I've rather enjoyed having my blog. My friend Pippa says the best way to write, is to write about what you know and I couldn't agree more. For me, that is my experiences, my interests and my travels. My friend Matthew said something to me that really made me smile a few weeks ago, "You create some interesting content... Makes me smile, laugh, and contemplate things... You remind me of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex in The City”. I always wonder whether people actually read the things that I rumble on about, and whether or not, it's interesting, inspiring, funny, or just plain weird. My personality, if you know me, is just out of this world. I'm this weird anomaly that very few people understand and can comprehend. I'm constantly asking my friends if they have any suggestions, would like to see something different or have any opinions and I try my best to incorporate it as best I can. Matt's statement definitely hit it home though, as he is someone whose career I have absolute mad respect for- serial entrepreneur, massive expertise in both B2B and B2C and has recently hopped on the Amazon-train, post successful acquisition of his e-commerce company. I really never could have imagined that I would enjoy having this creative outlet as much as I have, but it's an excellent way to take a step back from work and do something that allows for you to think, create and share. Three attributes that are very important to me and are important to my personal development as a human.
I happen to really enjoy sneakers and have quite the collection that I've built over the years. When I used to work in finance, I remember seeing our Managing Partner roll into the office in a three-piece suit wearing fresh white sneakers and thinking, "What the hell is he wearing?"... but at the same time, "He looks like a total Boss". Albeit a few years later, I have copy-catted him and now wear dress pants and blazers with kicks all the time and think it looks pretty dope.
