Hall of fame

The process oriented to build those products or services will be loved by millions of people, can be long and complex. It’s necessary to feed your own body and soul periodically with enough gasoline to make it possible, or at least enjoying the journey. What I am proposing here is a resources compendium could be helpful for your mind in order to enter the open mode and maximize creative process. My recipe is clear: lots of laugh mixed with high doses of literary, TV and film quality, seasoned with a dash of motivation. Enjoy as much as I’ve done using them.
