Looking forward to this conversation with +Kelly Mitchell today at 4pm PT!  One of my favorite #FireMeUp11  session focuses is helping clients UNCOVER CLARITY IN CHAOS, getting them "unstuck", and finally moving forward - which fits in nicely with today's topic:

Episode #52: Creative Invention

Every so often things get stale. Every feel like your stuck in a rut? Ready to get unstuck?  Sometimes it's your look, sometimes it's your message, and sometimes it simply because you've been doing the same thing far too long.

This episode is about the inspiration of change, the attack of reinvention, when you take what you have, flip it, spin it or transform it in to something FRESH and Motivating...

Kell and I plan to share ideas on where to begin the process, how to know when you are on the right track and how to articulate your message.

The latest #BreveTV episode is UP!  
"The Idea Lab: Adventures in Creativity"
http://brevetv.com/theidealab-adventuresincreativity-51/

Getting creative and setting the stage for creativity is not rocket science, but it’s important to create an environment that inspires creativity.  +Kelly Mitchell and I talk about how getting in your creative zone can influence your work, your ability to innovate, and improve your outlook on your business and personal life.  We also share ideas on how to get you there, including: embracing your imagination (remember building forts when you were a kid?), changing your mental landscape (go for a walk… get outside!), and looking outside your industry for inspiration.

We hope you enjoy our personal stories and the fun banter back and forth in this episode!

Some specific resources we shared:

~Kelly’s new FAVE creativity sparking app:  The Brainstormer
~Debra’s “Collaborative” Spotify Playlist: Writer’s Soundtrack
~Book that inspired Debra’s morning ritual… and Pinterest visualization project: The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod

What do YOU do to get into a creative zone?

We look forward to seeing your ideas, questions and comments in the #BreveTV stream.

I was confirming my next d11 "enterpriser" interview today... and was inspired to revisit this post!

"FIRE UP Your Blog Without Burning Out" shares tips and tricks on infusing a variety of personalities and perspectives... without you having to do the writing! How is THAT for a fun #FireMeUp reminder?! (I also share some insider info on how I put my interviews together!)

Mini excerpt... think about this:
"*You can be the FABULOUS opportunity knocking on someone's door!*  Asking business heroes and key influencers (aka Your Dream Guest Blogger Team) to write a guest post for you is a fantastic reason to connect and build relationships with them. It also throws the doors of possibility WIDE open! You never know where these conversations may lead. Imagine how wonderful it would be if they turned into a mentor relationship, business opportunity, or new friendship… with someone you truly admire."

pssst... Have you defined your WHY? Take a moment and enjoy some #sundayinspiration  in my latest #FireMeUp11 post! 

The mission of this post is to inspire you to take action, get closer (and reach) clarity around your “why”…

YOUR mission, should you choose to accept it, is simple. In honor of SPRING, take some time this weekend…. pour yourself a cup of coffee, tea, or a velvety glass of wine… find a sunny spot… and ask yourself these Five Questions to FIRE YOU UP… and get you closer to your WHY!

1. What conversations set my soul on fire?
2. What activities do I get *passionately lost in*… and loose track of time?
