Swissmiss’ SXSW Talk

Tina Roth Eisenberg (known by the moniker Swissmiss) is one hell of an inspirational woman. If you aren’t familiar with her, she runs one of the top design blogs on the web, is the founder of a Brooklyn based co-working space, a monthly breakfast lecture series, an awesome to-do app, and the temporary tattoo shop, Tattly—all while being a dedicated wife and mother. She’s a creative entrepreneurial force to be reckoned with and I’m in awe of what she’s accomplished. What I respect the most about Tina is how she just gets shit done. She decides she wants to do something and just does it. She doesn’t sit around and think about doing things or talk about doing things. If I had half the kinetic energy Tina has, who knows what I could have accomplished by now.  She gave a talk at SXSW this year and framed the speech around her “11 Rules to Live by” in work and life. If you want to be inspired by someone who truly loves what they do, I highly suggest you listen to her talk. It was full of great advice and I created a small graphic to condense her speech into her main 11 points. Let me know if you listen to her talk and what you think!

        No, but I’m willing to see it.
        Can you please mail me the link so that when I’m with a better bandwidth speed I may access the talk

  2. [...] as I was hoping to just find her 11 rules written out somewhere online, Rashi of BucketofSquash actually put it in a very neat graphic. Thanks [...]

    Oh, thanks for this Rashi! I’m so in need of leaders to look up to right now. Have you been to Creative Mornings? I want to go!

      You’re welcome! And I totally feel you on needing good female leaders to look up in the creative space. I’ve been to a bunch of Creative Mornings, but I haven’t been in a few months. I need to start going again.
