In the same way, you have to be honest and humble and understand in which fields you’re not too good at and team up with people possessing different skills.

Exercise, sleep, dedicate some time to your family, because these things are all equal parts of your life and deserve respect and time. With this fashion house model your staff will trust your leadership and will be reciprocally happier and healtier if their landmark is shiny.
