A few days ago, I had the honor to receive the Forbes 30 under 30 award for the efforts of building presentation agency 356labs in the last 3 years. Everywhere, all around the web, I am sharing a very short yet important story of what happened just a few days before the ceremony and it’s this one.
While we were at the office, I got an e-mail from Iva Nachkova, my girlfriend who also joined the company from almost an year now, that was more or less a reshare of one of Seth Godin’s recent posts. The mail came with a simple question – profitable, difficult or important? The main idea of the post is that there are three type of companies nowadays. Ones that do it for the profit(Apple in the last few years). Ones that do it because it’s difficult(Tesla, Amazon). And ones that do what they do because their work is important.
So… profitable, difficult or important?
My answer: Important. 356labs and the team around me, we do what we do because we believe our work is important. That is what motivates us and that is what drives us forward.
Thanks again, Forbes and everyone who voted for us! We highly appreciate it.
