“Go get some fucking hate mail.”

I thought we we’re going to talk about hats. I never expected the conversation to bloom into that…

Satya Twena saved one of New York’s last operating millenary (hat making) factories. Using KickStarter she realized $174,000 in crowd funding. A friend was able to loan her the difference for the cost of the equipment. She found herself the owner of a Manhattan based factory with $30,000 a month in overhead. At the time, she had $1,000 dollars to her name.

During our interview she explained the mentality that carried her through, “All of the sudden, you’re opening up the universe to the fact that you’re open to receiving so much more than you are capable of assuming you deserve.”

It takes bravery to open space for true intentions. I believe her bravery is and important component of her business mastery.

She also shared this IN-Q poem with us:

You will always find the evidence for what you choose to believe.
You will always find the evidence for what you choose to believe.
Starve your pain, find your ego.
Starve your ego, find your beast.
Starve your beast, find your truth.
Find your truth, find your peace.
You will always find the evidence for what you choose to believe.

There is so much great stuff in this conversation. Thank you for listening. Now go create your moment and share it. Satya might just buy you a hat… 

“They’re pushing through life… and I want to dance through life.”
