Insight On Business the News Hour

New Book: A Quarter Million Steps by Anthony Paustian

Our friend and leading creativity thinker Dr. Anthony Paustian will release his new book A Quarter Million Steps - Creativity, Imagination & Leading Transformative Change in May but we got him BEFORE the book is public. Here we talk about how, in many areas even with all the personal technology, there is a lack of the stuff that made the Apollo space program so successful and transformed the way we live today. It is not only a book about our amazing history it is also a book about the many small steps it takes to create success in life. We'd tell you more but...you should just listen!  To Pre-Order the book, with signatures of Dr. Paustian and Apollo Astronaut Al Worden head to this link!
