December 2013 | Ideas for Building Brands and Growing Companies

“If they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love.” said the late Nelson Mandela whose words leave a legacy of hope and inspiration for people around the world. Mandela (who passed away yesterday at 95) was always mindful that his leadership role in the liberation of South Africa from apartheid might not have been possible if he had not been imprisoned. It was in jail that he gained the deep perspective needed to lead his country in the difficult years ahead. If you think about it, Mandela’s message and teachings provide inspiration to people, politicians and marketers throughout the world. Marketers? Yes, marketers, because Mandela demonstrated the strength of sharing someone else’s perspective. We here at Young Company hope that your holidays are filled with happiness and time to pursue those experiences that mean the most to you.

Happy Holidays!
