Business and the Arts

"Business is creative. It’s like painting. You start with a blank canvas. You can paint anything – anything – and there, right there, is your first problem.

People who bad-mouth businessmen and women in general are missing the point. People in business who succeed have swallowed their fear and have set out to create something special, something to make a difference to people’s lives."

Richard Branson from Mark McGuiness in Lateral Action. Another great blog from Mark. You should sign up to his blog and consider joining his next Creative Entrepreneur Roadmap course.
