Where We Are Going Today: The Concept Store

  • This is the perfect place to shop for unique products or unusual birthday gifts for your friends and family

The Concept Store offers a selection of lifestyle products supplied or made by homegrown businesses.
The shop, which opened this year in Jeddah’s Al-Muhammadiyah district, on Al-Amir Sultan Branch, is the first concept store in the city run by a Saudi couple with the aim of supporting homegrown businesses by offering them a place to showcase their products.
They have assembled a wide range of items, including abayas and other clothing, shoes, accessories, home decorations and many types of gifts.
This is the perfect place to shop for unique products or unusual birthday gifts for your friends and family. Its location, on the second floor of well-known gift-wrap shop Paper Moon, is perfect and extremely convenient, which definitely makes it a top choice if you are running out of time while shopping for presents.
For those looking to sell rather than buy it is also the perfect place to showcase products, as the store offers shelf space at very reasonable rental prices, making it a good way to kick-start a small business.

What We Are Reading Today: Dare to Lead by Brene Brown

  • Leadership is not about titles, status and power over people

In her No.1 NYT bestsellers, Brene Brown taught us what it means to dare greatly, rise strong and brave the wilderness. 

Leadership is not about titles, status and power over people. Leaders are people who hold themselves accountable for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and developing that potential. This is a book for everyone who are ready to choose courage over comfort, make a difference and lead, says a review published on goodread.com.

Brown spent the past two decades researching the emotions that give meaning to our lives. Over the past seven years, she found that leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations and Fortune 50 companies, are asking the same questions:

How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders? And, how do you embed the value of courage in your culture?

Dare to Lead answers these questions and gives us actionable strategies and real examples from her new research-based, courage-building program.

When we dare to lead, we do not pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We do not see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it and work to align authority and accountability.
