Investing in Creativity & Curiosity During Times of Crisis

I’m so glad to be able to do this podcast right now. It means so much to be able to chew through some of these difficult things that are going around in our head as we all deal with the effects of the Coronavirus.
If you are an artist or creative or a visionary or a leader in any capacity right now, I think today’s episode will be especially valuable for you. Andrea and I talked about how important it is to stay connected to our creativity and our curiosity and our hope for a new world as we continue to stay present compassionate and empathetic during this period of time.
And if you know somebody who’s creative and is in this space of making art for the world, and perhaps especially if they’re struggling with that right now, definitely share this episode with them.
