What inspires you - describe it:
My music – to wake me up, sometimes to express my feelings; images (magazines, Pinterest, deviant art); my books – the pull me from reality for a little while – clear my mind and most importantly... my family (my amazing Hubby and 2 beautiful girlies!)

How this inspiration overlaps with your work
A clear mind can focus on the task at hand. Taking that 5,10 or even 15 minutes to turn off work and regroup is sometimes required. And keeping my music going strong all day helps me block out unnecessary distractions.

New Office Idea
An image of a cool office: GooglePlex; Exploritorium; Phoenix children’s Museum
For consideration in the new office space, this inspires you because: it’s fun
Whiteboards – not just for notes, but drawing, tic-tac-toe, etc.
Cork boards for pinning everything
Art wires – to hang drawings, scribbles, business cards, birthday cards, etc.
Art easels, markers, charcoals, pencils, markers, pastels, etc…. I’m an art geek and ex-art major…. To have that around would be awesome.
Listen to webinars/watch webinars on the treadmills/stationary bikes/etc.
