I often refer to myself as a ‘Creative’. To me, a Creative is someone who creates art in some way. A lot of the time, I use the term to refer to someone in the visual arts such as photography, videography, art, music, literature etc but of course, anyone can be a Creative!

This new series is all about discussing being a Creative and how to make creating your career. I am a firm believer in your passions being your paycheck and so, with some help from some professionals, I hope to equip you with the tools to make that a possibility!

Of course, I am not claiming to be an expert or anything of the sort! I am someone who has always pursued a career in my passion of online content creation. My desire is to help other people walk the road to their passions – there’s enough space for us to all succeed.  I am also currently working in recruitment, so will be bringing some insight from there too. So please share these posts with any of your Creative friends.


 What is a Creative? Creatives are…

C – Courageous

Creatives are audacious because we are brave enough to see the world differently. We see the world through our art. We tackle issues by thinking creatively. We create answers, we do not dwell on problems.

R – Radical

Creatives are intense, passionate people. We do not do anything passively and leniently. We go hard. To normal people it may seem like we are over the top, but that is only because we believe it is important.

E – Elegant

Creatives are graceful. We believe in stylish work. Clean-looking work. We aspire to present ourselves and our creations professionally.

A – Ambitious

Creatives think big. We have dreams and goals and we work towards them. Our creations will reach the world.

T – Tenacious

Creatives find strength in their creations. We use that strength to keep going, even when it gets hard. We are determined people. We hold on to our ambitions and bounce back when we are pushed.

I – Ingenious

Creative do not stop. We do not allow lack of certain things, like money, resources, contacts and time to stop us. We use what we have to create what we want. We are not afraid of a few late nights.

V – Vigilant

Creatives are alert, sober-minded people. We are observant and attentive. Our eyes stay wide open, ready to leap at our next opportunity to showcase our creations.

E – Empowered/ing

Creatives are the personification of motivation. The process of creating motivated them to keep creating. And their creations motivate others to create also.

S – Skilful

Creatives are brilliant. We rejoice at situations where we can better ourselves and improve our skills. We jump at opportunities to learn more and to continue to sculpt our craft.
