verb (used with object), el·e·vat·ed, el·e·vat·ing
It’s a word that means success for you and your creative projects.
I have spent more than three decades working “in the trenches” with creatives of every stripe, hue, shape, and ability. From fitness coaches to bestselling authors, from beginning and intermediate writers to international models, actors, and comedians. From attorneys, art and design professionals, film studios and directors, television and radio broadcasters, musicians, bands, club owners, editors, museums, libraries, theater geeks…to choirs, cheer squads, and curators. I have worked with Olympic athletes, professional football players, and triathletes. With dancers, children’s book illustrators, photographers, artists, and entrepreneurs. With animators, designers, and IT techies.
But none of it gives me a reason to rest on my laurels. In fact, I am more excited and eager than ever to be working in the creative industries alongside some of the behemoths and beginners of their individual professions.
In short: I elevate you. I have rarely wanted to be the person in spotlight. My favorite place is behind the scenes supporting you in everything you strive for. However, I have been in that beloved spotlight, and know what it takes to get there.
We have entered a new, post-pandemic era where everything has veered away from “the hype” style of marketing to a much more intimate and quiet approach. Stadium tours have given way to intimate acoustic sets in little, out-of-the-way clubs and bars. Our exhibitionist ways have changed. The trend in the creative industry (among other industries) of posting public snapshots of work in progress to get feedback will evolve. Feedback exchange is extremely important, but the merits of a more private and controlled environment will shine through. In the near future, these exchanges will continue but in a different, more private forum, with carefully curated participants. This intimacy will increase the level of constructive criticism. We will see fewer remarks like “cool” and “LOL great work,” and more in-depth comments with substance. Private forums also help me to better serve clients who would prefer that their projects not be shared publicly before they are completed. It’s all about scope and scale. I understand what a fear of success feels like, as well as a fear of failure.
