Description

"Designed to Go The Distance" touches upon many career and lifestyle issues specific to those in creative career fields – cultural topics that are not often talked about or adequately prepared for.

Think of this book more as a late-night barstool or coffeehouse conversation between two creatives. A creative “pep talk” so-to-speak. And just like any pep talk in life, the objective in these pages is to provide a healthy serving of food-for-thought, and perhaps a few tips along the way, too.

The perfect addition to the creative professional’s bookshelf, or even for non-creatives who need to understand the mentality and culture more in-depth, Designed to Go The Distance is sure to be an engaging and informative read.
