We had the opportunity / privilege to attend this event on Friday and it was really an eye-opener. You met people around the world who believe in creative ideas that could change the world for the better.
I'm not going to talk about everything that I learnt (there were just too many valuable infos but these were related to us) but the important points that were mentioned a few times were:
1. just do whatever you are passionate about...don't be scared to fail...if you fail, then keep trying...if you don't keep trying, you'll never taste success
2. be hungry...there's no ending in learning new things from around the world...it was so amazing to see these big shots learnt from one another (even the big shots learnt from one another)...
3. good creative ideas could really change the world...and these ideas should be driven by human's insights
4. making money is secondary (initially) because in the later part you'll be making lots of money if you never gave up your passion...
And we had the chance to meet Jeff Staple! This is the real man who has always been following his passion...and he started everything by making t-shirts then the rest was just history. Listening to his journey was priceless...especially because of the fact that we just started our own t-shirt label and listening to him really enabled us to dream big and go all the way without doubt...and for now, we're just doing what we had learnt from the conference so that someday, when our time has come, we could play our part in shaping a better world...
peace and love,
