It appears that it is the topic that will not…Continue

Though the article lists three pieces of advice for entrepreneurs, it struck a cord in me. A resounding echo that could be solid advice for artists and makers. Each one builds on the other.…
I listen to Charlie Rose every day I often find the speakers inspiring. These are the smartest, hardest working and usually, most articulate people in the world able to bring ideas and introspection to the plain wooden table of Charlie Rose.
Today, I want to share a couple of thoughts that may be helpful to artists and makers. Of …Continue
