The Biggest Takeaways From This Year's CREATE + CULTIVATE

So what is CREATE + CULTIVATE? CREATE + CULTIVATE is a traveling creative summit with speakers and workshops hosted by top bloggers, influencers, industry thought leaders and artisans. This weekend I was fortunate to experience this incredible and inspiring summit for the first time. To say that I am feeling motivated would be an understatement.

There were so many brilliant moments. Below I've rounded up a few of my favorite quotes from the speakers at CREATE + CULTIVATE:

  1. OBSESSION WILL TAKE YOU FROM ONE DAY TO THE NEXT. YOUR PASSION AND WORK ETHIC ARE EQUALLY PART OF THAT RECIPE FOR SUCCESS.

  2. IT'S NEVER QUALITY OVER QUANTITY, YOU HAVE TO DO BOTH.

  3. JUST START, START SOMETHING.

  4. USE 5% OF YOUR TIME TO DO SOMETHING YOU'RE REALLY PASSIONATE ABOUT.

  5. TRYING TO GET 500K ON INSTAGRAM, IS NOT A BUSINESS PLAN.

  6. IF YOU'RE PASSIONATE ABOUT SOMETHING, JUST DO IT.

  7. WHAT IS GOING TO PROPEL YOU FORWARD IS WHAT WE'VE ALREADY DONE. LOOK AT WHAT ENERGIZED YOU IN THE PAST. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR WHAT'S NEXT- LOOK BACKWARDS. WHAT ENERGIZED YOU THE MOST IN YOUR LAST JOB? WHEN DID YOU FEEL MOST PROUD? WHAT ARE PEOPLE CONSTANTLY COMING TO YOU FOR ADVICE FOR?
