“Your goal should be to work in perpetuity with Wow people, on Wow Projects, for Wowable clients.”  Tom Peters

“Interesting work is more fun than fun.” Noel Coward

“Pursue something so important that even if you fail, the world is better off with you having tried.” Tim O’Reilly

“Market your genius, leverage your paradox” Gina Rudan
