About David Kord Murray | Today, Dave is the author of Borrowing Brilliance. In the past, however, he’s been an entrepreneur, a scientist, a salesman (selling nuclear weapons), a marketing executive, an innovation leader (for a Fortune 500 software company), a web designer, a CEO, an inventor (he’s got a few patents to his name), a rock climber, skier, a mountaineer (he’s summited Mt. McKinley) , and now a writer. At one point in his career, he made millions of dollars from a single, simple idea; at another point he filed for personal bankruptcy protection (unfortunately, in that order). But failure is temporary, he says, just like success. They’re both part of the creative process, both just different stops on the same journey. And besides, you learn from your mistakes, which means Dave’s learned a lot.
