Being Creative and a Successful Entrepreneur


“Your idea is only as good and bankable as the business behind it.”

Beate Chelette is a career coach and successful entrepreneur. She sold her creative business to Bill Gates in 2006 for millions, and says she is now devoted to "teaching the proven formulas that I still use in my successful business today."

In a section of her site, she writes about The Creative Entrepreneur:


Consciousness

Artists and Meditation


"No matter what, the first moments of my day are dedicated to breath, meditation, and silence."

Musician Bibi McGill goes on to explain why self-care and meditation are important to her:

"I am an artist and I am creative; I am a Scorpio, so I definitely have a tendency to be very emotional and all over the place.

Identity

Creative People – Mood Disorders and Misdiagnosis


“I’ve been accused of being ‘too much’ all my life. Too loud, too fast, too smart, too multi-talented, too audacious.

Writer, writing coach, teacher, and speaker Cynthia Morris continued,

“I’ve never been able to live according to that external standard of ‘just right’. Artists are often ‘too much’. It’s the job of the artist and writer to reflect what they see and feel.


Anxiety

Dealing with an emotional storm


Emotions can "strike" us in response to many events - a catastrophic illness, sudden job loss, political upheaval - and we may experience more long term "storm systems" with feelings such as chronic anxiety.

How can we respond to these kinds of strong feelings in healthy ways? It is a crucial question for physical and mental well-being, and for a successful creative life.
