How Play Fuels Creativity- An Interview with Wendy Conklin

On this episode, I’m speaking with Wendy Conklin of Chair Whimsy-

Wendy is one of the most creative people I’ve ever met, one look at her website or socials and you’ll get exactly what I mean. Wendy is a chair designer and educator, and after being lucky enough to work with Wendy on the photographs for her recent book, I knew I needed to have her on the show to talk about the importance of PLAYING, something we so often deny ourselves, and how play fuels creativity. I learned so much during our conversation, I can’t wait for you to hear from Wendy!

Being a creative doesn't mean you’re condemned to the life of a starving artist. You can find massive success in business AND satisfaction in your work, all while getting enough sleep each night and working a non-insane number of hours— one doesn’t have to come at the expense of the other. 

Helping photographers lean into their artistic
gifts AND earn a healthy profit from their work,
without sacrificing their sanity in the process.
