A few things that have inspired me lately and what I've been working on..
I do love the idea of mentorship, it is a beautiful thing if you can find it in your life. I can relate to the conversation you had with your friend Simon. I get frustrated with my self often and being unable to make ideas happen but it is my fault and the fear of putting my self out there. I need to be more confident.
So many interesting things here, it will take a while to dig in!
