Lauren Bacon and Emira Mears Present

The Boss of You

It's a book. It's a blog. It's a guide to running a business your way.

Why we wrote The Boss of You: Reason #5,341

Because it brings people together! Check out this heartwarming story from Victoria, BC interior design duo Inoui Design:

What is the story behind Inoui Design Collective? How did the two of you meet?

In December 2008, unbeknownst to each other, we were both reading the same business book at the same time (The Boss of You written by Vancouver web designers Lauren Bacon and Emira Mears), with the other in mind as the perfect business partner. We met for coffee, each with the ulterior motive of proposing a partnership. Our conversation went a little something like this…

– “I just burned through this really great book called The Boss of You”
– “Oh my god, so did I.”
– “We should be business partners”
– “Um, yes we should!”

Isn’t that sweet? It totally made my day.

You can read the full interview (well worth the read, especially if you like great interior design) here.
