I love Eleanor Roosevelt . . . it was she who said, “Do one thing every day that scares you.”
I try to. I try to do those Crossfit box jumps when every fiber of my being tells me that I’m gonna miss and scrape all the skin from my shins. I try to say “yes,” to social media face recognition tagging for photo favors, wondering how in the world I’m gonna get it done. I make it a point to ask for what I want, even if I’m afraid of rejection or hearing another “no.”
Case in point. Thomspon Creek Window Company marketing director George Schaub partners with me to conceptualize and shoot two football players for an endorsement campaign. My gut was to say, “Wow, George, . . . thanks, but I’m an available light shooter.” But I said, “yes, of course I can:)” . . .and then I called in my mentors for advice. Kim Green of Kimberley Brooke.com, Ken Kinard of Accent Interactive and my associate rock star associate Tim Hinsche. Oh, and a little help from my guys at Deepetch. Here is the result.
And just let me say . . .shooting windows with no reflection . . .next to impossible without a black surround with a little hole cut for the lens. Yep . . .I never pretend that I can do it all on my own. It’s my team of people that have my back. And, yes, that’s why I say “yes,” when people come to me for help. That’s how it’s supposed to be. Enough good for all of us. And for that, I am grateful.
Haloti and Ryan. yep. Both those guys are the real deal. Truly and honestly good, upstanding respectful men. That’s why good has followed them, and I will continue to be fans of them both.
