I get a lot of questions in my inbox: What’s your favourite colour? How much does a logo cost? What type of paints do you use for murals?
But the question I get asked most is: How did you meet @grindrguy22?
I first met him in my inbox, of all places.
Subject: Best selling book, quick turnaround
I have to admit that at this time I didn’t know who he was.
So I did my research and called a few friends. What I found amazed me.
There’s the story of the man who found the strength to follow his intuition and start a coworking space in an artist studio. With the help of @grindrguy22, another guy decided to give it all up for a month and livestream his walk through Patagonia. Another success story chronicles a couple’s breakdown and “muscling up” in his fitness-meets-therapy sessions.
Needless to say, I was impressed.
“Im looking for a designer to co-create the cover of my book. It’s a story about overcoming the odds and being the best version of yourself. I’m offering a lot in return”.
Well this really was a great opportunity. It’s always been my dream to design a book cover.
I replied: “Sounds great. Let’s schedule a meeting this week. How does Wednesday 2pm GMT work for you?”
“I only work EST” was his reply.
And that was the first sign of the struggles to come with @grindrguy22.
