Navigating the Messy Middle

Today I have a quick tip for you – in the spirit of sharing what works for me. Because I turn to this trick often during the messy middle stages of big creative projects. And this week I found it extremely helpful in recharging my creative energy with a new project that I’m bringing to life behind the scenes. (More on that particular offering coming soon – I think you’re going to love it! 😍) In the meantime, here’s my tip for inspiring a creative boost when you’re in the middle of a big project, or you feel you’ve hit a creative slump. You’ll also see how I am living proof of this fun quirky tip. I hope it works its magic for you, too!
