184 - Challenge Everything!!

What do you do when something's broken? You take it apart. 

I think we all have a deep sense that EVERYTHING is broken right now and because of that we are deconstructing EVERYTHING!!

For this reason, this year's 99u conference theme of "Challenging Everything" felt VERY APPROPRIATE to me. 

In this episode I want to share the breakthroughs I had while at 99u this past month and how they've impacted my outlook in my day to day creative career and my big picture perspective as a person.

In this episode we will talk about the power of writing your own rules, how admitting you don't know everything is the first step of breaking new ground and unlock the secrets of the cosmos!!! haha... not really... but kinda ;)


This week's show is a very special edition of Creative Pep Talk because it was made in partnership with Adobe! They brought me out to their 99u Conference in NYC and this episode is all about what I learned while I was there.
