Creating Your Theme
As I mentioned in my last article about ‘Creating 2020’ I promised to give you additional information and ideas on creating your Theme for the year. In the past when I’ve shared my own story about my favorite theme, people asked me to put it in writing so others could benefit from it and get inspired to create their own theme. I really hope my story will give you a sense of how much fun taking on a theme can be.
In this article you’re going to get my story as well as “10 Tips on Creating Your Annual Theme.” I truly love the entire process of creating a theme and then spending the year watching it unfold and enjoying the magical impact it has on all aspects of life. <--read more-->

The Cure for “What-is-itis” aka How to Stop the “That’s Just the way that it is” Conversation
I’ve produced/exec produced twelve feature films to date where I’ve worked with hundreds and hundreds of people, and in addition I’ve taught entertainment industry workshops to thousands and thousands of folks over the years.

When the limit was challenged a paradigm shift occurred and within months runners were beating the new record. <--read more-->
