I’m so happy to hear you found it helpful! It makes sense for my brain, I just needed a way to segment it up like that, but it’s awesome to hear it’s helpful for others too.

You've given us words to talk about this. So, I can say right now, that whilst my creative account is overflowing, I am so low on both emotional and energy dollars! In fact, I'm planning a 2 or 3 day self retreat next week to help me earn some so I can start budgetting for all the ideas I have! This is both an innovative and useful way to think about how we manage our creative projects. Thank you for sharing, Keeley.

This is super interesting. I've long talked about a goodwill bank and an energy first mentality (like profit first, but energy) so this definitely resonates.
