One of the most common questions we get at Flerish HQ is: How do I know I'm picking the right Advisor?
We're here to answer that question and assuage any doubts you might have. Read on and find out how to choose the right Advisor for you.Read More
One of the themes explored in A Star is Born is what happens when Ally, the singer Jackson Maine discovered in a dive bar, eclipses his own star and becomes a larger mainstream success than him? It got our wheels turning—sure, it's great drama on the big screen, but also has practical applications in the real world, too.Read More
Ok, full disclosure. You DO actually need real-life Advisors who know who you are, and can help you in your journey…but, it’s really fun to read wacky celebrity advice and pretend that they’re your personal Yoda (and if you remember Yoda, you know he was a hilarious but weird and ineffective Advisor.) So, in the spirit of hilarity, levity, and possibly learning, we wanted to compile some amazing Christopher Walken thoughts and present it to you, with commentary (of course), as to why it’s great advice from your Advisor (or absolutely terrible. There’s really only two ways this can go in these cases…)Read More
Hoo, boy. We may have bitten off more than we can chew with this one. Gandalf is a character written about (and created) by J.R.R. Tolkien many times and in many forms. We also know that there are many, many people who are, shall we say, a little…obsessed with the collective works of Tolkien. With that in mind what we’re about to say may be considered blasphemy to them: because there are so many iterations of Gandalf, we’re going to focus solely upon his mentorship of the fellowship of the ring in the 2001-2003 movie trilogy. We hope we’re not breaking your heart by doing so. If so, well…Read More
Kanye West has undoubtedly spent 2018 a busy man. We’re not here to pile on him, he’s clearly working out some things professionally, but we can’t help but think that he’d benefit from a good team of Advisors that he trusted.Read More
Hello, and unless you’ve been living under a rock (which in that case, please let us know how much rent is because LA housing prices are ridiculous) you probably know who Professor Dumbledore is (ok, sorry, Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore.) The beloved Hogwarts headmaster from the Harry Potter series guided the titular hero (fancy-speak for “Harry Potter”) in his epic quest against Voldemort. Dumbledore served as both a mentor and a protector to Harry, and in Flerish-speak, we call that a twofer!Read More
It’s a rare person who truly enjoys their time in high school, especially once they find out it’s nothing like what TV said it would be. Waking up early, having finals, the repeated amount of winter fire drills (not really a problem in Los Angeles, but some of us weren’t so lucky to grow up here and came from more northern climes…you think they let you stop by your locker to grab your coat when it’s 15 degrees outside and the fire alarm is ringing? Think again, my friend!)Read More
The hardest part about assembling this blog was coming up with the perfect pop culture reference point to base it around, and after much deliberation and back and forth (“a sports team is too obvious!” “Not everyone has seen Ocean’s 11” “Get off YouTube cat videos, you have a deadline!”) the perfect archetype finally revealed itself—assembling your team that will help you achieve your goals is like building a boyband—essential to success, because every member of your team plays an essential role in the overall harmony of the group. (Get it? Harmony?!)Read More
Through a very informal poll, when the Flerish team got together to discuss who or what an Advisor was, one name kept coming up—Yoda.
Since appearing in The Empire Strikes Back in 1981, Yoda's become synonymous with mentorship and training. He’s almost universally admired as a bastion of wisdom and guidance, but is it a deserved reputation?Read More
Congratulations! Someone thinks your perspective is important and they want to make it YOU official. That means that unlike my Aunt Martha on a certain social media site that shall not be named, your opinions and advice are not only solicited, but wanted! (side note: there are MANY ways to make an omelet, Aunt Martha.)Read More
