I don’t know how many of you in the audience are in occupations where you are paid for creating something that didn’t exist before you put your mind to it, not before you put a lot of money into technology to help you create it. It can be as simple as writing a story—where once there was a void, and now there is an idea. Everybody has experienced that wonderful feeling of finishing a story and saying, “Gee, this is terrible, but I did it and it’s done.” The struggle you have in the process, to get the words on paper, that’s a universal struggle.

Video production services to the public, to say the least.
As much profit as there is in this market (events, commercials, and etc), there’ s a deep hole inside of me that is not fully satisfying my creative hunger.
I believe there is something more out there that is calling my name, but I’ve yet discovered it due to financial resources and time. Time more than anything.

Don’t make too much public promises. Quietly work in the background.
Make it happen.
Get it together.
“A film or book can be a hit for many reasons –timing, new, technology, hip language. But only one thing makes it classic — a good story that speaks to the truth of being human” — Brian McDonald
Everyone wants to go viral. But little want to be contagious.
Contagious is the new classic.
It takes lots of time and strategy more than money. Discipline, consistency, and priorities are other factors. Your whole life practically.
Rather than trying to build a buzz; build fundamentals. Become a master of the craft.
Give like crazy.
In return, you’ll receive something so powerful that it will blow away your expectations.
Ok, back to creating.
It’s a tough call when you decide and say to yourself that you will be living off the internet.
It’s not the lazy route at all. The complete contrary. It will demand lots of work and planning.
The idea of setting up the challenge of a constant day-to-day creativity, knowledge in ad-revenue, marketing, networking, and social media is overwhelming.
That’s why you need to be passionate about it. Passion will over rule and remind you why you are doing things after the coffee and energy drink wears out. Continue Reading…
When you finally fall upon an idea you love, there’s not one thing that can stop you but yourself — and death of course.

Fear, doubt, and insecurity might get in the way. But did it stop you as a kid when you wildly imagined the impossible?
As I get ready for 2014, my experiment approaches.
Let’s make it happen.
