Living a creative life is amazing, but it often is in conflict with the business side of things when you are trying to parlay that creativity into a career. My 30th book released last month. You'd think I'd have figured out a way to meld the two sides of my creative life. The bottom line is that it's always a challenge to meld the two. This is why two creative friends and I began what is called a ‘mastermind group’. We did this in order to have accountability, not necessarily for our work product, but more for our intentions around our work, whatever that looks like for each of us. It has been a powerful tool in my writing life.
