INFLUENCERS

How to define influence? What makes someone influent? What is the link between trends and influence? Are there places/events conducive to creative pollination? 

I came across this short documentary that explores these questions and what it means to be an influencer and how trends and creativity become contagious today in music, fashion and entertainment. The film attempts to understand the essence of influence, what makes a person influential without taking a statistical or metric approach.

In the background, the documentary also explores an entire ecosystem of DIY (Do It Yourself) minded individuals whose passion is transforming Pop Culture. Their creations have produced powerful independent media that became the main news source for many readers and creatives entrepreneurs around the world. influencers

Creativity is contagious, pass it on

Creative expression typically offers no guaranteed results… and sometimes it doesn’t come with a clear yes.

We may think we have a clear vision when we finally begin, but as we give it voice or form, we learn that it begins to take its own shape, and often it is somewhat different than how we first envisioned it. That’s one of the beautiful things about creative expression, if we can simply learn to enter this flow and allow our idea to show us the shape that it wants to take.

What would it be like to simply go with the flow of change in life, take risks, and remain curious about the outcome?
