Creative Genius

There’s something about working in a creative field that leaves many people feeling wistful. They want to pursue a creative endeavor, but daily responsibilities and fear of failure get in the way. Learn tools to self-motivate, banish detrimental phrases such as “I can’t” and “what if” while on the path toward launching a creative business and moving purposefully toward a more fulfilling and balanced life. Even individuals who don’t currently work in artistic fields will find their creative spark and develop the self-belief and tools to make their business and personal life flourish.

Instructor: Margery Walshaw founded Evatopia, a multi-media company with divisions supporting literary management, publishing and digital media. Her clients have sold scripts to Hollywood and books worldwide as well as launched successful businesses in the creative arts.
