The Creative Life of Fay Chan – Budgeting123

Each month I want to shine a spotlight on how business owners incorporate their creativity across all aspects of their life, and give some ‘behind the scenes’ insight into how they started and plan for their business.

This month I’d like to introduce you to The Creative Life of Fay Chan.

Fay runs Budgeting123 as a Financial Readiness and Budgeting Coach. Fay helps individuals and families to plan their household savings and spending goals. The foundation of her work is based on awareness and responsibility –  knowing where your money goes and where it doesn’t go!

So what has all of this number stuff got to do with creativity? And no, it has nothing to do with creative accounting :-).

I really enjoyed talking to Fay because she links numbers, money and creativity with being spiritual, empowered and on purpose. I was also in awe of the importance that Fay places on being aligned and grounded in relation to her creativity and how she works. Her creative practices may appear simple, but they are consistent with what research is discovering about the creative process*, and are helping Fay achieve consistent and great results for her business and clients.

So please read Fay’s candid and inspiring interview to find out, amongst other things, about:

  • the chore that she started in primary school that built the foundations for her current business
  • the turning point that made Fay re-evaluate her childhood beliefs and give up her corporate job to take a leap of faith towards where she is now
  • how Fay models self-awareness in juggling work and being a Mum to her pre-schooler
  • what washing dishes and other mundane chores have to do with fostering Fay’s creativity

Harnessing Your Characteristics for Creativity

A little while ago, I wrote a blog called Discover the Magic Formula to Creativity about finding a key to filter which creative tips and tools are right for you.

For example:
  • Are you a morning person or a night owl?
  • Do you like to work in big blocks of time or in short bursts?
  • Do you like to get ‘hands on’ when you’re thinking?
  • Or do you need to see things written up first?
The more you understand yourself, your nature, work patterns, priorities, and habits, the easier it is to harness these qualities to bring more creativity into your work and life.

We’re also more likely to be creative when we’re relaxed and being ourselves. 

Great! You might say. I understand that I’m a morning person who likes to get hands on in my projects and prefer to work in short bursts of activity. How’s that going to help me be more creative?
