I’ve always been a believer that there are two types of people: those that wish and wait for someone to fill their needs and those that fill their needs themselves.
For the past few weeks I’ve been working on the first issue of a men’s lifestyle magazine, simply because I have never found an english language magazine that really spoke to me. And now I’m building a team.
I am looking for:
People who are storytellers. Storytellers in writing. In photography. In video. Editorial/Freelance writers, photographers, illustrators, stylists. Interests in men’s fashion, food, culture, travel are all pluses. Living in NYC is a plus but not necessary.
Someone with excellent communication and organization skills to work directly with me in researching and managing the functions of the magazine. Must live in NYC.
Send your portfolios/linkedins/resumes and emails here (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Reblog and share this with someone you think fits the bill.

1: Be authentic. The most powerful asset you have is your individuality, what makes you unique. It’s time to stop listening to others on what you should do.
2: Work harder than anyone else and you will always benefit from the effort.
3: Get off the computer and connect with real people and culture. Life is visceral.
4: Constantly improve your craft. Make things with your hands. Innovation in thinking is not enough.
5: Travel as much as you can. It is a humbling and inspiring experience to learn just how much you don’t know.
6: Being original is still king, especially in this tech-driven, group-grope world.
7: Try not to work for stupid people or you’ll soon become one of them.
8: Instinct and intuition are all-powerful. Learn to trust them.
9: The Golden Rule actually works. Do good.
10: If all else fails, No. 2 is the greatest competitive advantage of any career.
