Why do I do what I do?

My goals are kind of big and maybe crazy.

I want to help create a world where people are taught from the beginning (though children already know) how to be positively creative, and how valuable that is! I want to help people recognize their creative power, so they can use it to better the world and create better lives for themselves and their loved ones. I want to help people truly innovate, instead of following the old models our society has built.

Why am I so focused on creativity? This isn’t just about artists. I believe we are ALL creative beings, and that true creativity is our natural state. When we get in touch with this our lives are completely transformed. I have examined the roots of all kinds of challenges people face, and I’ve decided that helping people with creativity is where my energy can have the biggest impact...

When we all learn how to use our creative power for good, the world changes completely. With true creativity we can solve any problem. We don’t have to pursue destructive careers or hurt others, because we know we have the power to create all that we need. We have the power to create value in this world. We can be happier and more fulfilled, which makes us healthier and more capable of helping people without depriving ourselves.

When you boil it down, this is simply about authenticity. Being free to be ourselves, whether that’s a performance artist or scientist or something completely undefinable. I believe we should be able to be ourselves without fearing repercussions like poverty, discrimination, or ridicule. I believe we should be rewarded for our individuality. I believe our biggest gifts to the world lie in the ways that we are unique.

So that is my challenge. How do I help people find their authentic selves and their unique paths to success? The key, of course, is in creativity.

It may look like I’m trying to help people make money with their art, but it’s bigger than that.

How can I help you be you, so we can all be us, and make the world a better place?
