Anna Wintour – Always Keeping It Real

From the piece, “Conde Nast Adapts to New Forces, Leaving Some Employees Unsettled“:

“I am decisive, you know. I don’t believe in wasting anybody’s time. I like to be honest. I like to be clear. In my own personal career, I have felt almost the most difficult thing to deal with is someone who doesn’t tell you what they are thinking.” – Anna Wintour, Condé Nast’s artistic director

Love it.

Stumbled upon this today and was reminded of how grateful I am:

You can pursue your dreams and have a happy relationship. It just depends on the person you choose. You’ll give the majority of your time, attention, and energy to growing your business, so the love of your life needs to be incredibly selfless, supportive, and independent.

If you are a start-up founder with one of these amazing people in your life, make sure you do everything to keep them around. They are rare and a big key to your success.

Those words to live by are from a 2012 article by Tara Hunt.
