Logan Campbell has spent the better part of the last decade working VIP services/operations with the Tao Group and Caesars Entertainment at some of the hottest venues in Las Vegas. It’s no wonder when Paul Hemming was bringing his Temple Nightclub concept to Denver that Logan would be recruited to join the management team. Logan is a true professional through and through! I have been partying in nightclubs for over 16 years and never have I felt so appreciated for being at a nightclub than when I see Logan at Temple. It does not matter if you are spending $10,000 on bottle service or just on the guest list Logan truly makes everyone feel loved, respected and welcomed. I wanted to peel back the skin and see what really makes Logan tick. Below is one of the most in depth and insightful interviews I have ever done!
Q: What purchase of $100 or less has most positively impacted your life in the last six months?
A: Full transparency here. To answer you honestly, it would be an $80 session with the holistic therapist that I see weekly, Jessica Smith. I think that it is invaluable to have someone to reflect on, especially her. She gives me the best objective clarity that one could ask for. To summarize, it’s like talking to yourself…when you invest money in your progress, you tend to listen, apply, and celebrate the benefits more frequently. For those of you naysayers out there, give it a try. You will thank me later.
Q: How has a failure, or apparent failure set you up for later success? Do you have a “favorite failure“?
A: Personally, I don’t live in a world with society’s idea of “failure”. For me, I look at every opportunity I am faced with to learn. So in retrospect, you might ask- What’s the best lesson you have learned. My answer would be simple. The best lesson I have learned in this lifetime is that at the end of fear and/or failure is success, so embrace challenges and get back up when you fall. Fail frequent, fail forward, fail fast.
Q: What is one of the best or most worthwhile investments you’ve ever made?
A: Tough one. I can tell you that investing genuine time and energy into the people around you will take you far in life. People come first. In doing this, you can build an army of value adding soldiers that will follow you wherever you go and pick you up when you get your legs chopped off.
Q: What is an unusual habit or an absurd thing that you love?
A: Hmmm. Well, I am OCD like you have never seen before. Open cabinets, crooked paintings, and clutter give me anxiety. I don’t know if you would call that an unusual habit but I can’t move on without fixing what I feel is out of place. I have a strange addiction to whiteboards and I love it. What I write on them happens 9 times out of 10. I have way too many whiteboards in my possession is my point.
Q: In the last five years, what new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved in your life?
A: Breathing. Exercise. Qigong. Tempering my words and actions with wisdom…still very much in progress- for those of you that know me well.
Q: What advice would you give to a smart, driven college student about to enter the “real world”?
A: Save 20% of every dollar you make. Under promise and over deliver with everything and everyone in life. Don’t complain or explain. Remember names and don’t forget to stop and smell the roses. Humility is key. Love as hard as you f#$king can and NEVER give up.
Q: In the last five years, what have you become better at saying no to?
A: Not much, I am very much a “yes” person. But- If I could give you an answer, it would be to entertaining plans/people/ideas that don’t add value.
Q: When you feel overwhelmed or unfocused, what do you do?
A: Breath. And if I have a good friend nearby, a firm smack on the face has always been an effective remedy.
