Crafting an Authentic Creative Practice with Antoinette Placides

The world of creativity knows no bounds, and Antoinette Placides is a living testament to this. Originally from the Philippines, Antoinette wanted to live in a place that would celebrate and nurture her various artistic passions so with her three children in tow, she decided to take the leap and move to Paris. 

She currently has several projects in the works but her creative journey began with producing and editing podcast shows, which eventually led her to delve into YouTube videos. She coaches other podcasters and small business owners as well as creates her own line of hand-crafted candles and polymer clay earrings.

The Path to Self-Discovery

Through introspective practices, Antoinette spent time trying to understand her true self, by confronting societal norms and reshaping her values. She emphasizes the importance of setting boundaries and reevaluating them periodically to align with personal growth and aspirations. By embracing vulnerability and releasing societal guilt, Antoinette encourages others to define their values authentically and unapologetically.

Overcoming Imposter Syndrome with Courage

Imposter syndrome is a common hurdle for many creatives, but Antoinette’s advice is simple – just do it. By taking baby steps out of one’s comfort zone, creatives can gradually build the courage muscle and navigate through uncertainties. Embracing self-discovery, breaking societal norms, and fostering self-belief are key elements in combating imposter syndrome and cultivating creative confidence.

Creating Space for Creativity

A crucial aspect of nurturing creativity is creating an environment conducive to exploration and expression. Antoinette finds it especially helpful to make physical and mental space for creative endeavors, whether it’s through reading, engaging in hands-on projects, or by setting up a dedicated workspace. She also believes it’s important to prioritize self-care, and by doing so individuals can better unleash their creative potential and drive.

The Future for Antoinette

As Antoinette embarks on new creative ventures, including podcast management services for multifaceted entrepreneurs and a summer launch of polymer clay earrings and soy wax products, she invites fellow creatives to embrace their diverse talents and passions. Her journey serves as an inspiration for those navigating the realms of creativity, entrepreneurship, and self-discovery.
