About This Class

Must is your calling. It's what you feel deeply convicted to do. In order to identify and follow your Must, you have to show up and take a few steps — and this exercise will help you get there.

Success is never from scratch. Join Elle Luna, artist, designer, and author of The Crossroads of Should and Must: Find and Follow Your Passion for a tactical and inspiring exercise on learning how to take action from inspirations. Elle walks you through assembling a Mentor Tree: you'll identify a list of dream mentors, learn more about their approach, and use that as a tool for getting unstuck. Identifying your influences and learning from their practices and their success will give you clarity in your own creative pursuits.

This is a great exercise to use in your day-to-day life as a creator. It's an exercise you can return to whenever you need inspiration, a boost of energy, or a bit of critique in your work. If you're someone who loves to pin and tack up what inspires you — and looks up to creators on their own journeys — this class will reinvigorate what you do and give you space to grow.

I love the idea!
This course was perfect. and all the other courses Elle Luna offers. At 33 years old I am finally working on my art and studying what inspires me. I hope for more content in the future.
