Aree you an artist or creative? Are you ready to take your art to the next level in 2023? Today’s short episode is a bit of shock therapy to get you going and keep you going.

Art is not easy. The creative life is full of setbacks and challenges. However, if you resolve to pay the price and if you commit to showing up every day, you can achieve more than you ever thought possible. And if you commit, when you get to the end of the month, the end of the season, the end of the year, you’ll be blown away by what you have accomplished and what you have produced.

So, let’s get this done together in 2023. Listen to the full episode to get your kick in the art and to start off 2023 with a bang!



  • “Those days when…I found myself late at night wanting nothing more than to call it quits and go to bed. Well, I found one thing I wanted more than that: not giving up on myself.”
  • “Don’t tell yourself, I can’t create when I’m this tired. Don’t tell yourself, I can’t be inspired when I’m this burned out. Just show up!”
  • “Some of my best writing happened during those painful moments when I didn’t wanna do the thing I most love doing.”
