What’s Inspiring WME? : The Account Managers
Today we spoke to a handful of WME’s amazing account managers about what inspires them within and outside the office, here’s what they shared with us.
“I’m inspired by learning and competition. Some wise person once said ‘A fool knows everything, a wise man learns something new every day’ and this has always resonated with me…”
“I believe competition brings out the best in me and shows the quote above to be true. Through competition we better ourselves, learn off each other’s mistakes, we adapt and we find solutions to stay ahead of the pack. The only thing after that is to figure out how far you take it.”
“I did quite a bit of reading back in my high school days and one of the most memorable books for me was Magician by Raymond E. Feist. This book told the tale of an orphaned boy named Pug who would go on to do great things as a powerful magician. Despite Magician being a fairly dungeons and dragons fantasy staple, it had a lot of themes that resonated with me and I feel that a lot of the hardships I’ve faced were similar to that of Pug in terms of friendship, sacrifice and ambition…”
“It was a fantasy novel which really spoke to me as a teenager growing up and has helped me develop as a person, knowing that no matter how dire circumstances may seem at times, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It’s a must read for any fantasy novel lovers out there and currently sits at 20 or so books in total so there’s plenty to read for new readers!”
“I love the thinking in this video. Taking something that we all take for granted and using it to our advantage…”
“What perspective can I take on my attitude, work, personal life and interactions with people that could produce an exponentially positive result? How do I develop a strategy that can exponentially scale the value of my client’s budget? What is the purpose behind the task? What is the effect of the result? What will set my strategy apart from all the noise in the digital world?”
“I’m inspired by people who can turn a negative situation into something positive that can inspire others…”
“More recently the young boy Jayden Vaden, who no longer fears taking on the world without his prosthetic eye after being inspired by rapper Fetty Wap, who also lost an eye at young age. As well as the story about Ahmed Mohamed, whose home-made clock was mistaken for a threat by his teacher, and who has turned the experience into a platform for discussion and received praise worldwide.”
“I’ve always had a keen interest in fashion and recently I’ve really been inspired by the amazing looks gracing the runways of New York Fashion week…”
