Where inspiration comes from

inspiring-quotes-for-entrepreneurs14I recently came back from teaching The Quest For Inspiration at the Rancho La Puerta spa in Mexico.  I realize that being transparent and authentic  is where the magic happens.  Just walking into a room and being utterly yourself is harder than playing a role.  When I teach this workshop in the corporate world, I try to gently get my students out of their comfort zone.  I believe the only time you really learn anything is when you are sitting a little bit “at the edge of your seat” wondering what will happen next.

Wise Words To A Young Artist


Scan 34I found this letter buried in my garage.  It was written by Jack Keller in NH.  He was my business advisor back in the early 1990’s as I just started McGuirk’s Quirks Design Company.  He believed in me so much.  He gave me so much encouragement during a time when I bravely started to make a living as an artist.  If it wasn’t for him, I probably would have given up.  I love what he wrote in this letter.  Wise words to always remember.
