Consumer to Creator: Get over your self-doubt and start making stuff

Do you wish you could design graphics, write stories, paint imaginary scenes, draw comics, develop games, compose soundtracks, or craft costumes, but you’re worried that you’re not talented enough? Do you fear that it’s too late to start? Many artists become famous in their early life, but did you know that Bram Stoker was 50 years old when “Dracula” was published?

What is it about the creative urge that just won’t let us rest? And more importantly, how can we get over ourselves and finally act on it?

In this talk we’ll cover:

  • Misconceptions about “talent” and why it matters less than you might think.
  • Examples of people who have succeeded in their creative career in their 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and even 90s.
  • 4 steps to get started creating.
  • How this mysterious phenomenon of creativity connects us with a long-lasting lineage that is far greater than any of us can even grasp.
