“If you’re a thought leader, entrepreneur, or creator-artist with a drive and #goals to make a living with your passion — then this site is for you.”
No, let me change that.
It’s more. It’s creating so that people listen. Growing and developing your ideas.
Dynamically reaching a bigger audience. And supporting yourself doing it.
This is a blog for serious writers and serious creators who have a drive to succeed and, in the process, don’t take themselves too seriously.
Hone the craft and, at the same time, enjoy life.
Do the work. As in, don’t talk. Don’t surf. Sit. Work.
(Stop calling yourself a writer and write.)
(Stop calling yourself an artist and create.)
(Stop calling yourself a speaker and speak.)
(Stop saying you’re going to get that business up and running and do it.)
You get the picture.
Enough whip cracking. We all have lives, and most are quite full, thank you, mine included. (I get that.) But it’s time the creative part of our souls gets its fair share of the day.
Are you a creator? Do you have a story to tell?
Do you have a passion to share?
Do you have a business to launch?
Let’s do it.
What topics are covered here?
Writing how-to. Fiction. Nonfiction. Online and offline.
Entrepreneurial idea-making and business building.
Effective in-person communication. Words. Body language.
Form, content, and passion.
The style is short —
in little, practical pieces. Pieces we can quickly think about and act on.
I’m a believer in life-long learning. I want to be 99 and watching a how-to webcast — or whatever they have in the future — with tattered notebook in hand. To be in the trenches of transformation. Constantly learning with blogs, books, and articles. At conferences and artist hangouts. Reading and watching and listening and trying.
Start here. Read. Then immediately act. Chasing information and staying there is a trap. Yes — stop getting lost in learning and act. Prioritize. Work the steps. Get to your dream.
Oh…and drink coffee.
(Always drink coffee.)
