This is a hangout for creatives to share and explore ideas that create better art and more of it.  This is a place for the daydreamers, artists, musicians, and writers. We are the "round pegs in square holes" who trust intuition and serendipity over rules and dogma and we will never sell out.  We believe art is sacred and life is too short not to follow our passion.  We reject the “starving artist” mentality because we accept our uniqueness and value our creative works that make the world a…See More

Why You Should Set Your Goals According to Your Personality

Posted on July 2, 2013 at 6:00am 4 Comments

 One of the great things about Dan Miller is he stresses that we each have unique personality styles and we need to recognize that and how our personality affects us. 

That is certainly the case with goal setting. my personality profile is says I am a Governor.  My fears are rejection, loss of security and criticism.  My areas of improvement include being able to follow through.  My goals are going to be different from someone like Donald Trump, who has a ton of…


How I Make $2,300/Year by Smiling

Posted on June 20, 2013 at 10:49am 0 Comments

I own and run an office cleaning business that specializes in cleaning office condo's of 3,500 square feet or less.  You know those one story buildings in a business area that has CPA's, Real Estate agents and lawyers in them, with 8 or ten office condo's per building.

Usually they are vacant when I clean on the weekends and the parking lots are empty.  That was always the case except for one of my accounts.  Every weekend one of the offices had a car parked out front.  Sometimes when…


Seven Irrefutable Laws of Creativity

Posted on June 3, 2013 at 5:22pm 2 Comments

1.) Capture it NOW!  Write down or record the idea or the song hook immediately.  If you wait, it is gone forever.  You will not remember it later.  Ideas float on a river.  If you pluck them out of the river you get to keep them.  If you wait, they float away.

 2.)  Ideas come when you are in the present.  There is an old saying, "When you've got one foot in the future and one foot in the…

Over the past 7 years I have not concerned myself with finances much.  If I had rent, gas and food then I just enjoyed my life.  Now I really hunger to move on to a higher level of financial success.  Here is where I am at financially:

4 Magic Words to Transform Your Attitude

Posted on January 5, 2012 at 6:40pm 6 Comments

Several years ago I called a friend of mine for help.  I was going through a rough spot in with my life.  I knew I needed to change my attitude but my mind kept focusing on my problem, which only made things worse.

My friend told 4 words he tells himself that worked to change his attitude and keep him positive.  He said, "I just tell myself, 'I'm living my dream'".  

I started telling myself that and immediately my attitude changed.  I started laughing and thought, yeah,…

Hey Sutton,

Thanks for the friend request.  I'm glad you enjoyed the motorcycle camping site.  It's been back-burnered for awhile but I'm hoping to get back on it this fall.  I think that site has some income generating potential.

Sutton, I keep on running into problems both with recording my songs...generally done straight into iMovie, then converted to an Mp3--and constructing decent songs for fine-tuned listeners. I plug away any way. Next stop, I think, may be a recording studio, hand in hand with a well constructed song. Any advice at this point would be helpful, much appreciated.

Hey Sutton!  Thanks for the friend request.  It was so great to meet you and get to know you a bit at WTB.  Thanks for all the hard work you put in during the event to help make everything just right for all of us and for the "how hot is this stuff" advice!  :-)  So blessed to hear your song and am reading your book now!  Thanks for all that you do to serve so many Sutton!
