I found this gem, it was made at Wunderman and it compiles a bunch of advice from different people within the agency. It’s very informative and fun to watch.
I would agree with every single piece of advice mentioned here but here are my top favorites:
2- Be a sponge
3- The freshest ideas are not found in Advertising, find them within the world
4- Always be the first in, and the last to leave
5- Don’t make any enemies, only make friends
6- Be aware of the world
7- Ask questions
8- Don’t be seduced by technology, it all comes down to a good idea
9- Keep feeding your brain, there’s nothing in there now
10- Tenacity (YEAH!)
Print them. Memorize them. Don’t forget them.
