To Go Where Your VisionPoints, a few inspiration points for you and your business.

Entrepreneurs are not the ones with the best ideas, they’re just the ones willing to jump off a cliff without the answers.
—Andrew Weinreich, creator of SixDegrees, quoted in Focusing Just A Few Yards Ahead at the American Express OPEN Forum

We’ve all had great ideas come to us from time to time. Some folks will sit around for hours and tell you in hushed tones about all the ideas they’re going to get started on “some day,” and if you listen, some of them do sound pretty amazing.

So what happens to those ideas?

Never be afraid of someone stealing your ideas. Heck, if you want to go ahead and steal off a list of someone else’s ideas. (I printed out that list and wrote dozens of promotion and Experience Design ideas all over it, by the way. Very cool, thought-provoking list.) Because it isn’t about the ideas, even the great ones.

It’s about you.

Are you willing to jump off the cliff?


Grow and be well,
