In Stacey’s Voice
“Creativity for me is that state when you’re effortlessly coming up with ideas.”
“There’s so much creativity in entrepreneurship, in living our lives, in problem solving.”
“Starting a business while having a two year old took a lot of creativity!”
“A gratitude list is easy the first week. Then you run out of things to be grateful for. It forced me to dig deeper. I realized I’m grateful I can always find a solution - it’s a skill I’ve always had.”
“Creativity is not reliant on skill. I can enjoy the exercise of doing something creative.”
“For me it’s about creating a foundational structure that allows me to semi-reliably become creative and share things worth sharing.”
“On days when I’m not feeling creative, I can lean back on days when I was and just use that.”
“Almost no one is clever and creative on demand.”
“The plan, organizing, structure, and system were not there to contain me but to support me!”
“Building out that initial structure of here’s what I’m saying, who I’m talking to, what I have to tell them, allows me to then come in with a certain perspective.”
“You’re probably already using systems in your life and really love them. Just apply that!”
