"… insights for scaleups"
Tattoos on the Heart — this is the title of entrepreneur Father Greg Boyle's huge bestselling book. Subtitled "The Power of Boundless Compassion", his 11-minute 2017 Notre Dame Commencement speech is a humorous and moving address worth the time this weekend. And his story of building a multi-million business with only "homies" as workers from the worst neighborhoods in L.A. is inspirational.
Tattoos' Daily Huddle — This 2-minute video shows Homeboy Industries daily huddle as Boyle explains the power of this important gathering. As one of the attendee's states "without the meeting the day wouldn't be right!" I agree. Thank you to Bob Shannon, Gazelles certified coaching partner, for sharing these moving links.
Tattoos on the Wrist — Kristen Wood, founder of the Canada-based "anti-spa" beauty bar chain called THE TEN SPOT, sent me this note:
Here's the photo – and below it is the back story.
Context for the X . — notes Kristen (she only uses CAPS for the company name!):
Reminds me of the power of the Nike "swish" – what is your company's symbol?
What Makes Her Culture Strong — she continues:
She goes on to note the "working with Gazelles, and working through Scaling Up, we've refined our values even further to really make THE TEN SPOT an environment for excellence and self-actualization. the best i can guess is that it's all these factors together." Of course, she signed it "x.k". Thank you, Kristen, for sharing your story.
