If the material strikes a cord with you, then I'd recommend you become a member and involve yourself in the 7 module Creative Entrepreneur course: Create (don't compete), Lead (don't manage), Communicate (don't be shy), Automate (don't duplicate), Accelerate (don't stand still), Succeed (don't stress) and Live (don't wait).
