Cameron’s Top Takeaways

  1. Create emotional connection with authentic stories of individual people — when we lump people together, they become invisible.
  2. Punk rock and great art are not censored — have the courage to be bold and say things like, “This house is so hot I almost peed my pants!”
  3. See marketing opportunities everywhere, in block parties and homemade signs.
  4. Beginner’s wisdom can take you to new places, and if you fail, fail forward.
  5. People relate to movements (like punk rock), so be a student of a movement to learn about marketing.
