THE 7 RARE BREED VIRTUES

Some people call them vices,
we call them virtues

Rare Breeds hurl themselves against the walls of business-as-usual to see what breaks.

Rare Breeds see realities other people can’t and have the nerve to try to bring it into being.

Perfectionism isn’t a bug for Rare Breeds; it’s their operating system. They’re all-in, always on, 24/7.

Rare Breeds come to the table with a fire and fury that puts others to shame.

Rare Breeds are strange. Know who else is strange? Astronauts. Poets. Nobel laureates. Artists. Inventors. Anyone who dares to do what makes us laugh, cry, swoon or gasp in awe.

Rare Breeds are spell-binding orators and seducers, leading the orchestra of people around them and inspiring others to fulfill their potential.

Rare Breeds feel things deeply and trust their gut. They channel their emotions and show up with empathy, kindness, and intuition.

ABOUT RARE BREED

What if you could take the parts of yourself other people criticize and turn those so-called ‘vices’ into your superpowers?

You probably started hearing the whispers from a very early age, “Don’t create a ruckus. Stop being so weird. Forget that crazy dream.“

Sure, you could have a successful life, but only if you climbed the invisible ladder, ground down your prickly points, and marched in time like a dutiful soldier—so you would, in that awful phrase, “fit in.”

Yet, it doesn’t have to be this way. After all, history has shown that conventional thinking is the problem, not the people who disobey or transform it, right?

In Rare Breed, Sunny Bonnell and Ashleigh Hansberger, founders of the much-buzzed about branding agency Motto, offer a rallying cry. The book will teach you how to turn seven traits society condemns—Rebellious, Audacious, Obsessed, Hot-Blooded, Weird, Hypnotic, Emotional—and make them keys to your breakout success.

Packed with from-the-trenches advice, stories of renegade entrepreneurs and artistic provocateurs, Rare Breed shows you how to stop playing it safe, so you can succeed on your own terms.
