Bill McGowan talks career change, creativity, and the state of things.
I recently rediscovered today’s guest on LinkedIn. Bill McGowan is a writer, now ad agency guru, and I’ve known Bill easily for 30 years. In 2008 the recession hit and like many, Bill was forced to make some changes. He gave up the writing gig and had to reinvent his future.
His insights are unique to the creative field, and yet universal to many of us. I think you’ll enjoy his passion.
Quotes to watch for: “There are winners, there are losers, there are hard knocks...the wonderful thing is...you learn very little from success, you learn a lot more from failure.”
On the creative process: “...always create. When you think about it, that’s the soul of the universe, creation.”
