This is what I’ve said everywhere on the web even on this blog. You can find me on twitter, facebook, pinterest, linkedin, youtube, vimeo, google+ and many other sites not popular yet but with a creative core that make them special (the one I love the most is Cowbird, must be checked out!). All I said to the web are 140 characters, almost 22 words and 2 numbers and I think it’s time to say something more about me, it’s time to talk and spread which are my dreams, what I really want to do. That’s one of the purposes I created #brandyourway a year ago, to share my opinions.
I am currently 19, with no professional duties and lot of time, resources and imagination to create. Someone else would be playing at PS3 during the afternoon or doing literally nothing, but I need to create. College give the theory needed to success but only you are the responsible to do it or not, only you can make it happen. And I am trying to do it. To put in another way, I’m gonna try to succes in any case. I’m working on a project named intrepic which is in fact my motivation to learn everyday from everything. It’s an important aspect to take in account for youth to soak up all they can, learn from their environment, the way others act. Coworking and learning through experience.
Intrepic came to me the last summer just after arriving from Cali [take a look at Couchsurfing around California]. I’ve not realized til then how many events, successes and interesting facts can one notice while strolling. Always it’s happening something, not matter the place, the weather or the hour, if it has to happen it will and if you are lucky you’ll be there to see it. This is on which I focused intrepic, emotions through experience. (With an eye toward the future I promise to keep you on the ball about what’s gonna happen about intrepic).
Travel to US changed completely my way of thinking and learning. I’ve grown in a static society, if we keep in mind that Spain has nearly the same expanse as Texas it’s not strange then to born and die in the same place or almost at the same province. And this is what I want to change to me. Few month ago I was talking just about this with a friend I met in Las Vegas and he was so shocked about our way of life, the way we are able to born, grew, study, work, get married and die in the same place. That’s why I say that trip changed my mind; I saw how people create, found and boost startups in a day, from one day to the next, how ideas become business, how freelances don’t dead asphyxiated by taxes. It’s another reality. And I’m aware that culture, traditions, expanse and economy are pretty different, but I can’t understand at all what are we doing wrong here. Why entrepreneurs are afraid to set up their projects? Why ideas don’t become to business? Why creativity don’t become to ilusion?
And here is where innovation becomes important, how youth get the knowledge and learnings to feel free to create, to cooperate or simply but no less important to dream. Because as said Micky’s father, if you can dream it, you can do it and in any way innovation is nothing more than freedom, that feeling of “impossible is nothing” and “the world is mine”. Once you believe anything can’t stop you, only then you’ll start generating ideas, you’ll start creating concepts maybe not innovatives at all but they will become a part of that called entrepreneurship. And this concept is what avoid to get static and at the same time push the human race forward generating new business opportunities, generating wealth and making better the way of life of everyone.
Summing up, we are innovation, we are made of creativity and we live from dreams and goals. To success or not is on our hands and there’s also the chance to brand our way and achive at least that feeling called freedom. To finish, here’s a quote that really marked me said by a young entrepreneur with a huge potential I met this semester. All the best from this blog!
