Uncovering Wisdom: Reflections on Life-Changing Advice

From life lessons to advice on navigating the world, barbershops have always served as a hub for passing down valuable insights, steeped in a rich history of community and camaraderie. Hear from some of TR's team on the best piece of advice they have ever received.

You ever hit the middle of the work week and find yourself staring at your screen, stuck in a bit of a rut, hoping for something to inspire and motivate you to get through all your tasks for the day? We feel you.

At Think Rubix, we start off all our team meetings by checking in on each other, sharing some laughs, and doing some icebreakers to get our heads right. We’re humans, not robots, so we value taking time to lighten the moment and build each other up.

This week, we asked our team to share the best advice they’ve ever received, and the responses were so good, we wanted to share them with y’all for a bit of #FridayMotivation.
