45 | Should You Wait for Inspiration Before You Create?
Show Notes

Don’t you love it when a message practically writes itself? It’s that moment when God suddenly downloads some brilliant piece of content into your brain, and you get to receive it, record it, and share it with the world… all for His glory.

But life doesn’t work that way every day. As content creators and business owners, we know work still needs to get done whether it’s divinely inspired or not. As faith-based creators, how are we to handle the tension between inspiration and craft?

Does it honor God to create content without waiting on His direction? How can we build a sustainable business if those moments of inspiration don’t gel with our deadlines? And what are we really called to do as contentpreneurs? The answer might be much simpler than you think.
