Laurel Bray + Mason Anderson-Sweet, Co-founders of DUNN LEWIS + Oh Hey Fck You
Power Couple, Redefined
We reject the idea of a specific definition. Instead, let us be vaguely specific: any pairing of humans that achieve something amazing is powerful. Everything is made up.
Strike A Balance
Habits are bad. We’re constantly evaluating how we approach our projects and if we’re approaching them in the right way. However, in a literal sense: coffee, weed, sleep and commitment to sparkle motion.
We’re not entirely sure what we mean when we say this but, “Move fast, clear those murder holes” [opening scene, “Saving Private Ryan”]. It [captures] the feeling of entrepreneurship. There’s really only one path to success and it’s not guaranteed but you have to keep moving forward or it dies.
Every day and all the time. Absolutely too many to list. You’ve got to work to be understood and also put in the work to understand.
Conflict Resolution Tips
Always finish the conversation. If you work to understand where the other is coming from you can align your goals and really achieve some next-level shit together. Respect and understanding are key.
2:2 every day.
The mutual history [we have together]. We know each other’s successes and failures, strengths and weaknesses, fears and motivations. That helps us both support and call each other out as needed.
