Earl Nightingale talks about the strangest secret in the world; the key to success and the key to failure. Produced in 1956, The Strangest Secret was the first spoken word message to win a Gold Record by selling over a million copies. Though it's a very old recording it has a timeless message and is definitely worth listening to. Sit back, relax, listen and open your mind.

 
 
A brand new Canadian magazine called Off The Map did a feature on me in their Winter 09 Issue - probably the best article ever written about me - if you wanna check it out it's on Page 52 HERE.

Happy holidays!
 
 
Hey everyone, so after some careful thought, research and digging through mountains of photos I've critiqued and viewed over the years - I've come up with my list of fave photos of all time. Take notes, this is some really good stuff your about to see! These photos are in no particular order since they're all amazing in their own right and I couldn't possibly rank them from best to worst. Originally my plan was to write about each photo, but I honestly believe that each one is so strong you won't need me to tell you why it's so good. I hope you enjoy looking through, please feel free to leave some comments. Next month I'm going to launch some more specific top ten lists including: band photos, fashion photos, and wedding photos so keep your eyes peeled for those. Cheers -mv.

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.
