Welcome to Productive Flourishing!

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checked by failure…than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. – Theodore Roosevelt

We help Creative Giants thrive in life and business.

What’s a Creative Giant, you ask?

Creative Giants are talented Renaissance Souls with a compassion-fueled bias towards action. They are functionally delusional enough to think they can create a better world, and tenacious, capable, and courageous enough to actually do it. This, of course, naturally makes them Giants among men – but it’s pretty awkward, vulnerable, and lonely to be an outlier, so they’ve learned to hide their gianthood. Read more about the 12 characteristics of Creative Giants here.

If this sounds like you, know this: you do not have to hide here. We challenge you to stand tall and be as amazing as you are. The taller you stand, the taller we can, as well.

We get Creative Giants because we are Creative Giants. We’re figuring this out together.

We focus on the Be-Know-Do of mastering yourself and the world. You have to BE a person of character. You have to Know the skills and expertise that power your craft and body of work. And you’ve got to Do the work and continually start finishing the stuff that matters.

Where do I start?
