This past week I have learned some valuable lessons from three personalities from the world of business and the land of dreams through very brief interviews via Twitter. The challenge and the fun part of doing these interviews using tweets, is that the “tweeterviewee” [I made that up] only has 140 characters per tweet.
First, Cedella Marley, internationally-recognised fashion designer and daughter of the late great Bob Marley (Reggae Legend), shared with me some important lessons. Cedella professes doing what you love, following your passion and making it a reality after she spoke about her days with Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. One of her most recent work (seen globally) was Jamaica’s Olympic Collection for @PUMA in London 2012.
My “tweeterview” with CEO, Adam Stewart of the Sandal Resorts International (SRI) brand, echoed that success only comes with a tremendous dedication to hard work and highlights how the media can sometimes trivialise the road to success by only showing “the glitz and glamour” perspective.
The final tweeterview involved notable fashion designer Lubica Slovak, known for her signature Lubica flower applique. She stated that her competitive advantage comes from doing what she loves and loving what she does. She proved too that inspiration is indeed all around us and that passion is secretly and obsession as well. In short, she has a passion for fashion.
You can never learn to be inspired by the uninspired, so why do you think you can be a dreamer when you surround yourself with people who never take the time to put their head amongst the clouds.
Dream BIG and live fearlessly!
