WHAT’S #RADLIVIN?

#RadLivin is a unique event made to inspire you to do what you love now.

Speakers, live music and rad-like minding people coming together to get inspired, share their dreams and celebrate livin’ life to the raddest. Picture it as a fun, inspiring conference, mixed with a rad, laid-back festival.

The purpose of #RadLivin is to inspire you to do what you would love to do now, rather than waiting for some point in the future. It’s a declaration to live an authentic, rad life. Whether that’s saying yes to going on an adventure that day, or to a dream that’s been sitting in your heart, it’s here as a reminder to do what you love, what completely excites you. It’s about bringing people together to follow their dreams, while encouraging the person next to them to do the same; building not only a community of like-minded people, but a community of advocates for doing what you love.

ABOUT THE DAY
We’re bringing you down-to-earth, successful speakers who are doing what they love and passionate about inspiring you to do the same. You will hear stripped-back stories about how they went for their dreams and gain applicable knowledge on how you can do what you love too. Speakers include founders of Pedestrian TV, OneWave, One Night Stand, Axel & Ash, Tidal Magazine, Cait Miers and Connie Chapman

After the speakers, there will be live music by Ziggy Alberts and Sons of the East, cold bevies, tasty food and space for you to collaborate, meet rad people, share your ideas and have an epic time. 

SPONSORS
Because #RadLivin is all about inspiring you to do what would excite you and connecting you with the right people, we’ve partnered up with brands who are aligned with our purpose including Contiki, ING Dreamstarter and Airbnb. Our hope is to provide attendees with as much inspiration, knowledge and connections that will help them go for their dreams now.

George & Smee: Styling and Events

ROAR: Hey Katie & George, tell us about your awesome brand George & Smee! How did it start, who is involved and what do you offer?

G&S: George & Smee was born over a few glasses of wine when we, George and (Katie) Smee, chatted about our mutual love for creating beautiful spaces from blank canvases using our imagination, creativity and some fun! We quit our full time jobs and started sourcing and restoring a big collection of props and furniture.

 ROAR: We were lucky enough to attend and organise the music (Dusty Boots with a latin twist) for one event in particular and were blown away by your professionalism, attention to detail and authenticity. It's obviously your passion! When did a passion for styling come about and who encouraged you to develop your business?

G&S: Thank you!  We absolutely loved you being there!  I think we both knew that our jobs at the time weren’t fulfilling us and we needed to do something we were passionate about. 

What's the point in working 50 hours a week on something that doesn’t make you excited? Although it was definitely a bit scary, it also felt like a totally natural thing to do.

 ROAR: What are some challenges in starting a business and what has been some highlights?

G&S: It’s hard to ever switch off, there is always more you can do.  But the positives far outweigh the negatives.  We’ve learnt so much, met so many awesome people, worked harder than ever and pushed ourselves to the very edge and yet always had fun whilst doing it!

ROAR: Can you give our readers 3 tips on running a successful business?

 G&S: You’ve got to do something you’re really passionate about.  That way when you’re working all hours of the day and night, it’s ok because it doesn’t feel like work!

- Accounting is not really our strength, and we’re ok with that ;) We’ve got a brilliant accountant to help us with that side of things but we’ve also worked hard to understand our finances because having a good understanding of your business is absolutely crucial to a successful business.

- Enjoy it!  Work hard but make sure you laugh every day and make it worth it.

ROAR: What are you most excited about for 2015?

G&S: We’ve got quite a lot of awesome events coming in 2nd half of this year which we’re really excited about!  Some awesome launches, Christmas parties and incredible weddings.  Check out our instagram page for the pics ;) @george_and_smee
