Selling a product is not about reinventing the wheel. It is about meeting the needs and demands of people in your niche.
In my career, I have seen hundreds of very talented independent artists give up after years of struggle. Why? Because they refused to leave their creativity where it belongs when it was time to sell their products.
Successful professionals certainly know how to use creativity well. However, they are also aware of the fact that creativity can be a marketing…Continue

The Total Sum
Take the total sum of your existence
Take the total sum of your life experiences
Measure them against a blue sky
Measure them against an ocean wide
Measure them against your principles
Measure them against the weight of the world
In this vast equation
Find the breakeven point
Solve for the…Continue
The road was steep and narrow —
not an easy one to challenge,
to jump over slippery stones
and run, always run, don’t walk!
And though the stream was shallow
I tired... but didn’t let go — I quickened the pace,
and it was the running,
the constant zigzagging motion
that outfoxed them all
turning me into a crafty and agile deceiver.
Ah... but I tired. One day I tired,
and I paused to rest,
to breathe, to sleep a while and…
WE BYPASSED THE NEXT EVENT ON THE CIRCUIT, the Pikes Peak Hill climb, a twelve-mile, one car at a time timed dash up a hill. The next event, the Hoosier Grand Prix at Indianapolis Raceway Park, was three weeks later. Unfortunately for me, that left me far too much time to lose myself…Continue

In 2006 I published this book for the first time, and I'm proud to say that this is the fourth edition of The Relation between Formal Science and Natural Science. In this book, I use Edmund Husserl's philosophy of logic and mathematics, as well as his semantic doctrine, in order to understand the nature of formal sciences. It posits the existence of ideal meanings and mathematical objects, which are themselves a condition of…Continue

When winter threatens,
and your steps falter
on the icy ground,
the warmth of home allures
with peace and love and the flavor
of everything you’ve been.
and still are.
Side by side
hand in hand
life giving life.
A warmth intense enough,
to kept the flame alive.
from winter, to winter, to winter.
Tango Para Mis Padres
Cuando el frío amedrenta
y en la…Continue
