Brandon is so honest in this podcast. His insights on design and it's practice has helped me in so many areas. I find this podcast so helpful because he goes into subjects that are so relatable and I honestly didn't know if big designers went through. This is a must listen if you are a creative no matter what kind.

What is truly fueling our careers in a creative field? Before any expectation of status or income was our focus, we were simply creative people, wanting to spend our time doing creative things. Let's remember why we started doing this in the first place. With an internet full of suggestions or expectations of where our careers or our lives should be, maybe we can dig deeper to find a purer form of motivation. Host Brandon Rike recounts his path through his creative career to find the motivators that proved false, and the ones that kept him going.
