There are times our creative pursuits and goals overshadow why we create in the first place.
We get swept up in the idea of success and forget that it’s just as important to recognize what it is we’re creating and adding to the world.
Worst of all, there are times when we forget to enjoy the act of creating itself.
In this episode of the Keep Creating podcast, we talk to Brad Montague, a New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and the award-winning creative force behind Kid President.
Brad’s work has garnered millions of views, been translated into numerous languages, and caught the attention of celebrities like Tom Hanks and Beyonce.
Brad’s upcoming book, “Becoming Better Grown Ups: Remembering What Matters and How to Fly” searches for what it means to live a good life through interviews with both children and adults. It’s due out April 7th, 2020.
Brad and his wife run Montague Workshops, a creative agency on a mission to tell stories that cultivate empathy and imagination in kids and former kids. Through their work, the Montagues “strive to joyfully rebel against the way things are and attempt to create the world as it should be.”
We caught up with Brad at this year’s STORY conference and discussed how creatives can ensure their work enriches both their lives and the lives of those around them.
