Are you a Creative that has a vision for a better world? Have you conquered your niche and have a vision for aspects within our world that you know you can influence for a better place to live and be? Here is the interview between Kanye West and BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe - maybe you've heard about it or even seen it. By all means take the piss out of the guy; get upset at some of his language and assumptions but when anyone becomes this passionate about the creative side of life give him the opportunity to breathe.

Continuing our series of occasional weather raps… Yo, back up now and give a brother room The roads are wet and you’re about to go #boom— Surrey Police (@SurreyPolice) September 6, 2013
This is no joke - this approach to reach out and engage whilst also requesting assistance for instances like this:
Recognise the description of this burglary suspect? If so, call us on 101 http://t.co/dWV4GXL1pf— Surrey Police (@SurreyPolice) September 5, 2013
This is a recognised format that we see firms from Recruitment companies posting jobs intertwined with jokes, Stock traders using cartoons (pictures) whilst posting results. What would entertain and engage your audience providing the opportunity to drop in a sales message or request for information?

Are we at the beginning of a revolution in spreading positive energy through the work that we do, the people that we meet and the words that we speak - or is this just me?
I have had three conversations with different people in the last two days who are on a mission to change the world. Not only that but with genuine belief that they can and they will.
Meet Kath Temple - an amazing force to be reckoned with; her passion, energy and sheer determination to share the benefits of embracing "The Happiness Foundation"
Kath says: "The Happiness Foundation delivers access to all, inspirational programmes and one-to-one support enabling families, adults, older people and young people to flourish. It proactively promotes the powerful impact of positive psychology and social intelligence.
Happiness has an economy and clearly links with success, productivity, health and longevity. This leads to healthier, happier more successful and more inclusive communities. The Foundation builds personal leadership skills, communication and relationship skills, leading to stronger families, stronger communities with positive lifestyle choices."
Could you do with some of this in your life? Support the phenomenal work that is being done by this not-for-profit organisation; go to their Facebook page and find out more - get in at the beginning, put in a request, say hello or make some suggestions. It's an open door with a little piece of magic inside.

Passion, Creativity and Energy.
I am often asked how do you do what you do?
It's asked by students, people I work with, people I've just met - hell, my own family.
My name is Colin Gilchrist and I love what I do.
Can you say that?
My Twitter BIO says "... if I'm awake I'm working." that of course is not wholly true but I do find it difficult to switch off.
Maybe you don't know me - maybe you do - I have done many things in my life and I will continue to embrace every day but live respectfully and always with others in mind.
I've worked with brands such as Valentino Jeans, Paul Smith and Burberry,
I've won an award for developing a social network that alleviated traffic congestion,
I've spent time in Las Vegas with Zappos.com,
I've been an exhibited artist,
I've produced soundtracks for advertising and short film,
I've been nominated at the Scottish Fashion Awards,
I've been a producer on short film and TV,
I've grafted on the shop floor for companies that included Topshop, Pierre Cardin and Hilditch & Key,
I've provided public speaking presentations for companies that included LinkedIn, the Marketing Industry Network and the University of Edinburgh.
I've been written about on Techcrunch and the Scotland-on-Sunday;
I've appeared on Radio Fourth and Sky TV.
I've been on the main stage at 'T' in the Park in front of 15,000 people with The Proclaimers and invited to a party by Mani from Primal Scream.
I've invested in countless start-up companies, lost a lot and made a little,
I've lived in grand houses and small pads, stayed in magnificent hotels (Old Winter Palace, Luxor - 37th Floor of the Bellagio, Las Vegas to name a couple) and stayed in wee Guest Houses with plastic Chandeliers and stained shower curtains. I'm not materialistic but as with most people appreciate the good things when they're offered.
I believe the role I play in this life is charmed and I've created opportunities for those around me, don't always get it right but with experience we get better.
The essence of this post has come from the new head of Burberry and her recent nervous presentation at a TED confenece - we all have it but are you maximising it?
If you are undertaking a new project or launching a new product I will likely be able to help or at the very least put you in touch with the people that can.
