Vitamin B4: Inoculate Yourself from Your Inner Critic
Your inner critic can prevent you from growing, taking risks and moving forward. In fact, it can stop you right in your tracks – perhaps even leave you feeling unworthy of calling yourself a “real” artist. This week’s webinar will help you better recognize when this is happening and to be able to tap into your inner resources when you want to inject yourself with courage and confidence.

You will learn how to:

  • Recognize how your personal inner critic operates and when it is likely to speak up.
  • Better distinguish between your inner critic’s messaging and what’s really true when you are doubting yourself.
  • Create strategies to help you consciously access your unique inner resources to better support your growth and development.

Week 5 – Tuesday May 19 | 1pm EST

Vitamin B5: Build on Your Strengths and Be an Inspiration to Yourself
Culturally we tend to focus on fixing our weaknesses but our greatest opportunities for growth and development come from building on our strengths. This week’s webinar will help you better understand who you are when you are at your best as an artist and professional; what personal strengths and experience you draw on and what unique opportunities you have to build on them.

You will learn how to:

  • Identify your personal strengths and experience.
  • Explore how to turn your strengths and experience into opportunities in your professional practice.
  • Brainstorm how to boost your strengths.
