If you don’t have something unique, you have nothing

This is not photoshop.  It is an actual sculpture and it symbolizes my mantra as a writer: “If you do not have something unique, you have nothing.” For the past century, the key to success was to ‘stay within the envelope.’ You had to be ‘normal’ to keep your job and being different was ‘pushing the envelope.’ Now, in this age of Artificial Intelligence, the envelope is gone. With the power of the internet, there is no ‘normal.’ Unique products do not have to fight for a place on grocery store shelves. Online buyers are looking for them. Speaking as a writer, the world does not need another book on the Civil War or a retired detective fighting alcoholism, going through a bitter divorce and being called for ‘the biggest case of his/her career.’  The world wants different.  If you can produce ‘different,’ success belongs to YOU!
