Mary Lucus-Flannery of The Art of Story Project
Mary is a writer, musician, public speaker, and a life-long creator.
Mary’s training in marketing and sales began early. She remembers going door to door with a red wagon full of sweet corn at age 10, looking to make a little extra cash and deliver delicious sweet corn to people who *totally* were psyched to see a kid selling shit right at their front door. The good news: Mary saw that a “no” is not a bad thing. Which lead to her willingness to be a total weirdo.
Mary went to school to become a writer (BA at UW-Madison). She went on to get tons of jobs in marketing and sales and communication, from waitress to traveling recruiter. Then, quite weirdly, she became a chiropractor and a small business owner. But even as Mary moved into the entrepreneurial space, she was always creating: classes, seminars, blogs and podcasts.
Mary believes that we are all always selling, especially creatives. We sell our ideas, our art, and our ability to solve problems that no one else even sees. Mary’s skill set in in the intersection of the act of creation and putting that creation to practical use.
And she is willing to be an idiot in public.
Mary’s super powers include:
- curating and gathering hella piles of information and resources
- building systems and hacks to make creative projects usable/useful
- making up words that totally make sense
