Ben Jenkins: Live Slow Work Fast

Join AIGA Nashville as we kick off our programming for 2016! What better way to get things started than a night focused on work-life balance with Ben Jenkins!

Native Texan Ben Jenkins is an American designer, brand strategist, and entrepreneur. He is the founder of the branding company OneFastBuffalo and the sporting goods brand Warstic. A former professional baseball player, Ben spent a decade doing what most design firm and agency owners do. Working. Not much else.

In his talk Ben discusses his thoughts on how creatives might consider dedicating to the long haul of mastering their craft without leaving their spirit, relationships and health behind. Ben presents concepts for learning to focus on what matters in order to free up time to live and work. Learn why the idea of work-life balance is a myth for the creative person. Ben will reveal the difference between living a creative life that mindfully fuels your work and health vs. living the life of a person in the creative industry. For Ben, living #LSMF not only improved his health, it improved the quality of OFB’s work and brought on the most profitable and enjoyable years in OFB’s 17 year history. This also led to things like living & working half time on the road in a vintage Airstream trailer, limiting OFB’s client work season to 9 months per year, and developing his own brands outside of fee-based client work.

Be sure to get your tickets here! We can’t wait to see you Jan. 7th at The Bistro at Emma!
