Life & Business: Simple Tips For Success by Adam J. Kurtz

by Sabrina Smelko


Adam J. Kurtz (or as some know him, ADAMJK) is an artist and author of the creative journal 1 Page at a Time. He also creates art and creative content for BuzzFeed BFF and is an all-around inspiring, cool dude who’s constantly making and doing. A visit to his Instagram account always results in a snicker. You may remember him from this post where he shared his gleaned wisdom from 2014, and today he’s back to share his 8 — errr, 7 — simple steps for success of any kind, big or small. We so often over-complicate things and create our own barriers, but his tips are refreshingly honest, relevant and act as a swift kick in the bum to do more and be more. Pin away, my friends! —Sabrina
