"Sheila gave me the tools to hunt success, and the infrastructure to handle it when it came" Stik, world renowned street artist and author
Most of the conventional productivity advice you'll find in the soft business section simply does not work for creative people. Surprisingly, to date there has not been a single book that addresses the unique organizational challenges t
