How can you create anything when your life is overflowing with family and life obligations? 

This is the question my guest Chidimma Jones-Mubima kept asking and which led me to stage a creating intervention.  I’ve known Chidi for years and she’s a professional, just like you, with a deep desire to create in the midst of a life that can feel overwhelming in its constant demands.  

In this episode, we take on this challenge as I coach her through the necessary steps to establish her own creative hygiene practice.  

Listen in for some of these key takeaways: 

  • There is no perfect time to create so you might as well create now
  • Routines may or may not help you
  • Consistency rather than perfection
  • Focus on building the identity before you focus on results 
  • Get it in where you can get it 
  • When all else fails just stop, drop, and create
