#ROCKYBALBOA #motivational #speech #inspiring
Here’s one of my favorite motivational speeches of Rocky Balboa:"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”

"Design is the silent ambassador of your brand"
A brand is a living thing and that’s why we keep moving forward!
A company’s logo is a recognition tool for the public to link their services or products to the company. In other words, it is part of a company’s branding. Without such branding, the public will not be able to differentiate between companies, and therefore unable to expect a certain standard or quality from the company which they interact with. A logo, if designed effectively, can bring to people’s mind the unique selling proposition of an organization, which inevitably promotes the company on a sub-conscious level.
Here’s our logo evolution!! what do you think about our restyling over time?Did you know that brands like Shell, Apple or Renaul changed more than 3 times their logo?

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”” 
Yesterday I had a great afternoon sharing the beginnings of touchland with entrepreneurship students from ESADE Summer course. 
It’s always a pleasure to be in front of young energetic people that want to start their own project. I enjoy explaining our story so they can see that if we could do it, so they could. It’s a matter of try and believe in what you are doing.
Have a great day and keep making things happen!

"THE BRAVE MAY NOT LIVE FOREVER BUT THE CAUTIOUS DO NOT LIVE AT ALL” 
Today it’s holidays in Barcelona, so I have spent a part of my morning watching a great documentary about the snowboarder KEVIN PEARCE called “The Crash Reel” where he shares his injury & recovery. 
In 2009, Kevin Pearce was snowboarding’s rising star, until a devastating training accident left him with a serious brain injury. 
This documentary shows from all points of views this devastating accident. The struggle of the family to go through such a hard times when they almost lost their son and brother.. and then when they saw Kevin wanted to go back to snow sports. Kevin even hide to his family that he was competing again. 
I really recommend this story of  recovery & fight. Also after his accident, Kevin founded LOVE YOUR BRAIN. LOVEYOURBRAIN is the outreach campaign born from The Crash Reel and Kevin Pearce’s inspiring story. The campaign includes a variety of different initiatives, including infographics on what to do if you hit your head, discounts for snowboarders and skiers who wear a helmet at participating mountain resorts,  insurance information for athletes, a resource guide to help those with TBI, a share-your-story forum, a helmet pledge, giving the film for free to veterans with TBIs… and much more.
So if you have time, check out this inspiring documentary:

"BE YOURSELF. EVERYONE ELSE IS TAKEN” - Oscar Wilde
Today we have been shooting the video for the Chamber of Commerce Awards. It’s always a fun experience to be in front of the camera and share my project with the audience. 
I usually break with standards and I try to make it at “Andrea’s way”. Since touchland is a startup that I founded, I believe it has to remain with the same spirit and essence that we had in the beginning. I know I’m not a casual manager, but that’s who I am and has worked for me until now so I’m not going to change my principles even if my startup grows.
Few days missing for the awards on the 19th June! I will be posting more about it!

"WORK HARD. STAY HUMBLE” - Steve Jobs
One of the things I appreciate of my crew is that actually they are comfortable in all kind of situations. Some people might think that creating your startup is something fancy, full of glamorous meetings with CEOs and purchasing managers. Sometimes it is like this, but most of the time you really have to roll up your sleeves and turn your words into action. 
You might think you are too good to spend some time in the warehouse or sell in the street because you have an MBA and you studied enough not to be doing this kind of work. But in fact, I actually can tell that without knowing every part of your startup you can’t grow. Working in the warehouse, realizing the day to day issues and the problems can help you to improve your corporate strategy and business deals.
It’s very important when you have your own project, to be humble. To be a chameleon and involve your team in all types of actions of the company. If there’s a big disconnection between departments (because some of them are not as fancy as being in the general direction), it can drive your startup in a bad path and you don’t get to know the real problems of your company.
So.. work hard, but stay humble!
