[09:19] How Expressing Creativity Creates Fear

We’re all born creative. When we have a problem, we then create a solution. The thoughts that are wrestling in your head don’t really create that much fear because you’re not ashamed of what it looks, feels, sounds, or smells like. But from the moment you decide to express what you’re thinking, then it becomes this whole state of almost embarrassment or risk. Hence, the more you express your creativity, the easier it becomes, like a muscle that you have to work out. There’s something about embracing change that is directly linked to this muscle of creativity

[23:01] FRAME: How to Connect with Your Audience/Customers on a Deeper Level

    • Feelings – What are the feelings you want to evoke among your audience?
  • Related concept – What concept are you going to use that aligns with your message?
  • Aesthetics – Make yourself familiar with any template design template, and go from there. Have some consistent fonts and colors. If you’re not a designer, collect inspirational images that you can pass on to a designer and this would save them a lot of work. 
  • Message – What is the one message? Focus on just one message, otherwise, the audience is not going to remember anything.
  • Expression – How else can you express this piece of communication? (ex. Merch like t-shirts, hoodies, fridge magnets, etc.)

[49:22] Focus on Being Unforgettable

People are busy and tired of social media because there’s a lot of noise and distraction. And, so as you’re doing your messaging or communication, don’t focus on getting people’s attention anymore. Instead, focus on being unforgettable. Wrap your story and get deeper into what you want to say, giving the experience you want to give, and connecting on a deeper level.
