Math is a struggle for me and my business Featured

Why we struggle in our public schools…

I am reading a very inspirational book by Malcolm Gladwell called "Outliers".

Gladwell's interview sounds like a conversation that I have had with many people about being a creative artist…

"We sometimes think of being good at mathematics as an innate ability. YOu either have 'it' or you don't. But to Schoenfeld, it's not so much ability as ATTITUDE."

Gladwell quotes this math professor, Alan Schoenfeld, from Berkeley, "Success is a function of persistence and doggedness and the willingness to work hard for twenty-two minutes to make sense of something that most people would give up on after thirty seconds."

Testimonials

I am a company that does high end, small run digital printing in the Porland area. 80% of all jobs submitted require manipulation. This is time consuming and adds cost to the client. Inkspot Graphics is in the 20% that goes from email to paper in less than 15 minutes. Mike's artwork is top-notch!
