Advice and Resources for Success as a Creative Professional

This week, we talked about some of the joys — and pitfalls — of the professional creative life.

Your friends don’t get what you do, sometimes you don’t completely “get it” yourself — but when it’s working, the rewards can be glorious.

On Monday, Stefanie Flaxman explored the peculiar (and sometimes hard to understand) nature of creative work. If you’ve ever struggled with the idea of making a career out of something you do because you love it, this one will be food for thought.

On Tuesday, Stefanie returned with some advice on how to get that messy, complex, creative work into our schedules, so we can produce solid work reliably.

And on Wednesday, I talked about how writers use our creative mojo to build content environments that support business objectives — particularly that “scary” one — making a sale.

Over on Copyblogger FM, I had some thoughts for writers on getting paid what we’re worth. Because getting paid makes the whole “creative professionalism” thing way more fun.

On the Site Success podcast (previously called Sites), Jerod Morris helped us with one of the most important elements for success online — understanding specifically who your site is designed to serve.

And on The Digital Entrepreneur, Sean Jackson and Katy Katz interviewed Ross Simmonds, who asks some tough questions about Google AMP. It’s been much-hyped — but is it worth your time?

Enjoy all the content, and we’ll catch you next week!
