Stan Lee offers this advice to creators

Stan Lee

When Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee pitched his idea of a superhero called Spiderman, the executives laughed him off.

They said no one liked spiders, teenagers only made good sidekicks, and no one was interested in a superhero with personal problems.

But it being the magazine’s last issue, Stan Lee got his chance to put Spiderman on the cover and sales boomed. The rest is history.

So Stan offers this advice for all creators alike.

“If you have an idea that you genuinely think is great, don’t let some idiot talk you out of it.” — Stan Lee

So give yourself permission to build. Push through CRAP– criticism, rejection, assholes, and pressure.

If you're an artist, photographer, writer, etc., I highly recommend creating your own blog and publishing something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).
