“Are you about to do the work and are you passionate?” - @issarae ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We had the immense pleasure and privilege of seeing @issarae speak at @popsugarplayground this year and, quite honestly, her panel discussion was more valuable than any other discussion or swag we heard or received. We would go back just to hear her speak alone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Best takeaway: There are some people who want to make it to the finish line without running the whole course. And yeah, that’s a W for the time being, but what if you’re presented with another course of greater distance? How will you continue to succeed if you don’t have the experience from past failures, successes, lessons learned - how will you continue to be better? Not only that, patience comes with experience. Thicker skin. The ability to handle difficult obstacles without losing your shit. If you’re passionate and put in good, hard work, success will inevitably follow. And, on that note, don’t forget to take chances and take advantages of opportunities to showcase your hard work.
