Be a Champion & Date Lots of Things with Diane Gibbs | Design Recharge

Diane Gibbs: A Champion for Creatives

Somedays you just lack the spark. You know, that feeling or reason that gets you stoked to jump out of bed and work on shit that lights your soul on fire.

Often it’s hard to see the gold we have buried within us. The inner critic blinds us from catching a glimpse of our potential.

Sometimes having an outside voice of reason can help break through that wall and give you the needed push to light that spark again. Sometimes you just need a champion or cheerleader in your corner.

While it may not be easy to be your own champion, you always have the ability to champion someone else.

People appreciate being appreciated. You never know the impact you can have on someone by spending a few moments of your existence to pepper them with a verbal pat on the back.

Maybe it’s just my background in coaching as I’ve had some asshole coaches who would destroy my confidence when I played sports. Its shown me the power of building someone up to help them perform at their best.

Someone who is a champion for creatives and does so much for our industry is Diane Gibbs. There’s an endless list of reasons why Diane deserves recognition as she:

  • Molds our future generation as a professor
  • Has the biggest and upcoming names share their stories on her weekly Design Recharge Show
  • Organizes and host events for creatives through her AIGA Mobile Chapter
  • Volunteers her time to help provide an incredible experience for people at Creative South

I could keep going but honestly, Perspective-Collective would not be where it’s at today without Diane.

Door Builder & Opener

True story. after writing shitty blog posts for almost a year, Diane offered me one of the biggest breakthroughs of my life when she asked me to be a Keynote at a conference she was hosting in Alabama. It scared me to death as doing your first talk in front of over 100 people isn’t easy, but reluctantly AND thankfully I said yes.

That opportunity jump-started my speaking career which then got me into teaching workshops and most importantly, starting this podcast.

Diane is a champion for creatives like you and me. I’m absolutely honored to have this brilliant woman on the show and I know you’re going to love her as much as I do.

If you find value in this episode, please give it a share via Instagram or Twitter and share the love.
