On October 3, 2013 By

I think for me what has worked best for being with children: is to always respect them. Never to think of them as too young or too old, but to accept them as a human being and do my best to talk as an equal with respect to another human soul.

To work with them, [...]

To be human is embrace your nature as a story. The core of every story always contains a seed of a flaw to drive the story onward.

The Trends of Life

On July 18, 2013 By

You can do more than chase daydreams… but it requires your own action to swim out of the riptides of fear.

I professionally help people transform. I watch, listen and follow all the various social trends and of course I pay attention to what people are doing. I need to in order to better help [...]
