Part of being “creative” or able to create solution/soul-ution (not just someone who has ideas but is known *for* them) or, in other words, innovating and leading in an industry comes down to what and whom you’re giving your energy to.
If you want to create anew and reinvent yourself or breathe new valuable life into an industry or part of society, you can not be a giver to the wrong people in your daily life.
Don’t confuse nice with true giving. Being nice is opening the door for someone when they’re walking out of the same building, true giving requires thought and energy from physical, emotional and spiritual bodies (not everyone will be able to receive from you — be selective so you have the bandwidth to more gracefully select and stick with the creative challenges or projects you’ll work on to better the world around you).
Most everyone deserves nice. Everyone isn’t whom you truly and fully give to.
As a creator and a natural giver, surround yourself with others who are givers (who lift mood, energy and lift YOU up) and where there’s an energy exchange that allows you both to do what you do best and let go of the rest.
Be forgiving to the people and projects who are aligned with your values, beliefs and passions — and — be forgiving of yourself for the countless times you put others first who kept showing you that your creative energy was meant to go elsewhere.
Do what grows your natural exuberance and conserve the energy that comes from it. You’ll need lots of it where you’re going.

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!
Life is good,
p.s. I’m taking on three new private clients to move from having the idea to birthing the idea. As I said above, move from having ideas to being known for them. If you’d like to hear more about the work we could do together, simply email us back and Susan will send you the daring details. xo
