Order Mark McGuinness’ books at a discount for your creative team
If you’re the leader of a creative team, or the owner of a creative agency or studio, you know how important it is to keep your creatives fired up with enthusiasm for their work.
You also know how challenging it can be to maintain their motivation levels when confronted by the realities of business – the constraints of time and money, and the sometimes brutal rejection and criticism of their work.
One way you can help them to stay creative and resilient under pressure is to give them a book that speaks directly to their situation as creative professionals and which helps them overcome the very particular challenges they face.
The gift of a book is a small but significant way to show you care about their professional development. And if they take the ideas on board, a small investment could help your company (and your clients) reap an outsize creative reward.
This is why I’m making my books for creatives available for bulk discount order by creative agencies, studios and other organisations.
Read on to learn about the books, and to order multiple copies using the form below.

Motivation for Creative People
How to Stay Creative While Gaining Money, Fame, and Reputation
A practical guide to figuring out your different motivations and how they affect your creativity and career.
This book tackles the ‘creativity vs money’ issue head on, and shows that they are not necessarily incompatible – but they do require careful handling if money and other types of reward are not to kill your creativity.
Motivation for Creative People can be a life-changing book for an ambitious creative. It’s also a great book for helping managers and leaders understand the creative mindset – and to help them avoid inadvertently killing their team’s inspiration by trying to ‘incentivize’ creativity with money and other rewards.
Motivation for Creative People will encourage you reflect sincerely on the factors that underpin your artistic achievements, ultimately giving you a ‘clarity of mission’ that will take your creativity to new heights.

Facing Down Rejection and Criticism on the Road to Success
Rejection and criticism are a fact of life for creative professionals.
Resilience explains why it’s almost impossible not to take rejection and criticism of your creative work personally – and what to do about this. It also shows you how to have more constructive conversations about feedback – with your boss, your colleagues and your clients.
Most of all, it will show you how to keep going in the face of rejection and criticism, and how to use them to strengthen your resolve and make your work better.
Resilience is also a great book for managers and leaders who want to give feedback to creatives without crushing their motivation, and to help them make better work more consistently.
Read this book and you will be bulletproof!
