Last year, I secretly struggled with bouts of insecurity. In spite of a font of mine going viral and crashing my site, I couldn’t bear to call myself a type designer. I was a fraud who just lucked out. For the first time in a while, I was questioning if I really knew what the heck I was doing. I was trying to deal with what I later discovered was Impostor Syndrome. Sorry if this sounds like a cry for help or a fish for compliments. Trust me, it’s not. (I’m okay now, so we can move on.)
What did I do to help myself? I replaced my usual music and podcasts with CreativeLive courses. I’ve taken a Photography class before, and loved it. I went back to see if there was anything there for me. Boy, the Money & Life classes were everything!

A few of my friends, apparently, were going through something similar in their lives. A lot of them seemed to be going through huge life changes. I gifted my friends with these courses that helped me.

There’s a course for everyone! If you’re not ready to shell out cash for courses, you can always catch whatever courses are live and on-air each day. To be honest, my absolute favorite classes were the short series that spanned over a month. The interviews with various creators were great. Yes, your struggles are real. Your dreams are valid. My favorite FREE series is:
As you can see, I’m a huge fan. I’m not going to claim that all classes are great. I have skipped through a couple. But, like I mentioned, check Out CreativeLive’s Free On-Air Classes. You can’t go wrong with free. Also, CLICK HERE to get $15 off a course. If you’ve taken a class here and there, let me know your favorites. I’d love to check out what other folks find most useful.
