Ingrid asked “Would you like to live in a polka-dotted house?” YES is my answer! YES! YES! YES!
If you’re a Founder, repeat after me:
1) Raising money is not winning
2) Growth without profit is not winning
3) Exits and liquidity events are not winning
Building a long term, profitable business, that solves a problem you’re deeply passionate about?
That, is winning.

Between April 2016 and January 2017 Martin Markstein carved daily carrots for his 4 year old son’s lunchbox. The initial intention was to make him eat the vegetables, but he apparently began to trade the carrots for “better“ food. One day he wanted that all the kids of his kindergarden group to get a carved carrot, too. So, of course, super dad that he is, Martin ended up carving 23 magic wands, arrows, bows and axes. This is stinking adorable. Also, lunchbox hero!

Completely enamored with I See Rivers since I saw them perform at the Do Lectures a few weeks ago and I have been listening to their tunes nonstop ever since.
My stoop community (aka neighbors) and I are featured in this Mac Premo piece on stairs. Our cameo is at the very end!
Rob Greenfield collected 30 days of trash, living like the average American and then turned the mountain into a suit he could wear. The purpose of this project was to create a memorable visual of how much garbage one American creates. Powerful! It visualizes clearly how much individual actions matter and how much they add up.

When Sue Austin got a power wheelchair, she felt a tremendous sense of freedom — yet others looked at her as though she had lost something. What a moving and inspiring talk. What an inspiring woman!

A big thank you to Allen Gannett for sponsoring my blog and RSS Feed this week.
What if creative genius was a skill to develop, not some mystical thing? The new book, The Creative Curve, combines the latest science on creativity with interviews from everyone from the Broadway team behind Dear Evan Hansen, to the founder of Reddit, from the Chief Content Officer of Netflix to Michelin star chefs.
Using this, author Allen Gannett breaks down how you can enhance and develop your own creative potential.
According to Daniel Pink, the New York Times bestselling author of When and To Sell is Human, “The Creative Curve will take you through the science and practice of creativity so that you can start tapping into your own breakthroughs.”
