Made by Few Conference

Posted on Saturday, October 03, 2015

I have hoped that I would be able to one day go on a trip and to a conference with the team that I work with, for a large part of my career and this weekend I was able to do both at the Made by Few Conference thanks to Envoc.

I am really glad to be a part of this team and here are a few take aways and inspirational/funny quotes from this weekend:
  • When you understand the limitations you can understand how you can manipulate them.
  • Its easy to make something functional but it takes time to make it usable.
  • Embrace chaos.
  • Quit your job...or don't...whatever.
  • Dont rely on your contact list alone when looking for the "best person for the job". Diversity starts when you think past yourself and what you know.
  • Hire people that you know will one day leave.
  • Do what you love and the rest will work itself out.
  • Dont be afraid to walk away.
  • Take risks.
  • Running a business isn't for everyone.
