A lesson in Resourcefulness from Footwear & Fashion Entrepreneur, Kenneth Cole

All too often we can let the immediate problems block our success.

Think about the obstacles which have stopped you bringing your ‘big ideas’ to fruition. Have you ever been thwarted by:

- No time ?

- No money ?

- No experience ?

I think we can all learn from the way that Kenneth Cole – now famous designer – started his business. Keen to hit the road running and makes some sales before their fledgling company ran out of money, Cole wanted to orchestrate a massive New York City PR launch. Not only did he lack the funds, he lacked the permission to even execute his already creative ‘Plan B’…

Then he got truly Resourceful…

You can see the video of the story right
here on his website:

Or read it here:

And the business is still called Kenneth Cole Productions, Inc.!

But my question to you is? How can you emulate Cole’s resourcefulness? And, if you already have, can it become part of your personal business mythology? Is it creating interest in your current CV? Can you bring the story alive to tell an enthralling story at interview?
