Control Your Environment

“Create the space so you can control it.” — Dame Dash

Our focus this week is on “controlling your own environment.” When we talk about controlling your environment, we basically mean being your own boss and keying in on what you have full control of. If you are around negative people, remove yourself from their presence. If you are in a workplace where you find discomfort everyday, take a break from
working for someone and focus on your dream. When we take full control of the things we want our life to be surrounded by, our true happiness comes into full effect. In addition, we make smarter decisions and take those calculated risk that will benefit us on the long run.

Coming across the hustler Dame Dash interview, he presented a powerful message saying, “You create the space so you can control it…the same sh*t they doing for somebody else, do it for yourself.” Those sentences should echo in your brain each and every day to remind you what your driving towards. Get paid to be yourself…  


Execution

“Strategy without execution is hallucination” — Forbes

Our focus this week is on “execution.” In order to have your business at a substantial growth, each task must be executed and delivered to your audience. Execution is so important because it separates the men from the children, or in other words, the hustlers from the BS’ers. While showing the progress of your next big idea and capitalizing on it,
you will continue to build a network of peers that would love to collaborate or invest into your business because they’re informed that you tale your career to heart.

We all understand that everybody loves to talk about it (since it’s so easy to do) rather than be about it. So don’t be the individual that doesn’t have a resume to show your investors where you’ve came from, how far you‘ve gotten, and where you plan on going. Continue to think, strategize and execute on all ideas and show yourself why you belong here.      


Endurance

Our focus this week is on “endurance.” Barely any profound business blows up over night, especially if it‘s fashion oriented. The late nights and early morning workshops are the main core and story-line behind the final outcomes that we display to our audience. That endurance is so important to be documented so people, family and kids know where you‘ve begun and how far you’ve become: we are enduring through our creative ideas and road bumps, we need to believe that we are going to stamp an impact in our field build lifelong relationships with our clients.

An important message from the legendary Rei Kawakubo once said, “This is the rule I always give myself: that nothing can come from a situation that involves being free or that doesn’t involve suffering.” So continue to remain persistent and show the world why you were put on this earth. 


You Are Still Alive

“You Are Still Alive” - Button Poetry

Our focus this week is remembering that, “You are still alive.” While watching this inspirational Video one morning, titled ‘You Are Still Alive’ by Button Poetry Via Facebook, I thought a lot about how people tend to focus on failures and no’s in their life rather than the incremental yes-steps towards success. While building your small business into an empire we must always brush off the small knockdowns because at the end of the day it could have been worse. So since the absolute worst didn’t occur, let’s get back up on our feet, laugh a little, and push harder towards our goal. I promise you one of those doors will be the opportunity the man above has waiting for you.

While we have another twenty-four hours, continue to make the best of it and not let the past discouragements make you quit. Rudy Francisco said, “Tragedy and silence have the exact same address,” so don’t isolate yourself or get angry at the world when something doesn’t go your way. While ‘you are still alive’ remember that you have another chance to accomplish your mission.  


Interaction

Our focus this week is on the word “interaction.” Interaction is powerful for every entrepreneur. Our main goal is to satisfy our target market and give them premium customer service right? So the first tool that leads to that is an everlasting positive aura that you and your customers shall feed off of. All companies prosper from allowing their audience to have a trustworthy and memorable experience whenever they’re in the same vicinity and that’s how it will always be. We must put customer experience before product because the clothes don’t sell itself. Its the individual explaining the quality of the merchandise which leaves the customer with a positive remark towards your career.

On the other hand, even when it isn’t business related, we shall always interact with peers the way we would like to be treated. One minor social can lead to major networking for both parties. Now go show everyone your creative skill set and continue to build a network of talented friends.
