for sale, for a client, or to fulfill some ambition. I'm out to have some "creativity for keeps."
As driven people, we often have a hard time believing this kind of creativity is "worth it." We sneakily talk ourselves into thinking it has to turn into a business, otherwise, it's indulgent, or simply not worth our time.
I'm looking for a bit of inner peace between my driven entrepreneur and my inner artist. My question for myself, and hopefully all of you is, "How do we balance a life where we want BOTH? Both creativity and art, but also big career goals?"
In this podcast, I talk to people who are starting new creative projects, have thriving creative projects, and have conversations with a rotating cast of my smart friends — from fellow bosses to creative directors and working writers, filmmakers, and artist.
Together we have conversations about what it is to be both Type A and creative.Read more »

You can balance spreadsheets just as easily as you can design a logo. Sometimes it’s a little disorienting because you’re a left-brain / right-brain blend that doesn’t always fit into the labels of “artist” or “numbers person.” On the show we bring in fellow bosses, painters, creative directors, film makers, entrepreneurs, and writers — together we’re having conversations about what it is to be both Type A and Creative.
