This is my favorite way of living life; via example. I believe in excellence in self, and also by celebrating the strengths of those around me. It is magic made in this moment. Teams are solidified, leaders are empowered through their own behavior, communities are lifted. "Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens." Carl Jung Taken a step further, once you are awakened, you can only then use this to create an awakening in those around you.

Creativity Can Be Messy

Content Generation, Ideation, Irresistible, Marketing
During a dinner party the other night, my kitchen was unrecognizable. I had at least 17 ingredients for homemade pizzas scattered over every surface: pineapple and ham on countertop one; cheese, peppers, olives, tomatoes, and mushrooms on two; pepperoni, spinach, fresh mozzarella on three; sausage and onions simmering on the stove; and a grand total of three pizza dough and sauce stations. It was magnificent! We had 16 people over, and one of the little guys, 8 yr old Eric, got to hand-throw his dough for the first time in his life.

Developing Your Own Creative Genius- And Changing Our World

You can't say it like, "Chai Tea," because in Hindi, chai means tea. "Hello friend, would you care for some delicious Tea Tea." Sure, pass me two cups of whatever you're serving! In India, its simple: grated fresh ginger, cardamom pods, black tea, milk, and honey. In my kitchen, in addition to those ingredients, I like to add cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, and if I'm feeling a little mischievous (which is often), I add cacao nibs. This is what I have deemed 'great chai'. There are recipes for other 'great' things, like being a great fisherman, mother, writer, entrepreneur, seamstress. In fact, for every profession out there, you can find some semblance of rules about what it takes to be great at that thing. What's Missing??? A simple rule book…
