KIMI SELFRIDGE, 26.
Best advice you got so far: “The best advice was something I discovered on my own, which is to never stop doing what you love, I carry this motto with me and share it with others along the way.”
A dream of yours: “Since I was a little kid, I knew I wanted to influence the world in a positive way.”

Best advice you got so far: “The best advice I’ve been given recently, is something I repeat to myself everyday as I work to build the startup I’m working on. That’s not to fear and suffer for something that hasn’t happened. We spend so much time worrying about the wrong ways things can go, but until that happens, I’m going to breathe slowly and persevere. I also recently read a quote from Steve Jobs, that we should have no fear as we’re already naked for the world to see. For me, that’s inspiring, because it means there’s nothing to loose, and no shame in what we do.”
A dream of yours: “I’m partly living my dream right now, which is why I fear waking up and it not being true. My dream is to challenge myself to create something which can revolutionise the way we do things and improve it with something better, more creatively driven and accessible to everyone. That’s our ambition with Latitude. That, combined with travel, culture and love provides stimulation for the brain, the soul and the heart. Then I’m complete.”

Best advice you got so far: “Best advice I was given is to live in the now. You never know what the future will bring and it’s not good to have regrets.”
A dream of yours: “My ambition has always been to run my own business. Also to travel to Costa Rica at some point.”

SADE STREHLKE, 25.
Fashion blogger and writer, http://www.theiconconcierge.com
Best advice you got so far: “The best advice anyone has ever given me was that love fades, but respect lasts forever. While the advice was geared towards me as a new bride, it can really be applied to anything and any relationships. Relationships with friends, bosses, colleagues and just your general attitude in life. You may not always love your work, school or people in your life, but if you respect them you can always work through the rough times.”
A dream of yours: “I moved to Los Angeles at 17 to be an actress. While I love being a blogger and writer, I would still love to one day win an Oscar or star in an action flick. Okay, that’s probably everyone’s dream. A more practical goal would probably be to work for Vogue one day.”

Best advice you got so far: “I’ve been given loads of good (and not so good) advice in my time! Something that particularly sticks in my mind was my Dad endlessly advising me not to give up languages. Of course I did at the first possible opportunity and I now really regret. Oh and not to mix your drinks, another very sound piece of advise I break on a weekly basis.”
A dream of yours: “To run my own business and/or own a 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel in every single colour.”

Best advice you got so far: “The best advice I got so far is to always do what I enjoy doing, follow my dreams and aspirations and make sure they become a reality. That and ‘if he doesn’t reply to your text, he is not into you’. Saved me HOURS of torture.”
A dream of yours: “Writing a book (and getting it published), but I’ve now done that and I am actually in the process of trying to start working on a second one. Another dream is to go live in America for a while, or at least do a coast to coast road trip there with my husband and daughter. ”

Best advice you got so far: “Somebody once said… good things are like oil and eventually will always surface above water… meaning work hard, be honest and be patient ”
A dream of yours: “I have so many, I want a third kid and I guess that some part of me would just like to take it easier and open a cool looking bio/organic supermarket.”

Best advice you got so far: “The best pieces of advice that I have received in life so far have all come from my parents, who are a gold mine of encouraging, sage words. Amongst the simplest and earliest advice I can remember has probably been “go for it”. They raised me to believe that anything can be achieved through commitment and hard work, so I was to never think that barriers were anything but hurdles over which to leap. Nothing could stop me.”
A dream of yours: “During those long nights studying for law exams, I would dream of one day owning a gallery filled with the work of my favourite 20th century photographers. It’ll happen one day.”

Best advice you got so far: “To try anything once, even if it makes you happy even if it makes you sad even if it brings you up or even if it brings you down, even if you do it right or even if you do it wrong because when you try that’s when you learn.”
A dream of yours: “My dream is to travel the world, discover the unseen, meet the people and learn the culture! and to publish my own travelling book.”

Best advice you got so far: “Try not to do something just for money, cos you would spend the money by no reason too. Try to listen to your heart, do something you like, the memory is something you cannot buy.”
A dream of yours: “Have my own library”
