The 75 techniques in this book will guide you to be more playful and productive as you move through three vital phases of the manifestation process: dreaming (Hop), experimenting (Skip), and taking action (Jump). Discover your Play Personality and learn how to use it to create more experiences in which work feels like play, and struggle gives way to momentum, ease, and joy.

Author Biography

Marney K. Makridakis is the founder of Artella Land, the groundbreaking online community for artists, writers, and creative individuals. Since 2002, Artella has been a creative home to thousands of creative individuals whose dreams have come alive within the isles of Artella's exciting map to creative inspiration and discovery. Marney is a widely known voice in the creativity movement, frequently requested for interviews, guest columns, workshops, and speeches. In addition to publishing Artella magazine, authoring hundreds of online workshops and courses, and classes and workshops virtually and live across the U.S., her first book, Creating Time: Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim Your Life, was published by New World Library in 2012, and hit #1 on Amazon's bestseller lists in several categories.

Marney is also the founder of the ARTbundance approach to self-discovery through creativity. In recent years, Marney has focused on developing special ways to serve creative entrepreneurs. Her Business Boehmia suite for creative entrepreneurs and the ARTbundance Certification Training Program (ACT) are the result of her desire to help creatively minded people design a successful business rooted in true passion, personal joy, and creative meaning.

A graduate of Duke University, Marney playfully hops, skips, and jumps in Dallas, Texas, with her wonderful husband and their wise and adventurous young son, Kai. She names these things as being essential to her creative well-being: the color orange, poetic novels, singing loudly, daily naps, the love of a good man, and hero worship of Mary Poppins.
