*Book: The War of Art - a mind-morpher I use every day. Helps you bust through hidden roadblocks to make real ground on any creative project/endeavor, including just moving forward in life in general. Basically, it shows you how to get out of your own way. If you're in creative quicksand & can't figure out why you're not moving forward, then this is the book for you. It's a dream-saver.
Gary Vaynerchuk - (my biggest living hero) entrepreneur & social media maverick who preaches hustle, empathy, & gratitude. He's a motivational kick in the ass who's impacted my life in SUCH a massive way! If you need to hustle harder, check your perspective, or be a kinder human (& don't mind straight talk or colorful language), he's your guy. More business-oriented, but still great all-around. This dude = my jetfuel.
John Gray - Part pastor, part stand-up comedian, he delivers humor, faith, truth bombs, & super-charged messages with his incredible gift. If you need a word from The Man Upstairs, listen up, you'll get one here.
