3 People who Inspired me to Write We-Commerce BookBillee Howard
It’s our choice. It’s up to each and every one of us together to live and change for the House of WE. WE can build a better world out of the ashes of creative destruction. We can choose purpose over profit, passion and artistry over productivity, elegance over efficiency, slow food over fast food. Bigger is better is dead. White is the new green. Quality of life is the new American Dream. The economy of engagement is the new Made in the USA. Hanging on to a crumbling status quo will not make you safe. It’s already too late. You can’t stop the forces of change once they are in motion. Watch for the signs of the new world order unfolding, and adjust accordingly. Become a connoisseur of CULToure. Read the handwriting on the wall. Be the handwriting on the wall. Adapt to the demands of Creative Darwinism. Become an artist of life. Grow your own. Be a true original. Unite, destroy, create, sustain, imagine a better world and do one thing every day to make your House of WE a reality. Do it for the many, not the few, and in collective cooperation. Make friends with the unknown. Stand up. Stand out. Let go of the drama. Enter the 5th Dimension and then invite your friends over for a home cooked meal. Be open. Be flexible. Be agile. Dance. WE are all starting from scratch, starting today. This chance may not come again in our lifetime. Here are 3 people who inspired me to write this book.
- Andy Warhol as he invented the sharing economy driving notion of everybody having the chance to become famous for 15 minutes. (Also because he said he wanted to die with his blue jeans on #whatawaytogo)
- Steve Jobs because he invented the age of experience we are living in today that the new #weconomy is built upon. Apple creating not just stellar products but the brand experiences that create new passion, was the gateway to the bespoke detail today’s sharing economy thrives upon.
- Jim Morrison as he was among the world’s greatest storytellers ever and showed how a song could be an immersive experience through the collision of incomparable lyrics, performance and sound. Jim was an early pioneer of using omni channeled creative approaches to drive the level of brand immersion today’s sharing economy consumers demand.
