Surviving the Gift

Stacey knows the true value of a gift.

And how it may not always be recognized as such right away.

Stacey is a Stanford grad and co-founder of Brandplay, a naming and branding consultancy based in Boulder, Colorado. For over 15 years, she has helped create compelling messaging and brand names for clients that include Nike, Levi-Strauss, Nestlé and Coca-Cola, among others.

But, the most compelling message Stacey ever crafted happened when she journeyed within herself to share her story of "The Best Gift I Ever Survived".



How does Stacey's story resonate with you?

Has there been a tragic or unfortunate turn in your life that really comes packaged as a gift in disguise? Perhaps the termination of a relationship, friendship or a career is really a harbinger of better things to come, especially with the wisdom you might gain from a "school of hard knocks' experience.

Do you have the strength to unearth the lessons of treasures buried and embrace those carefully disguised gifts?

If that strength is lacking, will you drop another disguise ...

And ask for help?

Gair,

Life ... is the one gift so many of us take for granted.

Thanks for sharing!
