The Maestro Experience™
As You Create, You Are Created
As you create a child, you are created. As you write your book, make your movie, paint your paintings– you are created. As you launch your activist brand or your social enterprise, you are created.
The more you give the more you reveal. To yourself. To others. To the world.
It’s all there in the work. The things you have to say. Your point of view. The pain. The joy. Your talent. Your humanity.
It’s all there …
Let’s pretend for a moment that we’re at a pub. A small place, known only to the locals. Great food. The bartender knows us by name. Just a couple of friends talking about our journey as creatives.
So you grab your favorite cup of tea or perhaps a dark roast, a few fingers of bourbon. And you settle in. You don’t skip read and you don’t rush.
You’re fully present for the content on this page. You read all the words. You watch all the videos. And then you let the content wash over you.
Everything that has been said.
Your thoughts and feelings. The new ideas that came to life. The fellowship we shared. The things you’ve come to realize …
In the stillness, you can hear their whispers. The hidden forces that move you to create. It’s an odd dance. The discipline of a daily practice. The moments of inspiration. Back and forth you sway.
The highs. The lows.
Where is all this going? Curious, you chase the sparks. Doors open. Fear kicks in. Something is out there. It calls to you.
And then the spark becomes fire …
And the fire becomes a book or an activist brand; a piece of art or water wells in Kenya; a social justice documentary or a Michelin Star restaurant.
LIVE YOUR TRUTH
Whatever that looks like. You get to be you. The good, the bad, and everything in between. Own your story without apology. Be real. Embrace your imperfections. Let your true voice be heard.
STRETCH YOUR WINGS
Take some risks. Break some rules. Blaze new trails. Sure, you’ll make a mess of things, but what better way to live and learn?! Your true potential will be found off the beaten path. Become the ever curious, maverick Creator.
HONOR YOUR BROKENNESS
Acknowledge the baggage that still gets in the way. Own your fears and insecurities. Own your crazy because we all got it. Allow yourself to be human. Take off the mask! Do heartfelt, informed work. Redemption. Connection. It’s a collaborative process.
RENEW YOUR CONNECTION
To yourself. To those you love. To your life. To your work. To the things that truly feed you. Drop the armor. Embrace each moment. Stop numbing out. Live & create as a fully engaged and authentic being.
That’s the number of hours given to you each month.
How many of those hours do you spend in ways that deeply feed you? Is your creative stomach full or is it STARVING for vibrant, meaningful work?
And what of this world we share? How are you using your hours, your craft, your gifts, to make this world a better place? It’s a struggle we all face but in truth, there’s always enough time.
It’s not a forced thing, it’s an organic thing. Listen to and honor your Creative Truth. Choose vibrancy over obligation. Seek to thrive not survive. Take on new challenges. Push your creative practice to the next level. Do the things that give you energy.
Creative work is just work. But creative work that feeds you plants seeds. It becomes bigger than you, taking on a life of its own. As the work becomes more, you become more. Both as a Creator and as a human being.
UNLEASH YOUR PROCESS
Your process is the life blood of your creative practice. Double down on it! Cherish all the ways you unlock your sweet spot. They’re all a part of your proprietary process.
Your work is worthy of audacious expression. So put it out there! Get it seen.
You don’t need permission.
Do your thing.
And trust that your voice and vision will grow stronger with time. But that’s not really the point. Everything is found in the work. The more you do, the more you grow.
That’s the process.
