I look for inspiration for three main areas of my work: the creative design side of things, the organizational type-A list building side, and the entrepreneurial side.
I want you to leave this post understanding that it’s a normal part of the creative process to need that inspiration to create, and it’s great if you find the activities that are able to give you the inspiration you crave.
