Austin Kleon understands the importance of being creative in our hectic and oftentimes chaotic world. Kleon definitely has a natural gift when it comes to motivating and inspiring those with creative ambitions.

I highly recommend reading Kleon’s books Steal Like and Artist and Show Your Work! as they’ve helped motivate millions of people as they pursue their creative endeavors. Personally, I’ve revisited his books many times over the past several years whenever I needed a creative push to get back on track.

Earlier this year, BackerKit had the pleasure to host a conference called Bond, and Kleon presented a brand new talk that serves as the foundation for his upcoming book Keep Going hitting store shelves April 2019. A must-watch for anyone who has ever felt they should just give up while pursuing a passion in life. I’m guessing that’s all of us.
