And all you have to do is follow this link to find a museum of interest, download a pair of free tickets for you and a friend, relative, or colleague, and set of for a day of discovery.  Rarely has the chance to be inspired been so easy!

We win in business and in life when we look for ideas and inspiration in the world around.  And when we commit to spending a day in a great museum.

Cheers and have an exciting weekend of exploration!
