Your Personal Body of Work

“Your body of work becomes your brand, your purpose and your personal legacy.”

I’m not a fan of people who try to sell me something about my brand. But Pamela Slim is different. Not only is she a very nice lady (I’ve chatted with her a few times by email over the years), she grounds her wisdom in real life. She understands that part of our brand is very much tied to how we have suffered because of who we are.

In this TEDx talk she describes creating an internal sense of our own work that anchors us during the dark times – particularly when we cannot create – but also brings us our happiness and joy. She speaks to works, owners and artists.
