    Time for a break

    Time for a break

    I have tried hard to get a new episode put together over the past couple of weeks, with everything going on in the World it has proven to be too hard and not as important as everything we are having to deal with.

    I have decided to take a break as we should be focusing on what's going on around us, so I am using this time to take a break and plan out the direction for next season. I have some new ideas and this gives me time to explore them.

    Stay safe, we will talk again soon.

    Thank you + Teaching is hard

    Thank you + Teaching is hard

    Firstly, a follow up to the previous episode and a thank you to everyone that reached out.

    Teaching people is hard, figuring out how to break down complicated topics to something that as many as possible will understand at all skill levels is almost an art to its self.

    Here are a few thoughts and tips on trying to get it right. Spoiler, it all starts with understanding your audience!

    The struggle is real but brutal honesty does help

    The struggle is real but brutal honesty does help

    In this episode, I share some thoughts on where I am at right now in particular with this podcast. There are times we just have to tell ourselves that doing something because you like to do it is good enough.

    Giving and receiving feedback is important

    Giving and receiving feedback is important

    Why getting and giving feedback is important. I do not mean just clicking that thumbs up or down, or +1 on something. I'm talking about telling someone why you are doing it, what it is you liked or what you thought was not so great.

    We owe it to people to tell them what we thought of it if there is a system in place to do so.

    Plus, you can only improve if you get feedback.

    I'll talk about all this and more.

    Please rate and review this podcast, it really helps

    Suggestions for creative projects whilst stuck at home

    Suggestions for creative projects whilst stuck at home

    You are probably stuck in a building like me and so many others. Well, that does not mean we have to give up on projects. Here are 5 suggestions you can try whilst at home.

    1. Invent a project that you can do at home, for example document what it is like to be at home. Maybe set up a mini studio for photography or painting.

    2. Practice using your equipment, whatever it maybe. Learn settings or maybe play round with tools you normally avoid.

    3. Revisit old projects, I bet if you look hard enough there is something you can work on.

    4. Play around with old equipment you never use anymore, I have a few old cameras around the house that I can power up, maybe you have some old brushes or pens you no longer use and could start working with again.

    5. Just go with the flow, pick something you would normally avoid and try it. Maybe try a new skill like drawing or painting, who knows what could come from just throwing out the rule book and doing something different.

    Why not support this podcast by buying me a coffee, I really would appreciate it and give you a shout out in a future episode.
