The Internet is a wondrous thing. At some point it introduced me to Grace O’Sullivan, connector par excellence, charismatic as heck. At some point, Grace asked if I’d join her in a new consultancy, Rare Fiber.
Yes. I would.
Here’s what we’re doing, and when I say “we” I’m one of 19 contributors. From the website.
We are passionate about advancing excellent people, organizations, and ideas. We believe in listening and pushing boundaries with style and design. We do this by weaving fresh, authentic perspectives through the fabric of our partners’ culture. We help forward-thinking organizations innovate through a collaborative, human-centered design process.
From an email Grace sent me last night.
Rare Fiber is not only about creating the next wave of consulting, it’s also about building a new lifestyle brand, art + business + design, and the people who want to thrive at this nexus.
One more thing, for you guys. Some readers have asked me over the years if I’d be willing to career counsel, or, alternatively, style consult; this venture is home for those services. I can be hired for 1:1 telephone consulting, as well as larger projects. In these early days we’ll give you a discount on my hourly rate on 1:1 work. The nexus indeed.
If you’re interested, you can submit an inquiry here. Or email me, as always.
To track us, if you are so inclined, you can follow Rare Fiber on Twitter, or subscribe to the blog. I’ve got a post up there now, Creative, Noun or Adjective? Felt good to speak in the less subjunctive mode; some things are certain.
Maybe you and I will talk about something you’re puzzling over soon. In any case, I wish you a wonderful weekend, and overarching success in inquiry of all sorts. It’s good to think big, as long as you think with discipline. Oh, and I thank all of you, so much, for giving me this space to practice.
