What is the Type A Creative? I'm so glad you asked!

The Type A Creative is a podcast for driven creatives.

For a long time, when I thought of the word “artist” I usually thought of a painter — someone floaty and magical, absorbed in their own world of art.

But, I’m not like that. Yes, I’m a writer and designer. But I’ve got a business brain and some monster-sized ambition to match. For years I’ve been running a business and building a career around my creative skills. But now, I’m also working to cultivate a creative practice that's not necessarily for sale, for a client, or to fulfill some ambition. I'm out to have some "creativity for keeps."

As driven people, we often have a hard time believing this kind of creativity is "worth it." We sneakily talk ourselves into thinking it has to turn into a business, otherwise, it's indulgent, or simply not worth our time.

I'm looking for a bit of inner peace between my driven entrepreneur and my inner artist. My question for myself, and hopefully all of you is, "How do we balance a life where we want BOTH? Both creativity and art, but also big career goals?"

In this podcast, I talk to people who are starting new creative projects, have thriving creative projects, and have conversations with a rotating cast of my smart friends — from fellow bosses to creative directors and working writers, filmmakers, and artist.

Together we have conversations about what it is to be both Type A and creative.

The perfect blend of "right" and "left" brain

I actually kind of hate the "right brain" "left brain" thing, since people take it so literally, and the truth is we all use both sides of our brains in everything we do, BUT it's a great metaphor, and Jenni Brown exemplifies the metaphor beautifully in this podcast. Many of us are BOTH fully creative, AND driven, "Type A" types, and The Type A Creative fills a need for us, with great information and conversations. Beautifully produced (of course!), thoughtful, and engaging. Win, win, win!
