173 - Find Your Place (Creative Career Path Series Pt 3)

When it comes to your creative career, do you ever feel lost and confused, wandering in a metaphorical desert? In my experience, making progress in your creative career can feel random, haphazard and lonely, but I don't think it has to be this way.

In this episode, we tap into the power of finding where you fit in the industry (your market) and how to then, and only then, stand out (your niche).

I personally return to these ideas on a very regular basis and they never cease to give me clarity and direction in my creative career, and I hope they do the same for you!
