PODCAST SEASON 2: The Art of Listening

PODCAST SEASON 2: The Art of Listening

When I started my podcast, This Beautiful Shot is Not an Accident, I was inspired by the craft of filmmaking. . 

When we don’t think about these details, what meaning are we sharing?

When we create content just to fill spaces, will we look back one day and feel like the impact is similar to the plastic debris strewn throughout our oceans.

As we collectively produce more and more content for consumption, I thought it would be interesting to step back and reflect on the craft and how each detail impacts the work that we produce and the stories we tell.

Promoting Our Work: The Stories We Tell Ourselves

Promoting Our Work: The Stories We Tell Ourselves

The shift from creation to promotion can be tricky, especially if you do not have a team to support this effort. Recently, I had this experience with my own projects, but not for the reasons you might expect.

I have a degree in marketing, and fifteen years of experience reaching out to a broad range of people in order to get my work made. I have years of helping marketing other people’s work from enterprise software in Silicon Valley to transportation policies in Mexico City

Yet, when it comes to promoting my work and getting it seen, suddenly, my creativity went out the door. In this article I’m going to share with you how I got my creativity back and started on the path of promoting my work, and how you can get here, too.

Sharing your work with one word

Sharing your work with one word

I recently launched a free tool, called the One Word Formula, to help creative humans talk about their work.

If you sometimes feel awkward or uncertain when entering social situations, this is for you. It is a tool that will help you both feel good when you share your ideas and help you build better connections with the people you meet.

Let me tell you why this is the case.

If You’re Not Feeling Discomfort, You’re Not Moving Forward

have good news and bad news about your ability to move forward as a creative.

The good news is that you have the control to move forward. You don’t have to wait for permission, you can just take the steps needed to learn, do and share your work.

The bad news is that you have the control to move forward, but it won’t always feel good at the start. In fact, what feels good from the beginning is often avoiding the work rather than doing the work.
