Becky Blades, is an artist, entrepreneur, writer and self-defined “stARTist”. We are thrilled to host a book signing for her latest project, Start More Than You Can Finish, in our Bigfork Gallery!
In Start More Than You Can Finish, Blades shows us the way to a regret-free “stARTistic” life — by acting on our ideas sooner, faster, better and more often. In her buoyant voice, Blades unwraps weighty facts and uplifting wisdom. Blades shows how starting more … before we’re certain, before we’re fearless, before we have everything we need to finish … is the secret to creative success. Whether you want to tell a story, birth an artwork, launch a business, or recreate a life, this book may be the coach, muse, and permission you’ve been craving.
Blades draws on hundreds of interviews with stARTists plus research in neuroscience, creativity and behavioral science to arrive at a fresh take on starting and finishing. Real-life examples from creators of all stripes — inventors, artists, chefs, writers, business innovators, teachers, song writers, speakers, gardeners and more — inspire hard hitting observations about how we get and move ideas. Blades’ discoveries tee up a simple four-part starting process — a framework to shift our thinking from a one-at-a-time, finish-as-planned model to a shame-free, start-where-you-are mindset that lets ideas lead the way.
