Six Lessons Lana Al-Resheed Taught Me Without Even Realizing It

Everyone Should Know How To Defend Themselves

There is no one I’ve ever met who has such an open, optimistic, and SOLID PLAN to change Kuwait for the better and yet who also knows how to navigate Kuwait’s market and Kuwait’s society–in all it’s flaws and risks–like Lana Al-Resheed. In this double-edged ability, Lana has taught me that there is no reason why you should not train yourself for the world as it is while ALSO working to change it. If you let the world destroy you WHILE you are trying to build it you are under prepared, naive, and a little stupid.

You Have No Idea How An Actual New Field Will Ever Be

No matter how much time and planning you think you’re going to put into a project or a business plan, you will never know it until those training wheels come off and you’re out there on your own FOR REAL. Don’t pretend to be all-knowing and invincible because you will likely just end up looking like a chicken with it’s head cut-off: frantic, annoying, and pointless. Lana’s own open willingness to consider (consider; not accept) a million different ideas and helping hands in the field, despite her own firm knowledge base, has taught me this.

    1. Thank you! And we actually met through this very blog! First we met at an event we were both invited to, then I interviewed her for Running in Heels, then she got in contact with me through my blog’s Instagram account! So, really, it would have never happened if this blog wasn’t here. And thank you again for always being so encouraging, m’dear!

  1. This list is so badass and so true, reading it felt like getting an inside peak into Warren Buffet’s head, if he had any charm or sense of humor. Way to go, the two of you. Have fun taking over the world!

  2. لنا الرشيد شخصية كويتية مشرقة، مساندة للشباب و الإبداع، و مفكرة غير عادية في مجتمع أقل من عادي. إستمتعنا بالمقالة و بإنتظار كل جديد منكم.

    1. مشكورة على الكلام الطيب و أكيد أنا أؤيد رأيك بالمبدعة الي هي لنا الرشيد. فعلاً إنسانه مافي منها إثنين.

  3. “Look up in the sky, its a Bird… its a Plane… No Its Superwoman. Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Who, disguised as Lana Al-Resheed, mild mannered marketing guru for a nation-wide magazine fights the unending battle for truth, justice, and the Kuwaiti way.”

    Great story…as always.

  4. لو في يوم صار عندنا وزارة سياحية بالكويت أنا أرشح لنا الرشيد أول إسم لمنصب الوزير من دون أي تردد.

    المقال قوي و صريح و مميز… كتابه رائعة و موضوع أروع.
