Mastering Creative Anxiety

24 Lessons for Writers, Painters, Musicians, and Actors

from America’s Foremost Creativity Coach


by Eric Maisel

Writer’s block. Procrastination. Stage fright. Artistic challenges come in many forms, but in Mastering Creative Anxiety, bestselling author Eric Maisel says the common thread behind them all is creative anxiety. It’s the anxiety that, paradoxically, keeps creators from doing, completing, or starting the work they are driven toward. It can show up in a myriad of ways, including avoiding the work, declaring it not good enough, or failing to market it — and it can cripple creators for decades, even lifetimes.

Through his decades as a psychotherapist and creativity coach, Maisel has learned what sets successful creators apart. In Mastering Creative Anxiety, he shares these strategies, including stress management and how to work despite bruised egos, day jobs, and other inevitable frustrations. He also offers advice for what not to do to deal with anxiety. The twenty-four lessons he provides offer creative people of all kinds the practical guidance they need to replace the pain of not creating with the profound rewards of free artistic self-expression.

The Right-Brain Business Plan

A Creative, Visual Map for Success


by
Jennifer Lee

For most creative entrepreneurs, terms like business plan, cash flow, and balance sheet make their skin crawl. Formal business resources can intimidate budding and even seasoned creative entrepreneurs. Yet, to be business owners, it’s vital that they know where they’re going and what it takes to get there. Jennifer Lee’s The Right-Brain Business Plan helps creative types beat the odds by providing a fun, accessible, and out-of-the-box approach to business planning. Through a series of right-brain exercises, illustrated worksheets, colorful images, and inspiring success stories, readers will learn to craft a visual business plan that gets the job done yet is also visually compelling and personally inspiring. Special tools include right-brain chill pills and left-brain boosters.

“Creative entrepreneurs are vital to the growth of the new economy, and the traditional way of business planning doesn’t cut it for these right-brain thinkers,” says Lee, who made the leap from corporate America to entrepreneurship after realizing she needed to stop living her own dream on the side. “They need an approach that inspires creative thinking, freedom, authentic expression, and meaning. The Right-Brain Business Plan gives them the tools to make their vision and plan come to life in a way that’s fun, inspiring, accessible, and practical.”
