I shop. All the time. I love to go to the grocery store. It’s my place filled with my people. Perhaps I should feel uncertainty and angst about being surrounded by people I don’t know. However, that’s not my headspace.
I live vicariously through the daily updates I receive from grocery store employees. They share excerpts of their lives and families. I reciprocate and I consider them friends.
While I shop, I reflect on what I treasure most: sitting down with my family and listening to their thoughts and feelings. The dinner table, that is where the magic happens.
Two pieces of collective advice to share that pertain to life, and marketing.
Turn Strangers into Friends
If I don’t know them, I will get to know them. Legendary designer and creative Mike Quon visited Wichita many years ago to speak at the Wichita AIGA event and I had the honor of driving him around for the day.
Mike Quon is humble, especially given everything he’s accomplished.
More than any of his success, though – is a piece of advice that he shared with me. It goes something like this: talk to five people you don’t know, every day. Life is about connecting with others.
Don’t Let Desperation Make Decisions for You
When you’re looking for help with marketing, design, websites, software or apps, take your time!
Creative agencies are all different. For instance, we refer quite a few people we meet to other agencies based on the approach that is right for their needs.
More than anything else, understand that the value of an investment grows over time. Nurturing a plant yields significantly more fruit.
