In the sea of marketing it is really hard to stay afloat. There are so many experts, and so much advice. Everyone has a right solution, the right tools, the right suggestions, and the right support. Instead of greater clarity the sky grows darker, the winds become gusty and the swell is growing.

I need a map that will guide me, and skills that will keep me on course. How am I going to survive the blowing winds of disappointment? How am I gong to find direction in the darkness? How am I going to pull through the storm? In the vastness of the ocean it is easy to lose hope. I can’t control the wind.
But I know that staying on course, as the winds change, is only possible if I develop the necessary sailing skills. I need to harness the power of the wind. I want to know how to transform the night sky into my personal road map. I need to know how to set a sail to find my way to a place where days are warm and the sea is calm.
