WDS: Where You Go to Find, Learn, Celebrate & Act – World Domination Summit 2014

A few years ago, my close friend (and once my boss) Tim told me about The Art of Non-Conformity, Chris Guillebeau's first book. And what a gift that telling me was. As I read this empathetic, active manual I learned about Chris, his process, projects and community. I knew that he was one of the people I refer to as an angel in people's clothing. And he displays this perfectly just by being who he is at World Domination Summit. World Domination Summit (aka WDS) is, in brief, an experience rooted in Community, Adventure and Service (capitals intended) for those…

Follow Your Heart, Follow Your Head…THAT is Success

I went to the jukebox and programmed it to play the entire album. Twice. To this day, that album is one of my favorites and my foundation of what I call experiential music.

These men perform acoustically and each is a singer…

New Season Means Amazing Music – Autumn ’11 Greatness

W e're officially in October and autumn is my favorite season. I mean, I love spring and the lush joy of spring doesn't last that long. Autumn, however, goes for weeks. From the crisp chill to the change of leaves to the apple picking to the ways the sunset looks different to the amazing concerts that happen once we're in a new school year. And I saw two such spectacular shows within the last week and a half. If you aren't familiar with these artists, please become familiar. Van Hunt. José James. Remember these names. Van Hunt Van Hunt, The…

Being Normal Matters Far Less Than Being Courageous

T hose of us tapped by the entrepreneurial spirit have a series of challenges facing us. Not the least of these is how to finance the dream project, the company, the idea. Kickstarter does everyone a service providing not only initial investment opportunities (thanks to the contributions of people around the world) as well as access to a series of entrepreneurs' creativity and invention. Ben Bisbee is such an innovator. His book, The Underground Flower, is smartly written by Ben and beautifully illustrated by artist Carolyn Hayes. And while it appears to be a book for children, and is titled that way,…
