When was the last time you asked for what you truly wanted?
Directly, boldly, clearly. Without guilt or apology?
"It never hurts to ask,” was the phrase that Lindsay Pruitt of @madetothrive heard frequently while growing up in California. “My entire life has been centered on that philosophy. The willingness to ask for what I want has put me in so many fun situations and fueled me to push forward in a lot of different realms. If you don’t ask, you will never hear that yes you are looking for!”
A wildly successful WordPress developer and entrepreneur, Lindsay has heard yes from hundreds of delighted clients and collaborators, but it hasn’t always been that way. “At first it was hard to cultivate relationships. I had to do a lot of cold emails. I faced a lot of rejection. But, it also led to some big yeses that wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t reached out to make the connections.” How much you put out there is how much you are going to get back.” -Volume IV, now available for pre-order
It was this very philosophy that motivated us to ask Lindsay if she’d be interested in collaborating on a set of Creativity Cards that guide readers through the creative process. Each set includes nine proven practices that will help you eliminate distraction, counteract self-doubt, deepen connection, and enhance creative confidence -- no matter your focus, profession, or current season in life.
