Full Episode Details

When most people think about creative minds, they recall world-renown artists, novelists, architects and so on. However, what you might not realize is that social pros are creatives too. It takes a lot of creative thinking to produce and publish great posts and come up with effective marketing strategies that can propel a brand’s growth.

But, can creativity be taught? Or, is it something that only the Leonardo da Vinci’s and Steven Spielberg’s of the world are born with? Jill Paider is an award-winning photographer and creative director. She has published 21 books and believes that inspiration fuels creativity.

The only problem is that if you are a creative, inspiration isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity. You have to learn how to spark inspiration to keep doing the work that you love. You can’t wake up one morning and procrastinate because you weren’t feeling inspired. You’ve got to train your brain to fire on the cylinders and keep the creative juices flowing no matter what.
