Think Creative

Dave is a natural at spooling up the creative juices and sharing them with everyone. When I listen to the show, I find myself thinking for a long time about what Dave has chatted about. To me, that's an indication that Dave is succeeding with getting me to think more creatively and therefore act more creatively. This show is well worth your time if you're looking to spark the part of you that wants to create.
