"Creative people aren’t necessarily motivated by money or other trappings of success and they don’t need their creativity unleashed. In fact, according to Bennett, most are already “unleashed” enough. What creative people need are not more platitudes or encouragement but effective tools for overcoming the procrastination and lack of focus that hobble them. Sam, herself an actor and comedienne, knows first-hand how these frustrations suck up energy, and she offers field-tested tools to get beyond them and stay in the creative zone. Sam is prepared to discuss with your audience:

  • How to override the “getting ready to get ready” syndrome
  • The superiority of “could-do” lists over dictatorial “to-do” lists
  • Determining which of your 37 projects to tackle first
  • The top three things to do to get past perfectionism
  • The tools you need in your creativity toolkit
  • Building a daily creativity habit into a 24/7 world.

Creative people tend to see the world a little differently than everyone else. But that doesn’t mean they can’t zero in on their goals, get focused, get organized, and not only accomplish projects but earn money at it. Get It Done helps artists to get a handle on their own particular — even peculiar — creative process and harness their energies in positive, creative, and income-generating ways."
