In this episode I talk with Keith Martin-Smith, award-winning author, professional writer, kung fu teacher, and zen priest. We explore Keith’s journey in becoming a full time writer. We discuss how we can cultivate feeling comfortable with being uncomfortable in our own creative process and taking leaps, and how we can transform rejection into our best work. So, kick back, relax and enjoy a writer’s journey with Keith!
Enrich your entrepreneurial life as you explore:
- Going beyond living on the periphery of your career dreams
- Transforming rejection and feedback into creative depth
- Embracing feeling uncomfortable
- And how “no pain, no gain” isn’t the answer
- Calling on the support of your friends and community
