Understanding someone’s core values is a great way to figure out if you fit together. Here are my top 10.
Sometimes finding your purpose is as much about figuring out what you don’t want as it is about figuring out what you do. After stripping away the immaterial, my love of communicating and storytelling was left. It has given me a passion and purpose over and above that of just ‘doing business’. It is a form of personal connection. I can never imagine giving it up.

Give your business purpose.”

If you do the right thing for the right reasons, without any expectation of how it will benefit you, then that’s integrity. Acting with integrity builds trust. My mother was a woman of great integrity. She taught me that if a shop assistant gives you too much change, you give it straight back. So when the metaphorical shopkeeper of life tests your character, choose to act with integrity. As with sunscreen, apply that sh*t everywhere.

and the things you didn't say and didn't do."
