Yesterday I met a Meetup group that was taking photos in the Fashion District in L.A. Here are some photos I took. Loved this lady’s style and the fact that we were on 11th street, with 11 seconds left on the crosswalk sign. Legs! Sock and sandals in the fashion district: to each his own. I don’t know if Jordan would approve though. My spouse and my nickname to each other. It stands for… If you have pink skin, you can wear these dresses! Some of the folks from the meetup group. Another shot of meetup folks in the background. @boldla’s store...

What Does It Take To Be You?


Posted By on Jan 2, 2014

Just read another great article about “talent is persistence” theme [which also reminds me of Seth Godin’s “Linchpin” chapter on  shipping it (putting your stuff out there!)]. Pardon the f- bomb at the bottom of the article, but this really is a great read from the 99u.com. It brings me back to my decade’s old  question: “what does it take to be you?” My intentions for today’s blog wasn’t going to be about goals [or resolutions], but after reading the aforementioned article talk briefly about measurements and metrics [as much as I hate taking metrics for work], it’s a necessary task. We need to see where we came from and where are we going. In my next post, I will be posting my 2014 SMART...

Friday night’s takeaway from James White // Signal Noise was this: You don’t know where your work will end up if you don’t put it out there. He also went on to say: Do it. Do it today or do it tomorrow, because no one is ever going to know your work, if you don’t put it out there. I would gladly post notes, but I actually found a video of his presentation that was quite similar to Friday night. Of course, you should’ve been...
