Ted Talk Tuesday: Richard St. John

Everyone has his or her own definition of success. For some, success means earning money, buying a big house or maybe a fancy car. Perhaps for others, success is levitating to a higher social standing or winning an award.

For our team at NYX, success is nearly impossible to define as a single item or ideal. Instead, we’ve created our own definition by drawing from approximately eight components, as outlined by Richard St. John’s Ted Talk, “Eight Secrets of Success.”

While we haven’t taken the past 7 years to interview approximately 500 people about their personal definitions and secrets of success, we have taken the past 20 to design and produce entertainment for more than 15,000 events. Our alternate route to discovering the secret and definition of success led us to the same enlightenment.

Every day, the team at NYX Entertainment & Events acknowledges following elements to be sure that the day is, in our opinion, successful:

  • Passion
  • Work
  • Focus
  • Persistence
  • Creativity
  • Professionalism
  • Drive
  • Customer Service
