    Internationally best-selling author of Last of the Amazons, Gates of Fire and Tides of War, Steven Pressfield delivers a guide to inspire and support those who struggle to express their creativity. Pressfield believes that “resistance” is the greatest enemy, and he offers many unique and helpful ways to overcome it.

    When I am being overwhelmed by the resistance so I read/listen to the book again. Would that be considered yielding to the Resistance? Either way it is a great book. A must listen!!

  • Wisdom Meets Passion: When Generations Collide and Collaborate

    Wisdom without passion is a Ferrari with no gas in the tank. Passion without wisdom is a tricked-out 57 Chevy with no steering wheel. Baby Boomers have relied on wisdom to pave the way to success. Education, knowledge, investing strategies, 401(k)s, real estate leverage, and carefully contrived career paths were expected to lead to success in the golden years. Seeing the overall failure of that formulaic approach to life, younger generations today have relied on passion as the guiding principle for their version of success.

    Have you listened to any of Dan Miller and Jared Angaza ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All of Dan's works are terrific and thought provoking.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone would find help and encouragement from Dan's books as well as his 48Days podcast.

    Ben Stein's experience from Washington to Hollywood -and everywhere in between - makes him the ideal individual to offer advice to others. His expertise in countless fields make his valuable, keen observations - that cover the range of topics and challenges that most people face every day - the perfect topic for his book, What Would Ben Stein Do? It's a question we'd all be wise to ask ourselves when contemplating an array of issues in both business and life.

    A little preachy, but still a good book. Thankfully Mr. Stein only reads epilogue.
