How have your creative juices been flowing this past week everyone? Any triumphs to share--big or small? This past week I've been fine-tuning my work process and exercising compassion for myself in growing my work one little step at a time. As an ENFP, I'm great at dreaming up a million ideas in a day.

Here's your Monday Maker Motivator to help you hone in on your creative passions and see them through.
