“If it’s content that you’ve put your heart and soul into, owning your content is simply the only way to create work you love to make." — John Maeda

The Own Your Content series has been a thoughtful meditation and reflection on how we can honor our work by owning our digital content. As John Maeda imparted in our first interview, the most fruitful creative careers see the power in ownership and focus on the long-haul. If it’s work you've put your heart into, we hope you'll strive to cultivate it in your own garden, not someone else’s. 
You can always come back to this library of wisdom by visiting the series. If you're looking to start your own journey, is offering 10% off to the CreativeMornings community until the end of this month.
