Business and Leadership  
Survival Is Not Enough. Zooming, Evolution, and the Future of Your Company by Seth Godin
In two words Leverage Explained! The author gives clear cut examples of the importance of embracing change as a important vehicle to evolve. With everything changing at lightening speed around us. . . the only companies to thrive, not just survive will be the ones who incorporate a corporate culture that embraces and rewards change. His buzz word zoom . . . is reflective of the pace companies need to move at. He also speaks of zooming with integrity. Zooming too quickly without thought could lead to chaos. Seth is clear about empowering people and rewarding them for creativity. It is those moments of creativity that lead to brilliant ideas and solutions that can zoom a company forward. His concept of responding to fast feedback from others makes a great deal of sense. Many entrepreneurs fall in love with their own ideas and remain in love with them regardless of what the market is begging and pleading for. Responding to the market place quickly will set you ahead of the competition. There are thought provoking questions at the end of the book that are guaranteed to open up a dialogue for change, evolving and zooming to the top. I challenge you to ask the questions at your next meeting!

Marry Your Muse- Making A Lasting Commitment To Your Creativity by Jan Phillips

I recently met Jan at a seminar and she was absolutely amazing. I highly recommend her book and her work. This is a book about deepening your relationship with your Creative Spirit. Your Muse is alive within you bursting to come out. Imagine that Spirit is seeking to create through you, to regenerate itself into culture. Don¹t doubt that you are born to create. Do not believe for a minute that the realm of art belongs to others. Don't believe what you have been told or think you heard: that you are incapable, unimaginative, not artistic. This is ridiculous, as it denies your potential to create which is your birthright. I have heard many people say that they cannot even draw a straight line. Being creative has nothing to do with drawing straight lines! If you have believed these things and woven your life from this doubt and fear, stop and look within. Look within and find what brings you joy and go there for your creating. That is your place to move with the Spirit. Your Muse lingers near the home of your joy and opens the door to effortless manifestation! Her website is also very inspiring:
