Being A Creative Sucks

Being A Creative Sucks

By Alamu Akinkunmi

I talk about problems I face as a creative and how I solved and didn't solve them. It's also a personal open diary. I don't think it's worth it, but check it out and let me know.
Oh, You might get free ideas or projects you could work on (Not going to lie, I have so much stuffs in my head but I can't do all but you can, right?)

A very personal episode
First things first, I didnt switch on the microphone and also refused to edit the audio. It's too pure and it feels like rubbish but that's the pure truth. Welcome to my space. I want to be able to express myself. Don't judge. Thank you

EP 004: Hey, it's me!
I find it hard to talk about myself without trying to make references to certain stories I feel people might learn from. I promised to include someone's handle in my description but I won't. I'd keep updating about myself. Bond with me: https://www.instagram.com/alamuakinkunmi and feel free to request for what you want to know about me.

EP 003: Sex and My Business
I should take my advice more often: I recorded this podcast since 12th of June but I didn't assure myself too well to push it out there. In this episode I tried to go outside the box and also shared personal experience on the particular topic. Ps. You don't have to have sex before you be a pro at your business. I hope I did justice to the topic. Please give reviews and also feel free to connect with me on IG @alamuakinkunmi. See ya next time.

EP 002: CAAC - The Recommendation
It's pretty simple, no excuses! I started and here it is, sorry for taking so long. I tried scripting my podcast today and I feel it took out the originality and the flow of ideas. This could be better: Send me a DM here instagram.com/alamuakinkunmi let's relate. I really want to get better

EP 001: So many errors, but I am what I say I am
it could be said to be the worse podcast you'd ever listen to or you probably will believe in me the way I believe in myself. It's a new energy, tell me what you think.
