I don't care how advanced technology gets. I don't think that there's anything that can replace looking someone in the eyes, touching their hand, you know?
Intuition is the wisdom formed by feeling and instinct - a gift of knowing without reasoning... Belief is ignited by hope and supported by facts and evidence - it builds alignment and creates confidence. Belief is what sets energy in motion and creates the success that breeds more success.
I have learned to listen and to hone my instincts to be perceptive and be receptive to change, to constantly live in ambiguity.
At some point in your career, maybe you, too, have made the life-altering decision to start anew. If so, you know first-hand how exciting, challenging, and sometimes disorienting the first 30, 60, 90 days can be.
I hadn't grown up always aspiring to be a CEO.

I know it might sound weird, but empathy is one of the greatest creators of energy. It's counterintuitive because it's selfless.
It's no longer possible to think of the physical and digital as two different worlds.
I grew up in a physical world, and I speak English. The next generation is growing up in a digital world, and they speak social.
It's not unusual for a luxury company to be born from a single product and then diversify. Louis Vuitton began with luggage, and Gucci with leather goods.
Remember - the universal language is not texted, emailed, or spoken. It is felt.
Great brands and great businesses have to be great storytellers, too. We have to tell stories - emotive, compelling stories - and even more so because we're nonfiction.
I think when you're empathetic, you're putting yourself in somebody else's shoes, right? It's not about you.
