If you haven’t heard Amazon just purchased Jamie Siminoff’s company Ring.com for in excess of $1B USD.
This is an unbelievable achievement by Jamie and his team, but I’m not surprised. I met Jamie for the first time in Las Vegas at CES in 2016 and a bunch of other times since. While we exchanged pleasantries given we have some close mutual friends what was very clear upon meeting him was he was hyper focused on executing his goals.
In 2013  Jamie appeared on an episode of ABC’s Shark Tankseeking a $700,000 investment in exchange for 10 percent of his company. At the time his product was called Doorbot.
While an offer was made, it wasn’t favourable for Doorbot and Jamie passed on the offer.
To anyone else they could have easily given up but Jamie regrouped, continued to maintain a hyper focus on his craft, changed the product name from Doorbot to Ring and continued to execute his vision which was to reduce crime in communities throughout the world.
To surmise, Ring is like caller ID for your front door and is now owned by Jeff Bezos and the Amazon corporation.
On todays vlog I take about the key lessons you can take from what Jamie and Ring have done.
Enjoy the Vlog 🙂

I've had the pleasure of working at Creative Cubes since it opened, and what I've loved most is that it isn't just desk space. Working here feels like being part of something. Every day you're surrounded by people pursuing their own endeavours, but doing it side by side in a community. The space itself is so well thought out and aesthetically pleasing, but beyond the beauty on the surface there is a depth here. The members are fantastic, the founders are involved and accessible, and the 'Happiness Team' provides a quality of customer service like no other co-working space I've been to. AND, it's pet friendly!

The 'Happiness Team' is what makes this co-working space stand out for me. I've worked out of several co-working spaces across Australia, Singapore & San Francisco. The customer experience at Creative Cubes is the best I've come across. For example, a happiness team member will physically walk to my desk to let me know when a guest has arrived, because they know I'm not always going to see the email notification. Sometimes they even buy me time if I'm running late! Brilliant.

The team at cubes are amazing and the space is modern and funky. They have a great mix of different businesses working in the space so the vibe is top notch as well. Would definitely recommend going down and taking a look for your office space or next event!
