Pattern of Purpose podcast episode 65 cover art

When we accept the role of entrepreneur, we also accept a certain level of uncertainty in our lives. But when we feel anxious about that uncertainty, it’s hard to stay creatively inspired. I’m sharing 8 ways you can infuse creativity into your days when it’s difficult to plan for the future—whether you’re quarantined due to COVID-19, experience an interruption to your schedule, or are facing a slow season.

On this episode, I share:

  • Why you can’t expect business as usual in unusual times,
  • The opportunities you have now that you may not have had before,
  • What I’m doing to stay engaged and inspired, and
  • How flexing your creative muscles in your home can recharge your work.


  1. Don't hold yourself to a normal schedule. This is not business as usual.
  2. If you've got client work, pour your love into it.
  3. Make your home an energizing, inspiring place to be.
  4. Create a vision board...or three.
  5. Journal. Start with this prompt: This is what my dream business looks like...
  6. Read for pleasure and for business.
  7. Create for the sake of creating.
  8. Find purpose in each day.
