Blog – We Made the Potluck Meetup Happen

Insight – We Evolve Beyond One Place

The gauntlet.

The gauntlet is the business and all the intangibles that come with it. The gauntlet is a filter that is rewarding in the same way as working out; it prepares the foundation for all growth.

As a student of the gauntlet, studying the beast is a given. Through my studies I've come to understand that it’s an ongoing recruitment process, and that recruitment process is an ongoing trial by fire. You have to workout to keep up with the daily grind.

Success comes to those who try fast and fail faster, only to re up and learn faster. Cycles such as these are embedded in all existence, minutes turn to hours, hours turn to days. We sleep, we wake, we cycle in order to do everything, even something as simple as tying our shoe laces needs loops.

Creative Unicorns of Toronto use an agile based system to turn ideas into projects that serve the community.

Insight - Who We Are?

Creative Entrepreneurs, Unicorns

Success is 99% planning, 75% course correction, and 1% execution. Most business people have it backward, wasting 99% of their time executing and course correcting a plan that was only 1% of the project. The key to success is knowing that everyone wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die.

Success is a filter that only a few get to because it requires so much self-reflection. Often you find yourself (an abstract identity) in a world designed to be linear. The largest component of success is crashing through the fear barrier; an experience we have to go through countless times in life. Every time it’s the same butterflies in our stomach.

This is our journey; we get to stay who we are, maximize our skills and evolve.

On our way through our journey collecting experiences as Unicorns, some of us will evolve before the initial meetup, some of us do so throughout the work process. After this comes the profit, the eventual losses, the downtimes, and the good times when everything looks up. There will be buyouts, celebrations, losses, we will feel down from disappointments, acquisitions mergers, and other evolutions along our journeys.
