This box is pretty much a no win for me. I could fill it with ad fluff, a creative mantra or a buzzword-laden diatribe. If it were a tweet, it would have no less than 6 hashtags; I like hashtags. Either way, I run the risk of sounding like a bootleg TED Talk. Hopefully my work speaks for itself; I am competitive, I work really hard and I don’t like settling for no.
