CREATIVES TO WATCH IN ’22: WILY
We’ve said it before — enabling creatives to do their best IS a dynamic, creative superpower in a class all its own.
In your creative journey, you’ll encounter no end of people who say they CAN help. Or that they know HOW to help. But, finding those who have the mind and the heart TO FOLLOW THROUGH can be tough.
It’s an absolute gift when you find someone with the skill and the will to help creatives see what they can be … and get YOU there. It’s a complete miracle when you can find two. And, that’s the visionary pair of Eric Gorman and Julia Jackson — a.k.a. Wily.
QUIET LEADERSHIP THAT LEADS TO LOUD BREAKTHROUGHS
For years, they’ve been behind some of the biggest and best transformations in Charlotte, assisting creative companies and nonprofits to find ways to be successful, grow and make bigger impacts. They don’t work their magic with complicated schemes, fancy (and intimidating) business vocabulary, wild gestures or Tony Robbins-like speeches.
They do it with quiet. They ask questions. TheY listen. They write it down. They make you write it down. They invite you to ask questions of them (at first) and then of yourself.
They lead you through your own process to see where you place obstacles in your own way or distract yourself from opportunities that could change your life. They don’t implant preconceived notions. They pull the answers out of you.
Whether you know it or not, you’ve been watching their clients blow up for awhile now.
In 2022, we invite you to watch Wily and see how their creative cunning is at work in Charlotte.
