S’Well Founder Telling Her Story

Love hearing fellow founders tell their stories. In this case Sarah Krauss, founder of S’well bottles.

I just randomly researched Sarah today and at the very end of this segment you see a custom Tattly for a few seconds. What a fun coincidence! My brand partnered with a brand I love.

Now I am wondering, how do I get a call from one of the Oprah Magazine editors to run an article about Tattly?

Build A Ship

“If you want to build a ship, dont drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast endless sea.”

Life

“Life is a good teacher and a good friend. Things are always in transition, if we could only realize it. Nothing ever sums itself up in the way that we like to dream about. The off-center, in-between state is an ideal situation, a situation in which we don’t get caught and we can open our hearts and minds beyond limit. It’s a very tender, nonaggressive, open-ended state of affairs.”

Choosing Profit

“Having a profitable business doesn’t mean squeezing the lemon for every last bitter drop. It isn’t all or nothing. You can be profitable and generous. Profitable and fair. Profitable and kind. These aren’t opposite ends of some moral spectrum. Quite the contrary.”

Why we choose profit, by Jason Fried
