Unique, Discounted Products to Unleash Your Creative Mojo


If you are looking for a simple, engaging, inexpensive way to increase your odds of succeeding with your most inspired venture, I may have exactly what you need.

What previously I sold only to forward thinking organizations, I am now making available to the general public. Why? Because, post-COVID, I've decided to focus my efforts on individuals, schools, and entrepreneurs instead of corporations.

My creativity-sparking materials are time-tested, easy to use, and get results. Plus, 10% of all profits will be donated to Prem Rawat's humanitarian foundation.


Free the Genie: a deck of 55 creative thinking cards that spark big, bold ideas while shrinking the time between your ideas and their manifestation. Free the Genie has been used at 90% of these organizations. I am discounting my Free the Genie decks by 50 percent -- reducing the price from $49.00 to $24.50. Such a deal.

It's AHAhappening: A set of four, 16-page "fill-in-the-blank" guidebooks designed to help aspiring innovators get clear-headed, out of the box and make a quantum leap towards their heart's desire. NOTE: We are currently sold out of "Qualities of an Innovator", but the other four guidebooks are very much available. Only sold as a bundle of four: $24

Free the Genie and It's AHAppening Bundled Together: $42.00 (includes, at no extra cost, five online Self-Inquiry pages from my Year of Living Creatively course.

-- Shipping & handling in the US for single sets: $10

SELF-INQUIRY PAGES: How to Unleash Your Creative Mojo


One of the reasons why aspiring entrepreneurs, writers, artists, musicians and other cultural creatives struggle is because they routinely run into obstacles (inner and outer) that derail them. But it doesn't have to be that way.

Sometimes all that's needed for a creative person to get unstuck is a few minutes of reflection, ideation, and a change of mindset.

That's what Idea Champions' online, self-inquiry pages are all about.

Created by Idea Champions' co-Founder, Mitch Ditkoff, self-inquiry pages are a kind of chiropractic adjustment for your creative mojo.
