EP 179: Understanding Your Creative Entrepreneur Strengths
Today I’m talking with Lisa Robbin Young about creative strengths. Lisa defines what a creative entrepreneur is and helps us understand that there are many ways to be creative. She explains how she developed the creative freedom entrepreneur spectrum types–chaotic, linear, and fusion.
The chaotic entrepreneur is what we traditionally think of as a creative, and their work style is stream-of-consciousness. On the other end is linear creative, and they love systems, processes, and order. Both ends of the spectrum need a bit of the other. With those who fall on the fusion space, they are a mix of chaotic and linear.
Since this is a spectrum, sometimes people fall on the cusp of the categories. This helps us see where we lean when we’re in high-stress situations. The spectrum isn’t about being right or wrong but what aligns with you and your work. You need to do what works for you (even if it’s not what the gurus are teaching). This is how you will find success in your business.
