Fear is a part of everyone's creative process, no matter how sparkly the end result. Your goal is not to kill fear off, but to unearth its hidden wisdom and integrate it into a plan of action that fires you up. Here, you’ll find potent, how-to content interspersed with an honest story of public triumph, financial catastrophe and eventual rebirth.
