Rating: 4.5 out of 5.


Creativity is a highly valued skill nowadays, that drives a significant portion of the global social and economic system (sounds strange, isn’t it? But that’s true!). As every other skill, it does not depend on random moments of genius and inspiration, but instead on hard work and a lot of practice, time and dedication. Creatives are mostly guided by a sense of purpose and meaning, which are different for each one of them.

This book comes up with the super useful “Creative Success Now” methodology, which is divided in three fundamental pillars: mindset, authenticity set, and skills.

“Networking is not about “selling” or “getting something”. Instead, it disconnecting with others with whom you are in sync so that you can remain relevant to each other.”
