E118 – The Key to Creativity: Celebrating Small Victories | with Nir Bashan

Nir Bashan is the CEO and founder of Creator Mindset, and he’s spent years working with Hollywood actors and big-name musicians, from Woody Harrelson to Rod Stewart. Throughout all his experiences working with highly successful, creative people, Nir has discovered one important (and possibly shocking) thing: they aren’t all that different from you and me! The only thing that sets these people apart is that they’ve established a repeatable creative process that works for them, and anyone can do the same for themselves in order to tap into their innate creativity.


Creativity is an important part of any career, and tapping into your creative side will open endless doors for your business. It’s easier than you may think, too. In this episode, Nir explains the “how” of creativity: paying attention to small victories, shifting your mindset, and realizing the creative potential within you.
