Too often we think about the creative process as separate from the marketing process. Instead, view them as the same. Replace the inclination to “promote” with the desire to share and engage. How and why you create is a story — and your best asset to truly engage people.
Be the Gateway shows you how to use that gift with joy
and with confidence.
Something I have been thinking a lot about this month is the word “threshold.” With my book coming out and the upcoming birth of my second child in April, I feel like everything I do is moving through a threshold. A moment where things will be different than they were before.
Most people are apprehensive of change. With change comes uncertainty, and at times, risk. This month I have been embracing the idea of moving through the threshold. Of welcoming what comes next.
When my first son was born back in 2010, I had just left my corporate job to start my company. Much like today, it was a massive threshold to move through, and one that I am so thankful I embraced.
What threshold would you like to move through? How can you shift your perspective from being apprehensive about it, to approaching it with vigor and openness?
