Ask a writer, painter, copywriter, designer or musician if they’re a “creative” and you’ll get a resounding yes.
But what about an entrepreneur? Or a banker, doctor, lawyer or accountant? What about the business affairs or account managers in a creative agency, are they creatives? How about a tradesperson, like a plumber, carpenter, electrician or roofer?
Do these folks self-identify as creatives?
Does it depend on who they are and how they do their work?
I’m fascinated by how we label ourselves and others when it comes to creativity, and what impact that labeling has on the work we’re willing to do and risks we’re willing to take.
Would love your thoughts on this:
1. What do you do?
2. Do you self-identify as an entrepreneur?
3. Do you self-identify as a creative?
4. Are there certain roles or jobs that are just plain non-creative?
5. Or is it more about the individual and what they bring to these roles and jobs?
Feel free to copy and past the above and share your insights and answers in the comments…
