Some of the most interesting and inspiring stories I’ve heard are about people’s creative journeys and what they’ve learned along the way. The world needs to hear more of those stories, so I’m going to bring them to you in the Follow Your Curiosity podcast.
Once a month, you’ll get a new interview where we delve into one person’s creative journey. Some of these folks will be better known than others, but they’ll all hold up a mirror to the importance of creative endeavor in every life. You’ll hear something you can use every time.
You’ll also get a call-in episode every month where I work with someone who’s feeling stuck. We’ll talk about their situation and you'll hear the steps we develop to help them through it—and you can call in yourself if you like!
Every episode will be posted right here in addition to your usual podcast sources, and you can join the conversation on Instagram. I can’t wait for you to join us as we Follow Your Curiosity!
If you’d like to contact me with a guest idea or to be featured on a coaching call, please email me. I’d love to hear from you!
