Fear and the Art of Creation

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Sunday 13th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Ever wonder what keeps so many people from launching a new endeavor or scaling a creative venture into something exponentially more impactful? More often than not, the answer isn't a lack of ideas, money, a team or a plan...it's far more primal. The answer is fear. Instead of brainstorming new ideas, in this session you will discover how to move from ideation to action, overcome the three greatest fears that hold creatives, artists and entrepreneurs back, and find a more stable path to success.

LEVEL: Beginner
