💌 Excellent Life Advice from Kevin Kelley - Kevin Kelly is the founding executive editor of Wired magazine, and a former editor/publisher of the Whole Earth Review. He has also been a writer, photographer, conservationist, and student of Asian and digital culture. His new book is sprinkled with profound wisdom. Here are the best bits.
💌 From Drug Addiction to Founding a Media Empire Valued at $6Billion: The Story of the Rise and Fall of VICE Media - Eventually, he started VICE with $10,000. He could not get a loan from anywhere. He formed a team that was short on credentials but had oodles of hustle. They didn't have a business plan and they didn't wear suits. They did what they knew best - fill the authenticity vacuum by reporting stories about matters that interest people.
💌 When you are looking for a job, remember that somewhere an employer is desperately hunting for someone like you especially if you are unconventional - Getting that dream job entails seeking problems and people that need us the most. We need to look for them and also create conditions for them to find us. Then at the right time, with some luck, things work out.
