How often have you had a great idea, yet found yourself staring at your computer or a blank sheet of paper, asking… “Where do I begin?”
We’ve all been there with our million dollar ideas, best-selling novels, and major motion pictures, stuck deep within us, screaming to get out. What about that great invention, sketched up and tossed aside. That’s all too often where our dreams end. Not knowing where to go next, we stop dead in our tracks, set our dreams aside, and later saying “I should have followed through with my big dream years ago!”
DREAM TO LAUNCH was written and designed for dreamers and visionaries — those of you who desire to take action to make your big dreams real. As a guide and resource, each chapter includes processes and creative solutions, valuable stories, and lessons, specially created to shorten the distance from proverbial “cocktail napkin” to a finished product. Our processes will take you from start to finish by breaking everything down into manageable steps while covering important topics like writing, design, aesthetics, mentors, mind mapping, marketing, and more. We’ll show you how to get through the dreaming stage, to action planning, to creating your personalized blueprint and strategies for achieving your dreams.
I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.

As my mind can conceive of more good, the barriers and blocks dissolve. My life becomes full of little miracles popping up out of the blue.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.
