Active Brain, Inactive Body
If you’re like me, it’s hard to turn off the switch and unplug from your creative realm. There’s always one more thing that you could get done or a new idea that needs to be flushed out.
We get so wrapped up in work that we often neglect other important areas of our life…you know, like our health and well being?
As you know, many creatives live a sedentary lifestyle. Busting your ass is great, but if you want a long successful career and life, taking care of yourself should come first.
When you get away from your work and find an active outlet, you never know what new passion you may find. Even better, your new passion for your health may show up in your work, which could inspire others to focus on their health.
Challenge Your Body, Challenge Your Mind with Andreas Pedersen
Queue today’s guest, Andreas Pedersen AKA @andycloned on Instagram. He’s an avid runner and a graphic wizard out of Sweden who focuses on branding, illustrations, and lettering.
Andy and I go back a few years now through Instagram, and it’s been great watching his style evolve and audience grow.
There’s two things that I really admire about his personality and craft:
- I strongly vibe to his mission of helping other creatives become more active and share their progress creatively.
- I highly respect his approach to marketing himself and letting the universe know he’s for hire.
In this episode, we sprint through topics like:
- Not stopping when the work stops
- Campaigning for his project, the Makers Athletic Society
- Experimenting and evolving your style
- Creating personal work to attract jobs
- Pizza, typefaces, creative outlets, and more…
I think he’s the perfect fit for our listeners and has a ton of great insight to offer to help you scale your creative pursuits.
