EP 12: Choosing your story with Nicky Raby

Episode 12,  Apr 23, 2021, 01:15 PM

This week’s episode of The Creativity Campus Podcast and I’m talking to Nicky Raby
Nicky has such an impressive portfolio career, that pulls and weaves together so many strands of her creativity. She is an actor, qualified life and business coach, she is a writer, speaker and her specialism is helping people build thriving, profitable, and fulfilling personal brands for themselves. Her podcast ‘Dreaming and Doing with Nicky Raby’ regularly features on the top 100 business podcasts on iTunes, and it has had over 100k downloads, which, for someone releasing their twelfth episode today, is pretty humbling.
As I was recording today’s episode, I was reminded of the saying; you are the author of your life story, which is one of the powerful themes at the heart of today’s episode!  

During this conversation, Nicky shares her own creative journey and reveals how, by becoming strategic, taking control and ultimately, by actually choosing what she wants her story to be, she has been able to build a thriving portfolio career and help many others do the same.  
Following your creativity and pursuing a creative career, is not always the easiest of paths. Very often, it can feel like handing over the controls and letting someone else take the wheel. Accepting that this is the story of what a creative life looks like, we can get swept along for the ride, even when we don’t like the direction, we’re moving in. 

If your current story is no longer serving you, your life or your creativity, you don’t need to accept it. You can choose a different story. And if you’re not sure how to do that, then this conversation with Nicky is going to be a great place to start.

Happy Listening!
