Today I went to an event at Apple SOHO where Jeff Staples and Ronnie Fieg talked about brand building and how Ronnie started. The talk was inspirational and Ronnie spoke about how he was always hardworking and really wanted to be the best. The opportunity that changed his life was when his second cousin David Z gave him an enveloped filled with money. Ronnie Fieg refused to take the money and instead asked for a job. This event is what started his fire in retail. Ronnie kept moving up in position and became noticed by Asics. They started collaborating and he kept on going and didn't look back. Now Ronnie has insane collaborations and has a huge following.
The biggest takeaway from the speech was "Do the thing you love or die trying" and "be the the hardest working person you know."
Overall the event was great and a lot was learned.
