Freedom and perseverance at work - What can we learn from creative entrepreneurs?
Creative entrepreneurs are inspired by creative work and the freedom they have. They do things which they find meaningful and enjoyable. The price they pay for their freedom may include insecure or lower income.
What does this tell us about the importance of freedom, ability to engage in meaningful work and perseverance when experiencing challenges?
How do creative entrepreneurs embrace their creativity, how do they survive when facing adversity during pandemic, for example, and how do they realize their creative projects with resources in hands? What kind of value do they create to themselves, their customers and the society?
