Harness Creativity as your Greatest Business Asset
Jen shares her journey as a creative entrepreneur and the mindset shift it took for her to thrive in business. As a former student and teacher, she addresses how traditional education was created to train employees instead of entrepreneurs. The programing in school such as conformity, obedience, punishment for mistakes, focusing on testing, etc. blocks creativity and reduces student’s capacity to take risks, be innovative, and to express themselves fully. If you’re seeking a creative life, unlearning this programming & reclaiming the power of your creativity is key. Shifting the mindset empowers creative entrepreneurs to harness their creativity to thrive in business. By leading with vision and the creative process, creative entrepreneurs are emboldened to stretch & grow into challenging areas of business that they may find less comfortable such as finance and marketing.
