Best of 2012

Year 2012 started with a  wish for you.’

It was my best year yet.

I did things that I love to do, met some incredible people, and gained clarity about which path to take.

I also launched new projects, continued my experiments, and more of you joined my  email list. I  also with joy in my heart helped people (not as many as I wanted) to grow their business and find clarity in life.

More people joined team  Metadoor.  [Side note: We are hiring – so if you are a blogger, programmer, web developer or a design ninja – and are proud of your work – send your links and notes to mail @]

2013 is going to be even better. For now .. here is a rundown of my favorite posts from 2012.
