Try Out This Coaching Tip to Become the “Star and Creator” of Your Own Show

Have you noticed that the combo of “Star of” and “Creator of” keeps popping up in your favorite TV shows? Everyone from Lena Dunham, to Mindy Kaling, to the girls of Broad City have jumped on this trend. What could be better than being the lead actor of a show written by you! Today, I want all of you to be inspired by creative individuals and aspire to be one yourself. To do this, I suggest we all keep a journal. Whenever an idea strikes take a few minutes to write down your thoughts rather than let them pass you by. Harness your creative energy and give yourself the space to let your mind explore the ideas I am sure are brewing below the surface.

Journal topics, episode ideas, characters, and stories that could lead you to generate your own content. I know we are all capable. We just have to give ourselves the opportunity and time to let the juices flow. I guarantee after a few days you will start to develop concepts that could one day lead you to play your own version of Hannah on “Girls”. Give a try and let me know what you think. I can’t wait to hear all your amazing thoughts!
