Get ready for a huge treat. In this episode, I am talking with Janelle Hardy — an expert in creativity and so much more. While this podcast is still new, more than any conversation I’ve had in recent years, this one with Janelle has opened my eyes and my personal understanding of myself and my creativity more than any other. If you’re a person who is wanting to use your creativity more in your life, if you’re stuck in ANY part of your life, or if you’re wondering about how creativity flows in other’s lives — this is your episode. I personally have so many realizations about my past and how to go about my future, and I hope that the lessons Janelle shares here will help you realize some of the ‘lies’ you’ve been telling yourself and working through them to a happier future.
