Every day is a day for insight, creativity, courage and tenacity.

Home alone, in touch with the world

Find an energizing place to live and work.

Bend, Dallas, San Diego and Santa Fe: What would happen if office parks, strip malls, and shopping malls were to begin incorporating housing within their designs and redesigns? What would happen if we worked and lived in the same building?

We are learning the answers because there is a movement that is growing ever larger and increasingly fast. We seem to be making the circle, back to a pre-industrial lifestyle, but with knowledge tools -- the integration of broadcasting, information (technology), communications, education and publishing -- that challenge us to look deep within ourselves to craft and sculpt our unique gifts to give back to the world.

There are about 17 million sole proprietors in just the USA; they are all unique and most have returned home to work. What would happen if 17 million people were to focus on a common task?

Impossible? Not any more. And most of us who have moved back home to work, believe "Homework is good!" If asked about being lonely, we answer, "There's no time!" With instant messaging, collaboration and webcasts, our offices have become nerve centers that can change the world. Plus we're changing the balance of trade and helping the environment by preserving  precious energy resources.

In this episode of the show, we take a look at nine people who work and live within the same physical space. It has its own special challenges, and we can personally attest to some of them because this show is produced and mostly edited from a studio in our home.

And, every day should stimulate our imagination and motivations.

Entrepreneurs do not wait for somebody else to do it. They just do it themselves. They take on the big challenges and are not afraid that others will think they are stupid, crazy, or simply a fool. It is so much easier to say, "That's impossible" or "That can't be done."

So what are you waiting for? Do you have that special genius?
