"I wanted to make a symposium but all I could come up with was a revolution."- Victore
I'm excited to tell you about Take This Job and Love It. It's a one day event which brings hot and horny creators from all over the world to gain knowledge and get inspired. It's a jail break! No more questioning what your doing for a living, who you've become in this business, in this life… Learn kickass skills and work through the hard questions on your path to personal greatness.
TTJALI is the convergence of design and creative arts, personal development and social impact. I'm breaking the mold and creating a place for creative thinkers to reignite their passion in their business and in their lives-- to dig deep into the fire that made you want to be a creator and fan those flames.
This is a revolution. Join me. Designers, writers, artists, small-business owners, educators, anyone who wants to learn how to light up your career, harness your power, and make positive difference in the world, – this is for you!
+++ What to expect
(Going from zero to hero)
A full day of insights and discoveries with James Victore in a frank and humorous search for meaning in both work and life.
- Reclaiming your creativity
- Having an opinion (and putting it in your work)
- Confidence. Conquering fear and self-doubt
- Dance breaks. Lunch. Delicious treats
- The fruitless pursuit of perfection
- Unicorns pooping rainbows?
- Play, tapping into the creative muse
- The path (and cost) of freedom
- Creating a culture of excellence
"James Victore is a man of action. He believes that knowing about jazz and wine and auto-racing can make you a better designer. That graphic design is about experiences and stories and using your hands. That the best designs punch you in the gut – or, at the very least, stop you in your tracks. -Jocelyn K. Glei, 99%
"His provocative style extends from his own work to how he encourages others." -Karen Day, CoolHunting
"Guns blazing, James Victore speaks with audacity, candor, and unmatched intensity. His lectures abruptly inspire, offering not a passive call-to-action but a demand for change, promising to light a fire - not only in your heart, but also under your ass." –Jenny Venn, Asst. Prof. of Art, Graphic Design, Univ. of Wyoming
"The opportunity to live and work with James Victore will wildly exceed your expectations. James sees, shares, and understands peoples' potential - and helps you build upon it; there's nothing quite like it." - Scott Belsky, Behance and 99%
"James Victore tells it like he sees it, bringing his highly acclaimed art to life with compelling comments, lively stories and insightful experiences. His wit and wisdom are amazing."
–Gemma Gatti, CEO Portfolio Center
"When all was settled down yesterday evening, my wife looked at me and said, 'You're different. You're happy.' I swear I teared up there and then... And I thank you for changing my future." - J.N., Washington, from the Dinner Series 2011
"I feel intoxicated from all the creative energy, passion and courage that was summoned everyday in Victore's studio. It was a privilage to fail successfully and repeatedly with all of you and I definitely left hungry for more!" -J.Z., Bogota, Colombia, from the Dinner Series 2011
