There's a class of people who abandon the safety of comforts of following the crowd, and look to pioneer the world forward through invention, innovation, and creativity.
Marshall's goal is to help you increase your resourcefulness, resources, and have more impact with the resources you've got.
That includes earning well and growing your income, effectively creating working capital, getting the right connections, friends, mentors and allies, staying focused, using your time well, staying on the forefront of science and performance psychology, growing your creativity and creating great works, detoxing from "playing scared", creating a great ethical structure, and living the life you want.

The patterns of the ascent of artists, scientists, statesmen, entrepreneurs, and generals in history are disseminated to you and mixed with practical guidance on key issues so you can earn more, connect more with the people you want to connect with, grow your company, and further the causes you believe in. All the while, thriving.
