This Book Will Be a Failure

This book will not sell the same amount of copies as John Grisham or Brene Brown...

But this book will exist.

This book will not promise to change your life in any subtle or major way...

But it just might give you the spark you need. 

This book will not be long, adding unnecessary chapters to justify its existence...

But it will get to the point somehow. 

This book will not feature ground-breaking research from the fields of business and innovation... 

But it will be a work of art by its very nature of having something to say. 

This book will be a failure, but I'm doing it anyways. 

This book is for people who want to move the needle on their creative projects. The 27 micro-essays within tackle issues around social media overload, finding time to get work done while working jobs, and finding actionable strategies for fleshing out ideas and assigning value to them, I pulled out all the stops on this one.
