Nothing inspires me to be creative quite like a good book!  

 I’m having a bit of a fangirl moment today, because one of my podcast heroes is this week’s guest. Anne Bogel is the Modern Mrs. Darcy and host of the “What Should I Read Next?” Podcast. Anne’s podcast encourages everyone to explore books of all kinds, and that reflects the creative and personable spirit she brings to the conversation. Anne isn’t just a reader. She’s also the author of Reading People, a book all about how to use popular personality frameworks to tackle real life problems.


Today, Anne is going to share not just what creativity means to her, but also how reading and writing unlocks the creative spirit within her. Anne will share her Number 1 tip for reading more, even in the middle of our crazy lives. We will also share how reading shapes the creative process and inspires us to create work of our own. It’s enough to make you want to get lost in a book!
