MAN VS. WILD
Brave it out in tough leather, exaggerated silhouettes and unorthodox textures
Another month, another form of community quarantine. We’ll spare you the adjectives, because what it really is, is limbo.
I’ve been an employee and a business owner for nearly two decades now and during one of the long nights of 2020, I asked myself, “What kind of leader do I want to be?” This is a question that can easily be answered by, “I want to be a good leader.” But the truth is, it is so difficult to even come close to good. You see, many if not all of our jobs is a business, a business that has to keep spending at bay, one that has to increase profits year over year, and one that has to keep workers happy and motivated. Those things are polar opposites of one another and to find the perfect middle is challenging. For months, I’ve mulled over my own question and I think I’ve found the answer. I want to be that leader that inspires personal growth.

Full disclosure, I knew about this announcement six months ago at the height of the pandemic. When I was told, I laughed. I wasn’t sure if it was a nervous laughter, an amused chuckle or both. I honestly thought it was a prank that would be revealed seconds later, but it wasn’t.
