In addition to being a writer, I'm also an inventor and an entrepreneur. The business I created and own is called DrawSuccess. I haven't talked about it much because I put it on hold before I moved here and I honestly had (and still have) no idea what will happen with it.
I do know that it's something I put enormous blood, sweat and tears – and immense love – into. It's one of, if not the, greatest accomplishments of my life. It's certainly one that I put the most hours into.
If you read Malcolm Gladwell's book Outliers, he asserts that in order to be an "expert" at something, it takes 10,000 hours of diligence. So, in that way, I'm certainly an expert.
Beyond the time invested, however, there's immense original intellectual property in the business. Things that I can confidently say that no one on earth has ever ventured or accomplished.
Still, it lays in wait.
I honestly have no idea. I would like to see it come back to life. Especially DrawSuccess 4 Students with it's powerful anti-bullying program.
DrawSuccess is my baby. I just know I wasn't meant to raise it myself. It needs someone with the right passion and excitement and connections to make it happen.
In the meantime, I've spent the last 2+ days updating the website. (This explains another reason why I haven't written in the blog). After dozens of attempts, I think I finally got it right. Check it out.
