It is now the end of the year when everything starts to wind down and it’s pretty much time to leave fantasy island behind and start to deal with the world of reality. At this time of the year, people always think about where they should travel, who they should spend time with, or just taking a break and stay at home with friends and family. People ask me all year what’s it like to work in a world where most people have no idea as to what that world is really like. It always gives me time to reflect about the good and the bad things in our business.
People’s dreams are basically our everyday thoughts. We use our creativity for our clients benefit in regards of what happens in the luxury world. I struggle with the fact that the end of the year is really the time to reflect about all the amazing things that we do that we sometimes take for granted .
People always ask me what is it that I like to do, where do I want to go, and what are the things that I would like to have. I try to stay very grounded in the world in which I work in because at the end of the day, what I really would like is for people just to get along, for the world to be a better place, and for people not to judge other people because of their background, religion, or their beliefs. There should be harmony in the world on just people enjoying what they have in front of them. There is no difference between the family living on a multimillion dollar estate and a family living in a 2 bedroom in the ghetto. There is no difference if they love and care for each other. Money is the only difference that separates them. Yes, for some it is a big difference, but it’s not the most important thing. The most important thing is just to be happy.
So people want to ask me what I would like? I just want happiness in the world where people can be creative, be true to themselves, and have the understanding of getting along with one another. On the other side, there is the fantasy world and if you wanted to ask me what’s on my list, where dreams and material consumption collide, here is my list for all of you billionaires who think M should have the very best, so here it is:
