What's the formula for blog posts that will get the greatest number of retweets? Which new product or service will make you the most money? Do you know?

Your best idea

“The truth is that nobody knows for sure what's going to work. If they did the J.K. Rowlings of this world wouldn’t get rejected by twelve publishers. There is no cast iron guarantee, no secret formula. There is no map to your success.

“This means that you are the map maker. You are responsible for shaping your journey and creating your own success. I know many inspirational entrepreneurs and creative business owners who have done just that and I wanted you to hear some of their stories.

“So today I’m sharing a beautiful book with you that’s been six months in the making.”
— Bernadette Jiwa
