Why It Can Be Harder for Creatives to Achieve Their Goals

Perhaps, like me, you’re a very creative person. A dreamer. An idealist.

And you have big goals and dreams you’d like to achieve. If that’s the case, I’m about to share information that will be very beneficial to you. If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, this information is vital—I know so from experience.It was a hot, stuffy afternoon in Bangkok.

“I’m getting there,” I mumbled between two bites of Pad Thai.Almost a year before that, I had left my job and apartment in Montreal and flown to Thailand with the intention of “making it happen.” I spent that year in Thailand hustling, starting a bunch of projects and quitting them all, one after the other, most often due to being distracted by a new idea or simply losing interest.

The thing was that it wasn’t just that year in Thailand that was concerning; I had been hustling for five years, getting nowhere close to having a profitable business.
