To make the world a better place I can do that through two things: Better business and better design.
Create a business that has meaning because that's what people will connect with.
Create real relationships not just virtual ones.
Decide what you stand for, don't just take it from a marketing manual.
Maybe none of us will cure cancer (or maybe you will) but if you can bring some positivity into your own life and the lives of those around you that's a really great thing.
The period of growth is the most difficult time - Harder than starting the business and getting it off of the ground. It's a time when the backyard pioneers shine and the copycats fade away.
It's important to have a filter to understand what's relevant advice and what's not so relevant.
You can't please everybody and you shouldn't try.
The brand was very much me. The core values of the business, the story, the guiding principles — They're all very personal and all based on my own story and values.
That perfect moment just doesn't exist and never comes. Just jump in!
Have goals and aspirations that are uniquely yours.
Choose a path that is only yours and choose it with confidence.
We all have the power to be backyard pioneers (the unsung pioneers, the little guys) in the context of small business.
Having a small business can be a really isolating experience so having a support system is important.
Your pay reflects your self-worth.
Working for free devalues the idea that creative work is work.
If you do work unpaid, be selective about it.
Clients get what they pay for but creatives get what we sign up for.
I'm doing my best to haul ass one thing instead of half ass a bunch of things
