Patti Smith's advice to all creatives...

To end this week on an inspiring note, we've come across this great interview of Patti Smith at a festival in Louisiana, handing out some great advice to all creative people. 


She explains that William Burroughs told her when she was really young and struggling, “Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Don’t make compromises, don’t worry about making a bunch of money or being successful. Be concerned about doing good work. Protect your work and if you build a good name, eventually that name will be its own currency. Life is like a roller coaster ride, it is never going to be perfect. It is going to have perfect moments and rough spots, but it’s all worth it.”
