Never let go of advice given by smart people
I have the enormous privilege of being mentored by Vicki Holgate. Vicki used to be FCB Inferno’s Chief Strategy Officer which is how we got to know each other. On one of our calls, I was confessing to her that I was struggling with a strategy.
I didn’t feel comfortable sharing this with my team and superiors which made me even more nervous when working on that specific strategy. Even though she wasn’t prepared for this question, Vicki gave me an excellent motivational speech right away on the phone. It was so good that I instantly noted it down and then turned it into this image, which now sits framed at my desk.
