Stay focused, slow it down, present scarcity, and invest in a circular system.
COURAGE. Be courageous to inspire and stand up for the unthinkable, stand up for your view, go with the BIG idea.
AUTHENTICITY. Be original and pure. Don’t underestimate the consumer. Listen and earn their credibility.
CONSISTENCY. Be consistent with quality, communication, and engagement.
ASSERTIVENESS. Be bold, direct, and confident of your vision, your creative abilities.
COMMITMENT. With commitment comes patience. Longevity gives you the pot of gold.
Don’t give them what you think they want; give them what they never thought was possible.
– Orson Welles
