The above mentioned words are very well adapted by the "Queen of Luxury" Annastasia Seebohm. As global CEO of QUINTESSENTIALLY, a luxury life style management concierge and service company, Annastasia Seebohm is in the business of granting wishes. Her company provides clients with a range of elite services starting from restaurant reservations, front row tickets, arranging a romantic getaway weekend in the farthest areas of globe to name a few. 
 
In her interaction with the GSD students about her rollercoaster ride to success, it was inspiring to know that she oversees over 60 offices in order to grow QUINTESSENTIALLY'S revenue, which stands at over $100 million globally and rising.
 
Being the youngest CEO at 32, she had a difficult ride of learning and working around the clock, to reiterate that in figures her job involves leading a company that is known for a 24/7 , 365 days services. How does one do that? According to Annastasia, it is all about having a good connection between individuals for the success of any group, smooth less communication and passion. Her advice to young design aspirants and entrepreneurs is to "stay curious and love learning". The aspirers should never hesitate to question the lives and success stories of people who have made a mark for themselves. 
 
Annastasia reiterates in her conversation said 'to be always curious and put your whole soul into it.'  Present time demands great transformation in every field - be it fashion, luxury or design and in order to cope with it, we need to be alert, enthusiastic, eager and at the same time be a good planner.
