Limor Fried on the power in proving people wrong.
LIMOR FRIED: Being underestimated is the greatest gift somebody can give you. When you're underestimated, you have a lot of freedom to do what you want without worry of disappointing them. You've already disappointed them. It's too late. It's over, right? Like what's the worst they're going to do?
I think anyone who's creative has, like, deep-seated self-esteem problems. And I think you just kind of harness that and ride it.
