Episode 59 (Halftime): Subjective vs. Objective

Oftentimes, we creative people run into debates with clients or other stakeholders due to both inserting subjective opinions on the work at hand. These converations are extremely unproductive in all honestly, hard to win when you are not paying for the work.

Opinion versus opinion leads to conversations that tend to go nowwhere. In this episode of Halftime, I discuss the difference of being objective versus being objective and why even though as creative people, we tend to have better taste than most, we should approach business and conversations about business with the latter.
