My new book: The Heart to Start

December 12, 2017

The Heart to Start is Here credit

You’ve heard the advice before: Just get started.

If you can follow that advice, you absolutely should. Write your first book. Build your first company. Record your first song.

If you’re anything like me, it’s not so easy. You think about everything that could go wrong. You worry it will be a total failure. You can hear everyone laughing at you.

The Books of the Decade

January 02, 2010

While the 00’s are being called a lost decade for the US economy, there’s no doubt that it was a decade of incredible changes in technology, communication, and the way we see the world.
