All problems are opportunities. The bigger the problem the bigger the opportunity.
You teach creativity by getting people out of their comfort zone.
Experimenting is incredibly valuable.
Often we frame problems too tightly.
You need to be able to make your own luck.
Be curious.
Being an entrepreneur isn’t about turning lemons into lemonade–it is about turning lemonade into helicopters. You can make amazing things happen.
Fail fast and frequently.
If you’re not failing sometimes you’re not taking enough risks.
If you want more successes you’re going to have to put up with more failures.
It is okay to fail as long as you learn something from it.
Put yourself in a position where you’re willing to try and try again.
Don’t wait to be anointed.
When you’re getting a job you’re getting the keys to the building.
Success is infectious.
Never miss an opportunity to be fabulous.
Everyday you have to find a way to be fabulous.
Be extremely motivated about solving a problem.
