Just last week I was asked for the millionth time whether or not my business was a cult. My answer has become YES, which tends to get funny looks. So here’s the question: If people refer to your business as a CULT, is that a bad thing?
People think that design is styling. Design is not style. It’s not about giving shape to the shell and not giving a damn about the guts. Good design is a renaissance attitude that combines technology, cognitive science, human need, and beauty to produce something that the world didn’t know it was missing.

All happy companies are different and rarely need to compete on price.
All struggling companies are the same and are forced to compete on price.

The entrepreneur journey is more predictable than you might think. There are 6 individual stages, each with their own set of struggles and challenges.
The event dubbed by The Huffington Post as “The World’s Leading Personal Brand Accelerator” is coming to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Inc.com called it “One Of The Top Personal Brand Conferences In The World” – it is designed for entrepreneurs, business owners and senior leaders with the objective of the Business Brand Accelerators to unlock more value from the experience, ideas and intellectual property that’s already in your business.

Think of yourself as a brand. You need to be remembered. What will they remember you for? What defines you? If you have it in you, do something that defines you. Invent something, develop a unique skill, get noticed for something — it creates a talking point.

Design is the silent ambassador for your brand.

The dumbest mistake is viewing design as something you do at the end of the process to ‘tidy up’ the mess, as opposed to understanding it’s a ‘day one’ issue and part of everything.
― Tom Peterson
Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated.
