At the beginning of 2011 we started a campaign called Start Something You Love. We kicked it off on 19th January with our big Esc winter party in front of 600 people at Guanabara bar in central London.
We are now following it up with 365 bits of advice from real people who are doing interesting and inspirational things with their lives. And we asked them all the same question:
ESC’S QUESTION: “HOW CAN I START SOMETHING I LOVE?”
“You can’t do everything alone!
“Family and friends kindly reminded me of that and I learned to outsource where it makes sense and to get help where it is needed.
“To do anything entrepreneurial, I think most of the battle is having the persistence to break through all the obstacles, not being impressed by impediments, trusting yourself and keep on believing it’s the right thing for you.
“What I really want to say is, if you have a dream, an idea or feel you have some other purpose – GO FOR IT. Start it now. It’s all about execution. Everybody has a million great ideas all the time but not everyone takes the courage to act on their ambitions. I am constantly surprised how everything is possible if you only take the action.
“My advice: Do it now, only you can make it happen.”
