The Principles of MHD

No secrets

If you have a question about anything involving creative business, I’ll give you my best answer. If I don’t feel qualified to help you, I’ll direct you someone who is.

No competition

According to Google, as of 2013, there are 7.125 billion people in the world, and to me, that means there’s plenty of business to go around. There’s no harm in all of us being awesome.

No finish line

I believe in being a constant work in progress. Aim for daily improvement, and celebrate every small victory along the way.
