You need to set near-term milestones. Put the assumptions down on paper, and make it to your vision or ultimate product. Your team has to understand where they’re going. Your partners need to understand where they’re going.
– Tony Fadell
I would say that nobody is going to work harder for your career than yourself – the one with the vision. No matter how many people you hire, nobody is going to get is as much as yourself does. So it’s really important to be your own leader at all times and not hand it all off, otherwise the whole empire will fall apart.

You need to know what makes artists tick. Having been through the process myself as a musician, since I was an early teen, gave me an advantage – understanding them from their point of view, because it’s about them, it’s not about you – it’s their vision and what they’re capable of achieving, and you’re the conduit.
– Tommy Mottola
If we are going to be able to create a new economic vision, companies will need to rethink every aspect of their operations; their bottom lines, ownership structures, demands on financial returns, how they raise capital. For example, an ethical company would say it should only take a fair share of the planet’s resources and campaign on this.

The Hadley Street Dream is a tribute to making a vision come to life. My father built a compound on a dessert city block, he saw something in that space we couldn’t see. It was years later the album was born right there on Hadley St. He built the studio I started recording the album at.
