How do some people in the industry seem to keep on being successful?

OPINION: Characteristics of top toy industry people

There are some people who just seem to achieve great results/great output on an ongoing basis.

There are reasons for their ongoing success normally. I’ve analysed the most successful people we know or know of in the industry and have come up with the following list of habits/characteristics of those people:

1. Determined and relentless – whether you are a sales person or a creative, a CEO or a marketer, we are all in the business of achieving results. We may have different specific measurables, but in the end we need to achieve positive results. The fundamental characteristic of people who achieve positive results in our industry and others is an inner drive to get the right results, no matter if it’s hard, if it takes months/years or whether our colleagues falter along the way.

2. Great ‘gut’ feel for toy product – when you look at all the great and the good in our industry, it’s hard to find one without a good feeling for what will sell.
