It’s that time of the month again. The stuff I can’t get enough of. The summer months are coming and I have a little extra pep in my step so I’m going to list out three things this month.
There is really no other way to describe how amazing this website is than to say… HONESTLY WHAT THE FUCK. My mother, yes my mother, turned me on to them. The boots (pictured to the left) were a creation she made with their step by step instruction and they are just no bullshit cool. In addition to this, Erica (The founder) is constantly keeping me intrigued with her Instagram story on all the new DIY projects she has in the works. This woman brings DIYing (I think that’s a word…?) to the next level. Even if DIYing (I’m going with it) is not your thing, take a peek at her "Travel" section. She find the most incredible villas, tents and cabins all over the world. I plan on going to Giraffe Manor and Rock Restaurant in the very near future.
Flights are rough. Especially When you need to do 2x festivals on opposite sides of the globe within one week. Although global travel for work is eye opening, it’s not always the most luxurious. Unless you are an influencer being flown out for an event or a senior executive, reality is, you’re in economy.
The worst flight I have ever taken was from Montevideo (Uruguay) to Perth (Australia). We had our festival in Uruguay on the first Saturday of January and then the next morning our team hopped on a flight to do it all over again the next weekend….on the other side of the world.
So the flight went like this.
This past week I was able to attend the Millennial 20/20 conference. Starting only a few years ago the conference brings some of the most well known brands all together under one roof. All known for their unique and innovative mindsets, each company spoke on their core values, strategies and flukes over the years. We’re talking about people like Google, Delta, Lonely Planet, Vice and Adidas. The tickets are pretty steep in price ($650 for 2x days) but luckily because my companies’ office is located in a WeWork, they offered 50 free tickets to whoever grabbed them first. Now, I never catch these things in time but my colleague and partner in crime is on top of his shit so he snagged us two before they were out.
So bravo to M20/20 because the conference was a hit. Yes, there were some speakers that were simply just selling their brand and reading slide by slide but there were others that made everyone in the room get that burning desire in their gut to keep pushing through. They all had one common theme they reiterated that I thought was genuinely important – the struggle is real and it’s not ending anytime soon so whatever you do, make sure you can see yourself doing it for the next 10, 15 or 20 years of your life. From 10 year old companies to ones still in beta, here are the ones that got me excited for what is to come next.
