Episode #134: How to Carve Out Creative Space

With Amy Whitaker, author of Art Thinking

amy whitakerUp until a few weeks ago, I’d never heard of Amy Whitaker or her new book.

It’s awesome publications though like Success Magazine (I’ve been a subscriber since 2013) that have introduced me to new books and up-and-coming authors I might have otherwise missed. 

Amy’s new book is Art Thinking: How to Carve Out Creative Space in a World of Schedules, Budgets, and Bosses, and it officially releases today, July 5, 2016. 

Amy believes business thinkers can learn from artists and writers. To that Success Magazine says, “At a time when science, technology, engineering and math threaten to crowd the humanities out of American universities, Whitaker’s approach could not be more timely.” 

Her book lays out a program for cultivating art thinking, and “how to leverage creative failure into progress, inventions, and new products or services.”
