What it takes to achieve a significant goal...

I'm on quite an ambitious adventure myself, at the moment. 

In my work as a Comedy Magician, I've embarked on a project called The Big Local Night Out. A community based, but nationally replicated, series of arts events, that bring together professional artists alongside local talent.  

I'm looking to establish multiple locations - in fact, the long term goal is to have hundreds of them across the UK and beyond. That's a big enough goal in and of itself, but each location comes with it's own goal to create multiple partnerships, to build a significant audience and to become a recognised brand in that area. 

It's by far the biggest and most challenging adventure I've ever set myself to achieve - but day by day, I'm making traction and beginning to see how this could pan out.

Calling all Creative Professionals....

If you are like the creative professionals I know, you are probably, quite simply, unstoppable.  You're so driven by the love of your craft, that you will do anything to finish the race.

Maybe, like many, you've put off some activities that you know would be a game changer to your career. Perhaps you've lost confidence in networking, auditioning, marketing yourself - and you need some accountability to kick you into...

The Best Way To Establish Accountability

Accountability is often perceived as a threatening, uncomfortable and unfriendly word. The thought of it might cause feelings of stress, fear and discomfort. 

These negative feelings stem from the accountability narrative that says 'if the task isn't done, you are in trouble'. 

However, I want to change the context and narrative of how we understand accountability.  
I believe accountability can actually be both encouraging and empowering. 

Particularly for creatives, entrepreneurs and freelancers, accountability should be seen as an encouragement. Within the People On A Pursuit community, accountability is outworked as an encouragement. 

The narrative is less, 'get on with it or there's trouble'

But instead; 

'I believe you've got this....and this could be transformative for you and your project - Go and get what you so deserve!'
