Use October to assert your independence. Launching a creative project, business, or blog will be empowering. You're tired of keeping your ideas secret. Sharing them with the world will be a great use of your leadership ability. Beware of lashing out at critics. A few people will have valuable advice for improving your efforts. You can turn a good venture into a great one by taking their suggestions. Resist the temptation to denigrate rivals. It makes you look like a bad sport and insecure competitor. You have the chance to be the best in your field, but it will require tact as well as cunning.
