“What Sept. 11 had done is wreak havoc on many different industries in the country, and I always think that in chaos there’s innovation. So I wanted to find the most chaotic industry out there, because I felt I would learn a huge amount. There would be a lot of change and transformation.” – Jennifer Hyman, Rent the Runway
Three things I picked up from this article:
- Peer-to-peer marketplaces may just be the next big trend for the e-commerce market.
- So what if you’re a woman? It always pays to be that little bit more aggressive (or at the very least, assertive) – a trait that seems to be reserved for the men, for some crazy reason. The worst answer you can get is a “No”, which you will get anyway for not speaking up.
- There’s no reason in 2014 to continue doing something you don’t love or are not passionate about. Go seek it out, and at least give it a try on the sidelines – that means no excuses that read along the lines of “I have too many financial commitments at the moment to leave my full-time job.”
Happy New Year guys!
