Paul Laurie

Chapter Be_Paul Laurie
The first time I met Paul Laurie he was running through a venue in a grey top-hat attending to the 100s of people who had shown up for his Silver Spork Social Bacchanal event last November. I later learned that it was the emergency venue, because the warehouse where it was supposed to be had flooded. Yet you never would have guessed it, as Paul seemed very calm and collected, and definitely in his element.… CONTINUE READING

Chapter Be_Ali DeJohn_The Makerie

A friend introduced me to the Makerie when I first moved to Denver, and I was instantly intrigued by the idea. I loved that this beautiful retreat was created with the sole intention of giving people the time and space to just be creative. I truly believe that everyone is creative, some just give more time and energy to it than others. Now here was something that was saying – take the time. Take the … CONTINUE READING

What Kind of Person Do You Want to Be?

Friends School Character Video from Take One Creative on Vimeo.

Out of the mouths of babes. This video is a great reminder that younger people can teach us so much, if we take the time to listen to them. I love the fact that The Friends School has placed an importance on teaching character traits, and recognizes that fostering these behaviors, attitudes and mindsets is just as important as teaching traditional academic skills. … CONTINUE READING

Cynthia Morris

Chapter Be_Cynthia Morris

Cynthia Morris is an author, illustrator, speaker and coach who I had the pleasure of hearing speak in Denver at Creative Mornings a few months ago. Her talk really resonated with me, and I loved that she created a business, Original Impulse, around the notion of helping people connect to their creative core. She guides people who are emerging and established authors or who are trying to make their creative projects come to life. … CONTINUE READING

Leslie Clay Nowlin

Chapter Be_Leslie Clay_fab'rik_1

Leslie Clay Nowlin knew from a young age that she wanted to be her own boss and have her own business. She entered into the hospitality industry thinking that she would eventually open her own restaurant, but being in that field for just over seven years gave her experiences that helped her realize that was not her dream.

She transitioned to sales and worked for Meltwater, a company that helps businesses drive growth and … CONTINUE READING

Angela Craven Art – 365 Day Project

angelacravenart_in the studio

One of the things that I want to “be” in 2015 is creating, and as I expressed in an earlier post, There is More to Be Discovered, that involves letting go of my fear that my creations won’t be perfect. I have to be okay with the fact that as I start creating things they will be imperfect and, to be honest, most likely kind of ugly. That is a part of the … CONTINUE READING
