Hi, I'm Jibran el Bazi
I’m the writer of this blog, and I’m passionate about helping creative people—writers, performing artists, designers, Youtubers, woodworkers, you name it—unlock their potential.
I believe that following your urge to create is, first and foremost, a decision to matter. It’s deciding that you have something to share that is valuable. That the lens through which you look at the world is adding something.
I want to help you tap that creative potential so you can bring your creative work into the world.
I write and teach about creativity—figuring out your story, overcoming limiting beliefs, doing the work, creating together—mostly through this blog. But also in 1-on-1 sessions and through public conversations.
I’ve struggled for a long time myself to find my authentic voice, to overcome resistance and my limiting beliefs (and it still is a constant battle). The things that helped me—the questions I dared to ask—can be of as much value to me as to you. So I’m discussing the questions and answers that, from experience, lead to a more creative life.
The quickest route to figuring out “where you’re at” in relation to your creative practice is to fill out the quiz I made specifically for that. You can also scroll through my blog or connect with me directly on Twitter.
