Creativity and Selling Your Ideas

One of the few online blogs I subscribe to is “Brain Pickings Weekly” by Maria Popova.

Today, her free newsletter discusses a new book by Daniel Pink in the article, “Ambiverts, Problem-Finders, and the Surprising Secrets of Selling Your Ideas.” There are several good ideas there for creative people.

The piece is at It’s the third article on today’s page.
