086 - If Your Work Isn't Working

Is your work good enough to slay the creative career dragon you have your sights set on?

Sometimes in our creative careers we hit a glass ceiling and we can't get any further. The problem is that everything that got us here, won't take us any further.

In this episode we talk about the fundamentals to great creative work, and how to improve each component. With all components firing at full capacity, your work will become a powerful tool that can break any career ceiling!
