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.

ESC’S QUESTION: “HOW CAN I START SOMETHING I LOVE?”

BRAD’S ANSWER:

The best advice I’ve received in recent memory: don’t get too high when things go right and don’t get too low when things go wrong.

I do believe that it is possible to pursue the dream and be practical (and don’t ignore the details) at the same time.
