What I learned from Ken Honeywell, Creative Director at Well Done Marketing

Audacity, hard work and big ideas

Ken Honeywell is a Creative Director at Well Done Marketing in Fountain Square. He has over 30 years of experience as a copywriter and creative director and is one of the chaps behind Tonic Ball, an annual fundraising music festival. When he’s not creating great work , you can find him running Punchnels.com, a web magazine, and working on his next novel.

Here’s what I learned from Ken Honeywell about advertising, building a great team and creating a better world:

1. I can teach you grammar but I can’t teach you great ideas (about hiring good talent).

2. Don’t let your idealism get you down.

3. The best thing my dad told me: “if you are good at what you do, you’ll find work.”

4. Don’t be shy.

5. Find a need and fill it.

6. The future is content.

7. If the scene you want isn’t here, create it.

8. Try to work for someone else for 3 – 5 years, you can benefit from the discipline.

9. Own it and build it.

10. Don’t hide behind an organization. 

Words are Ken Honeywell’s, spelling and grammar errors, other mistakes are mine.
