60 | An honest, important, raw and expansive conversation on creativity, and how we interact with it. With delightful award-winning art advisor, author, & curator, Maria Brito

This week’s conversation will have you holding on to your windowsill as Margo and her guest have an honest and expansive conversation around creativity – from distractions to mindset, habits, and so much more. Margo is joined by Maria Brito who is an award-winning New York-based contemporary art advisor, author, and curator. For several years, Maria has taught her creativity course in companies large and small and, in 2019, she launched “Jumpstart”, an online program on creativity for entrepreneurs based on years of research and observation in both the areas of business and art. 

Margo and Maria discuss:

  • Why she quit her lofty six-figure career as a lawyer to become an art advisor shortly after giving birth to her first child

  • The importance of her work to enforce the idea that anyone can be creative (and other facts rooted in science)

  • How our distractions nullify our creativity

  • The advantages of being an outsider to an industry or field you want to be in

  • How to actually allow and embrace change in your life

  • How creativity is closely related to abundance and success

  • Rewriting habits

  • Finding middle ground, civil discourse, and the art of listening

Maria is a Harvard graduate, originally from Venezuela, her first monograph “Out There”, was the recipient of the Best Book Awards in both the Art and Design Categories. Maria was selected by Complex Magazine as one of the 20 Power Players in the Art World and she was named by ARTNEWS as one of the visionaries who gets to shape the art world. She has written for publications such as Entrepreneur, Huffington Post, Elle, Forbes, Artnet, Cultured Magazine, goop, Departures, and the Gulf Coast Journal of Literature and Fine Arts from the University of Houston, Texas.
