Since 2011 Creativity Portal has extended an open invitation to creative professionals at all levels to participate in our 20Q Interview series.

A growing array of entrepreneurs, leaders, artists, writers, professors, teachers, coaches, therapists, performers, inventors, and others continue to answer the call to help inspire others trying to figure out their own creative callings and career paths. Participants respond to our questions eagerly, thoughtfully, and candidly with their stories detailing the ups and downs of their particular creative and artistic paths, from where they came from to where they intend to go, and plenty of in-between.

Enjoy the Stories!
