We were thrilled to have creativity specialist, artist and blogger Kim Zanti join us who has contributed to the field of creativity with published articles, a blog (Catalyst Muse), and is currently working on a short documentary about creative placemaking.
Kim explores risk-taking with us with a quick game (Risk Roulette!), just as she recently did in an LA Libraries workshop on risk-taking for career pivots. We dig into the fear of failure, opportunities for growth, how to follow our gut and set the environment to feel aligned in our risk-taking.
We would love to hear from you any thoughts, reactions, or takeaways you have as you’re listening and we invite you to take a screenshot and tag us @the.idea.gym and Kim @zanti_kay on Instagram.
