Just spent time with “doers” in California. Maybe it’s the diversity in geography, cultures, agriculture, but certainly, ideas, that make this place feel freer for people to try new concepts. It is a hard-scabble place with people who have a perseverance that I don’t see everywhere, but there appears to be an attitude of possibility among the second tier of creatives. They collaborate and try to show up for each other, thus their networks are tight.
They don’t limit their talents or talk themselves out of attempts for success. We can learn from the quality work ethic that exists there.
