Whether we’re laid off from a job, growing a family, or moving to a new city, life often requires us to reinvent ourselves or switch paths. Making that successful transition, however, can be challenging due to our fear of failure or our inability to take action. After years of dreaming, training and good fortune, Peter Himmelman became an Emmy- and Grammy-nominated musician, songwriter and performer. But when the music industry hit hard times, he was forced to reinvent himself at age 52. While Himmelman developed exciting ideas of what he wanted to do, he also thought that’s impossible or how unrealistic. It took him two years to actually stop mulling and start doing.

Having made a living in the trenches of the creative world for the last thirty-five years, first as a musician and now as a top speaker and consultant on creativity and leadership for businesses around the world through his company Big Muse, Peter Himmelman knows first-hand both the pitfalls and triumphs of what goes into turning endless pondering into actual innovative achievement. In his forthcoming release LET ME OUT: Unlock Your Creative Mind and Bring Your Ideas to Life, he combines proven cognitive methods with his own unique artistic techniques to unite and convert left and right-brained thinking into action. Readers learn new ways to:

Reduce fear as a means to becoming more creative;

Create with purpose, whether it's an ad campaign, a song, or a new business;

Communicate more effectively and on a deeper level;

Complete worthwhile projects that have stayed in the "bits and pieces" phase forever

LET ME OUT tackles the fact that our greatest barrier to entry is often ourselves. For those who think starting a new path is unrealistic, this book provides practical tools and insights to make our creative goals take shape in the real world.
