CIP097: Mark McGuinness on Building A Successful Creative Career

Today’s podcast guest is someone I’ve wanted the chance to speak to even before I considered starting a podcast. Mark McGuinness of lateraction.com I think is best introduced through the words of another of my favourite authors and creativity mentors, Steven Pressfield. Here’s what Steven says about Mark:

“Mark McGuinness is a rare cat – part poet, part coach for creative professionals, part old-time, overeducated Brit who thinks deeply about stuff you and I have never heard of… a man who has lived the life and who has watched and worked intimately with hundreds of others who’ve done the same.”

How’s that for an intro? I hope you enjoy our chat as much as I did.

 

 

What we discussed:

  • How to embrace the ‘old ways’ whilst still remaining relevant
  • How to find the time and resources to work on ourselves
  • How to cultivate the courage to follow our fear
  • Mark’s advice for beginners, fresh out of college or university
