245 - How To Find Next Level Influences That Equal Next Level Work


“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.”

― Haruki Murakami

If you want work that feels like no one else's you need to be consuming totally different influences. You art what you eat!

Should you be influenced by your modern heroes and peers or only with your own life? I would say YES... AND MORE!

In this episode I run through my Creative Influences Pyramid and share everything I've learned about taking influence in ways that get the most powerful results in my creative practice!!
