In one of the most popular classes at Parsons School of Design, B. Jeffrey Madoff gave students a reality check: "Most of us have had the feeling of 'I could've done that,' whether at an art gallery, watching a performance, or finding a new product or even a new business idea. What's the difference between you and them? They actually did it. You didn't." With Creative Careers, you will learn how to do it, too: use your creativity; have a sustainable, profitable career; and do what you love.
Creative Careers pulls from interviews with more than forty experts--notable entrepreneurs, artists, and business leaders--as well as from Madoff's own decades of experience to supercharge your career. Creativity can often feel sporadic and unfocused, coming in bursts and peaks. That's why Madoff focuses your professional path by asking vital questions that will ultimately help you:
- Determine your value
- Be smart about your hustle
- Ruthlessly edit down your creative projects
- Overcome fear and doubt
- Create a successful, long-lasting career on your own terms
