Think Big Manifesto: A Personal Manifesto for Thinking Bigger About Who You Are and What You Offer the World
Most people operate from only a fraction of who they are and what they are capable of. Why? Because it can be confronting to express yourself boldly in the world! The desire for bigness causes problems for people. They don't know how to create it for themselves. They don't think they are capable. They don't think it's possible for them. Even those who are successful need support in thinking even bigger because we are never thinking as big as we possibly can. Michael Port, the leader of The Think Big Revolution and the guy to call when you're tired of thinking small, has his audiences design a Personal Manifesto for thinking bigger about who they are and what they offer the world in an authentic, meaningful, and prosperous way.
The 7 Simple Rules for Producing Remarkable Projects
The building of a business is the successful completion of one project after another. If you want to be successful in business, you have to learn how to produce remarkable projects - projects that other people are able to remark on. Why? Because your projects are your marketing. Remarkable projects will build your identity in the world because you will become known for being able to fulfill certain kinds of offers. You might think of it as reputation building, but it goes further. It's also business building and 'you' building. Remark-able projects are emergent. The future is uncertain; therefore, we can't determine a result - we can only create circumstances for navigating to a result. Michael's seven simple rules for producing remarkable projects help the entrepreneur create circumstances for navigating to remark-able projects.

But after Michael's presentation, they'll be only a few clicks away from hearing the beautiful, melodic, 'ka-ching, ka-ching' sound of their website turned cash register as the orders come rolling in.
