August 2016 will forever be the month and year that my life changed. The month that God picked me up by my shoulders and placed me on the path I have wanted to follow since birth. Allow me to elaborate;
I was laid off from my job. I worked at this company for over 4 years, providing a reputation for excellence on their behalf. Still efficient at my job, I was told I was being laid off due to the company moving in a different direction. Many would be ENRAGED at this, but I saw an opportunity. I didn't fight for my job, because I have known for a long time that my purpose on this earth is bigger than a 9-5. So I collected my belongings, promised to stay in touch with friends, and happily drove home to prepare for the future.
Ever since, I have been in countless meetings, bumped elbows with some really amazing people in the industry, and began working full time for Dragon Score Sound. The past two weeks have been spent recording, making demos, sending material for review and prep for performances. My dreams are becoming a reality! As always, I will keep you all updated on progress of whats going on. Before I leave you however, I would like to share two quotes that have attributed to my mental shift:
"No one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it." - Napoleon Hill
"The question isn't who is going to let me, it's who is going to stop me?" - Ayn Rand
