Working in a creative field such as fashion/beauty PR can momentarily drain you of your natural creative ability. Finding inspiration that actually makes you want to get up and do something is few and far between. Sure, I can watch a really touching and heartfelt viral video about how the minutes in my life are being wasted redacted into jelly beans but that’s not making me jump out of bed.
What I find drives me to make real change is seeing the success of my peers. Young people who are really grinding in their fields and making upward moves. Whether that’s leveraging their photography skills, blogging, working in tech, travelling or entering the corporate realm, it’s all highly motivating and makes me wonder what I personally should be doing more, or less, of.
