Maxima-Kahn-sqMaxima Kahn is an accomplished Creative and “Ambassador of play.” Inviting wonder, curiosity, imagination, and cooperation, Max encourages us to venture beyond the ego to open channels of creativity.

In this episode, Maxima Kahn reveals her 3 P’s which are the key to inspiration and getting in the flow–inviting more moments of deep engagement where you lose track of time. She also talks about inviting more creativity into your life and being more productive and prioritizing what you truly love.

Max also talks with host Shawn Tuttle about:

  • what lights you up and learning to listen to yourself
  • sustaining an ongoing creative life in a healthy way
  • defying societal cravings (i.e., certain definitions of success)
  • promoting inspiration through understanding what keeps you going and what shuts you down
