GIVE THE GIFT OF SEMI-RAD
By Paul Strubell of Dirt Orcas – 12/2/16
As some of you know, we recently did a give away for Brendan Leonard’s book, 60 Meters to Anywhere.
The Semi-Rad.com creator has released another book just in time for the holidays.
After having the opportunity to speak with Brendan, I was privileged enough to also receive a copy of his new book, Make it till you make it: 40 Myths and Truths about Creating.
With Make it Till you Make it, Brendan has created a quick little guide to finding motivation to create, that can easily be read all at once, but it is conveniently broken up into forty small little reminders that can be ingested in small doses. Therefor, I think it would make an excellent gift for the creative person in your life.
It speaks directly to the creative soul about the importance of continuing to create, whatever your medium may be. It’s filled with anecdotal reminders, pop culture references, and real tales of perseverance to inspire and remind the reader about the trails that come with trying to make money off your own creativity.
As a person who has recently launched a creative product with the goal of making money at it some day, this book was exactly what I needed to read. I also know that I am not alone.

Additionally, if you missed this video about the great Frank Sanders and Devil’s Tower Climbing, I have shared it below. Frank is a legendary dude and the story of how I met Frank will have to wait for another time, but this will give you a glimpse into his world. Brendan had a part in producing this video.
