Where Do You Feel Most Inspired?
Many creators, especially entrepreneurial ones, have the urge to leave the workplace so they have the creative freedom to do work they love. ‘The Entrepreneurial Dream” is about creating a place, space, and work that matters in the environment that inspires you the most.
One of the first things many people express about not liking their day job is how their work environment is uninspiring and even suffocating. They don’t connect with the cubicle (or desk) or the people around and the lack of creativity is stifling. Uninspired environments dampen the creative spirit which serve to dampen the environment further into a big loop of negativity rather than creativity.
Or, it could be that you have a great job and work environment (YAY!), but… it’s not the work you want to do. If these or any other scenario of feeling trapped in doing other than the work you long to do, you’re not alone. AND… there is something you can do about it! It’s time to push yourself to begin taking your side hustle seriously, until your side hustle can replace your job.

Willpower can only get you so far. It can be very challenging to remain a positive and creative spirit if you’re surrounded by the opposite. A freeing environment and supportive people will help you achieve both your creative success and personal happiness faster.
