On Thursday, May 19, we welcomed panelists: Freya Estreller of Coolhaus & Ludlows Cocktail Co., Adam Szajgin of 72andSunny, Vishal Lugani of Greycroft Partners and Ann Wang of Enrou to discuss their careers, passions and balancing the two. The panel was moderated by Natalie Robehmed, a staff writer at Forbes. Here are some of the highlights. #thinkStars

 

On Being a Leader…

  • "Understand what motivates someone then reward and incentivize their progress". – Freya Estreller
  • "The verticals that make us success: ambition, talent, dedication and hard work. Each warrants a different kind of reward." Adam Szajgin

On Entrepreneurship…

  • "If you're going to start a business, you have to find a way to pay yourself, otherwise it's a hobby." - Freya Estreller

On Finding Balance…

  • "Everything can seem urgent, but it's really not. If you're not going to be effective, take the day off and don't feel guilty about it." - Freya Estreller
  • "To unplug, spend time with people that are doing different things." - Vishal Lugani
  • "It's okay to say 'I need a break.'" – Freya Estreller
  • "You work 24/7 when you've started a company, so you have to find balance where you feel inspired. Give yourself time to be curious in your own space." – Ann Wang

On Networking…

  • "How to make networking not boring? Don't hang out with people you don't want to be around." - Adam Szajgin

On Finding Your Passions…

  • "Throw yourself into uncomfortable situations. That will help you find out what you're passionate about." - Freya Estreller
  • "Know what gets you excited most about your day. You probably already know, just dig deeper. And build an incredible network. Say yes to every opportunity when you're searching and take wonder around you." – Ann Wang
  • "Sometimes it's right in front of you. Cut through the noise and be honest with yourself." - Vishal Lugani
  • "Try stuff and see if you like it. It's like finding your way in a forest - figure it out fast or you may die at some point. But in life, you have more time." - Adam Szajgin
