Tyler Deeb of Misc. Goods Co. shares his experience and mantra to work hard, don’t chase the glory, and be satisfied.

About the speaker

Tyler Deeb is an art director, designer & founder of Misc. Goods Co and a Louisville native. The time in which Misc. Goods Co was thought up — did not revolve around a time of dreaming or conceptualizing. It didn’t occur in a conversation among friends and, in turn, become a life goal. The MGCO products and brand came about by circumstance; by positioning my professional life in such a way that it could bend and shift; changing as the opportunity came and being ready to put my hand to the plow when it did. This opportunity came in the form of a monstrously successful Kickstarter campaign. Misc. Goods Co quickly drew national attention and was featured on sites like Uncrate, Fast Co. Design, Monocle Magazine and many others.

    One of my favorite quotes from any of the speakers I have heard thus far, "Working hard isn't just about feeling good about yourself; it's about honoring the people that are depending on you." — Tyler Deeb

    "It's not a 'rich' or 'poor' thing. It's a YOU thing." So many people complain or blame their problems on someone or something else. I like what he mentioned about working hard and just being satisfied. Work when it's time to work - put it down when it's time to LIVE. Great talk Tyler.
