    4 | Pixar Story Experts On Saying Yes To Your Creative Calling

    4 | Pixar Story Experts On Saying Yes To Your Creative Calling

    What would it take for you to turn down an interview to run JJ Abrams production company? Ask Meg LeFavue, the Oscar-nominated writer of Inside Out, who had to DO this after committing to her creative calling to become a writer. Meg LeFauve and her frequent writing partner and podcast co-host Lorien McKenna BOTH get extremely candid about the challenges and essential importance of committing to your artistic path and declaring it. The power of saying: "I'm a writer" can't be overstated if you decide to take that leap.

    In addition to the importance of declaring, we discuss questions around creative time management, balancing multiple creative projects, when and how to send out drafts of your work, how to take notes, and why failure is an essential part of the creative process. We hope you enjoy!

    2 | Rissi Palmer: Be Your Own Creative Gatekeeper & Save YOURSELF

    2 | Rissi Palmer: Be Your Own Creative Gatekeeper & Save YOURSELF

    If anyone understands "creative Rock Bottom," it's Award-winning singer-songwriter Rissi Palmer. After a top-charting, well-received debut album, Rissi entered a vicious court battle with her label, leading her to bankruptcy. After the heartbreak of seeing her own music video playing in the record store at the mall across from the retail store where she was working, Rissi knew it was time to take matters into her own hands. Rissi committed to creating out loud on her OWN terms.

    Now Rissi is one of country music's most important voices, not only with her music, but her activism in the community. Her partnership with Apple Music lifts BIPOC voices in the music community through her radio show "Color Me Country."  I hope Rissi will inspire you to choose yourself lie she did me.

Need to listen again & take notes

Jen, I have been a fan of yours ever since going on retreat with you back in 2005. I hardly ever listen to podcasts, but I made a point to listen to your first one with Anne Lamott. You hit it out of the park! You ask the most interesting questions, and the dialogue between the two of you was priceless. I think I need to listen to it again so that I can take notes! Such great wisdom here. Anyone who is a writer or creative should give this a listen!
