Excellent interview. 16 minutes long. Enjoy.
Researching the title “business savvy”, and releasing it doesn’t necessarily describe what people do differently with “savvy” rather than without. Dr. Raymond R. Reilly of the Ross School of Business (University of Michigan) and Dr. Gregory P.

Very excited! Saw the first cut of the new video I filmed today. Still in its ‘raw’ state, obviously needs dressing - graphics, perhaps a soundtrack, etc but even so Jonathan Crane of Perpetual Films has done a fantastic first job (I’ll be working with him again). Will let you know when the video is up and rocking. Boogie boogie!

"Your True Voice" (Part 6): Purpose
Money is a very important and vital component for living a comfortable life, though it’s not the most important. Time - each moment of every day, is a gift that is offered once, and when it’s gone, it really is gone. Hence, time is your most valuable asset. However, there is a caveat…the quality of return you can expect to get back from time investment is also naturally affected...

"Your True Voice" Part 5: Courage.
To be successful in the arts as a performer or creative you need bags of courage! Whilst some might mistake courage for loudness and physical strength, it’s the opposite. Real courage is about having the ability to stand up for what you do even when you feel you can’t. It’s speaking when you fear no one will listen. It’s carrying on when you feel like giving up. Finding your true voice is about...
