“At the early stages in my career I was faced with two options to collaborate with competing clients, both were amazing opportunities and with equally respectable brands. My gut told me to go one way and my mind said to go the other, but I ended up choosing the “easier” way out and the result was that I unintentionally burnt bridges with a brand that I loved and believed in.
Some days go by where I wonder how following my gut and ignoring convenience could have resulted in the challenge that could have potentially grown me exponentially as an individual.

After a year of challenges and many uncomfortable run-ins with this particular client I realised that my gut should always take president over convenience.”
