We don’t believe success is random. Over the years we have spoken with hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs, artists, creatives, researchers, athletes, and more. We’ve learned from them – both through their stories and through the advice they’ve shared with us – and it’s quite evident that success is more likely when certain habits are present. So, we decided to ask folks to share their habits with us, especially those that they feel helped them succeed.

I make it a habit to constantly learn and push myself into the uncomfortable. I think it’s a mistake to grow complacent. I take time out of my week to research, learn and practice new skills. Not only does it make my job as a freelance photographer and videographer more exciting but it also allows me to offer a higher quality of work for my clients.

Consistency over fear. It’s that simple. Will I make mistakes? YES! Have I made mistakes? PLENTY! but I always bet on myself in business in sports in family and life.

In the beginning of the pandemic I approached it with an all I can see is opportunity mindset. The passion behind each action followed. More time to focus on being a present mother, more business opportunities in creating small group fitness classes both virtual and in person. If we focus on a positive mindset the outcome will be positive and if we focus on what can go wrong that too will come to fruition. Read more>>

Making the word “habit” my enemy. I believe that a good habit doesn’t exist. When you take upon you to master an area of yourself, whether it will affect your business or personal life, effort is the key ingredient. What happens when a task or a character trait is not attained by effort anymore? It becomes an habit. In an industry as challenging as the Movie and Series business, with constant new projects and the drastic changes it goes through, our presence on the market for 21 years have helped us understand the danger of an habit. Blockbuster went bankrupt after refusing to buy newcomer competitor Netflix. Social Media proved that you don’t need to hire a PR or pay an expensive press campaign when you release a film anymore. Digital piracy started to kill the DVD business until the streamers came up with a working model and evolved our way of consuming content. Read more>>
