Welcome to the Organized Artist Company with Samantha Bennett

So If You Are Feeling…


Procrastinate-y:

I know what I need to do…I just can’t seem to make myself do it

You might love this article called “The Reason You Procrastinate” – there’s also a link to a free webinar created especially for you – this is fun & practical info.


Overwhelmed: I start lots of projects but don’t finish them.

Then you’ll absolutely love reading the “Ode To The Overwhelmed”


 

Ready: When will it be my turn?

Well, if you’re ready to take some action, here’s a helpful post about the “how to make money off of your creativity today” bit: http://theorganizedartistcompany.com/2011/06/wanna-launch-a-product-today/#

 

Confused: I don’t even know where to begin.

Then maybe you want to check out the wildly inexpensive Procrastination Domination Starter Kit

 

Stubborn: I can’t give up yet. Or ever.

Part of the reason you’re so stubborn is because you know that your work is pretty great.  After all, people tell you all the time how talented you are, don’t they?  And sometimes those compliments can hurt even worse than the rejections.  Check out this free audio: Why Is It So Awful When Everyone Thinks You’

re So Wonderful?

 

Hungry: Got my nose pressed right up against the glass.

Honey, you need a boost!  There’s a very inspiring true success story here about achieving a seemingly impossible dream: http://theorganizedartistcompany.com/2011/09/are-you-sure-its-impossible/#

 

Foggy: I might be in need of a very kind, loving, compassionate smack upside the head.

Then you might enjoy the daily inspiration provided by The 365 Club – a secure, structured, goal-oriented members-only community for the creative genius.

 

If you’ve ever been called…

sensitive, too sensitive, waaaaay too sensitive, weird, artsy, melodramatic, a

big ol’ drama queen, psychic, unique, odd, old-fashioned, eccentric, misguided, special, tolerant of ambiguity, optimistic, viciously self critical, expressive, inventive, a pollyanna, misunderstood, different,

deluded, ambitious, contrary, talkative, awake, gifted, diverse, scary, intense, playful, iconoclastic, independent, freaky, unrealistic or just plain crazy…

Then you’ve come to the right place.
Let’s work together.

 

I founded The Organized Artist Company because I noticed that there were lots of resources out there for business people…but creative people don’t care who’s moved their cheese, you know?

And there’s a bunch of creativity books around, but many of them are about “unleashing your inner artist.”  So what about those of us whose inner artist is already plenty outer and plenty unleashed, thank you very much.  What do we do?

The Organized Artist Company is designed to help creative people

  • prioritize
  • decide
  • create a project plan
  • follow-through on the plan, adapting as necessary
  • quit being so infernally hard on themselves

It’s time to spend some time on the work you love most.

Let me know if I can help, OK?

Yours,

Sam.

    Samantha,
    I love your poem! You got it exactly right. Funny how raising kids and directing are universal!

    Love! Your Poem for the Exhuberant — it brought me to this site and I already can tell it was meant to be.

    New fan,

    Stephanie

      Destiny in action for sure! Thank you so much, Stephanie. Enjoy! xoxo Sam.

    I signed up for your 365 reasons to write last year. Well, on Day 284, many things clicked and I am enjoying a volcano of creativity that I’ve not had in 6 years. How to stay sane in the midst of these paradigm-shifting events…and not drive my supah~supportive honey up the wall? : )

    • admin August 7, 2012, 8:52 pm

      Well, Ella, you do what any sane volcano-dwelling person would do: get on your fireproof pants and start dancing!

      Seriously, just keep surfing the energy. And make sure that at least once per day you let your darling honey know how much you love ‘em in whatever way is most meaningful to THEM. Some people like a home-cooked meal, others love a backrub, some like a gift or a love note on the bathroom mirror and I myself am a sucker for a sincere compliment.

      Even while 3/4 of your brain is spinning away on your latest genius idea, you can still take a moment to make sure your lover FEELS the love, you know? (Then you can jump right back to work : )

      Let me know how it goes, OK? xoxo Sam.

    Sam – I’m listening to “Your Creative year” and you need to know this: We can feel the love and affection in your voice, it feels like you are hugging us through all our drama. Thanks for that.

    • admin January 5, 2013, 11:40 am

      Thank you, Tammy! What a lovely thing to say…I’m quite moved. And YES! BIG HUGS and the occasional thwack upside the head to all of you gorgeous creative creatures. xoox Sam.
