Episode 344: Because You Want To

Show Notes

Why are you doing what you do? Writing what you write? Creating what you create? Vicky asked herself this recently and realised she wasn’t enjoying herself. Tune in this week and listen to Vicky and Joe talk about creativity, different types of intelligence, the reasons we do the things we do, and why we should be feeding our souls as well as our bank accounts.

Key Points

  • [1:45] Vicky is feeling a bit flat lately. 
  • [3:15] What’s the whole point? 
  • [6:40] The online marketing space is very unoriginal. Everyone is just following the other person. 
  • [10:00] As creators, business owners, writers, we’re sort of ‘forced’ to create content for lead generation purposes instead of fun purposes.
  • [17:20] Vicky has just been struggling with creativity lately. 
  • [19:00] Write more fun stuff! Don’t worry about it being productive. 
  • [20:55] Vicky is reading a mountain of books this week! 
  • [23:15] Do something this week just because you want to! Just go and have fun!
