Creating Begins with What If

Creation Begins with “What If?”

The thing about What if is that it’s the beginning of…everything. Every successful entrepreneur asks, What if? Every inventor, every teacher, and every person who creates asks, what if?

Then there are the people who nurture people, often (but not limited to) those people who create people, parents we call them, so many what ifs….

What ifs that keep you up at night. What ifs that you celebrate. What ifs you didn’t even think of…

From before our children are even born until forever.

In advocacy we encourage others to think

So down he goes, one step at a time.

I can hear him, as I sit reading blogs and perusing Twitter. I hear him say MarcusLand in a just over whisper. The voice he has when he's forming an idea.

Then, "Hey Mardra-"
