An Audience of One

by Srinivas Rao


A creative career can be a challenging one. There always seems to be more admin to do than anything inspiring. Srinivas Rao, an author and the host of the Unmistakable Creative podcast, wants to change that mindset.

Rao's 2018 book, An Audience Of One: Reclaiming Creativity for Its Own Sake, proposes you must first learn how to just create for yourself. Once you learn how to do that wholeheartedly and consistently, all the external success will follow.
