One of my favorite quotes from this episode is this:
“I think about my energy a lot. Not just from you know, eating food and exercising. But also like what feeds my creative energy and I work really hard to actually protect and fuel my creative energy. Because it’s so valuable to me and what I do and not only making money, but just feeling fulfilled in the world. And there’s a lot of great information out there about energy management and I have been learning a lot more there and then I finally realized like the biggest thing that I’ve been doing is there’s like these identity pieces that I’ve had to dig into and some of them I’ve had, I don’t want to say change. Because I think they were there. I was just kind of like unwavering and unblocking them and I realized that in some ways I was having some, a lot of shame that was kind of locked around some parts of who I was. Because the way that I naturally wanted to operate as a creative.” – Jason Van Orden
