OK. Write something every day. Set aside 10 minutes. Most likely the more you write the more time you’ll want to put aside.

This book is about growing up, trust and family. But most of all it is about success, adventure that comes when you have the ‘space to speak’. Grit and determination are the secret ingredient.
