Design Intervention

“Follow Your Bliss” is Brad’s best advice and it’s a concept from Joseph Campbell, a professor of mythology and George Lucas’s mentor. Some business owners focus on the money they want to make, but that’s not the best way to run a business. Instead, start by thinking about the life you want to have and your calling to impact others. Build Your Life and Your Business Around Following Your Bliss.
