Some people do not have a problem with starting new things. They can just dive right into it. I admire those people. Me on the other I have to contemplate the pros and cons. I have to think if I will truly benefit and if it will benefit others. My very first job as a telemarketer seemed like it was for a good cause but in order to get ahead, I had to lie to people. I couldn’t do well because it didn’t sit right with me that I had to be dishonest with people to get their money. I didn’t last long there. I quickly got a new job at an optometrist office where I knew the manager. When she interviewed me she basically asked me what hours can I work and that was it. She already knew my work ethic. This was my experience I later used to get my job at My Eye Dr, which I wrote about here. This was also before I worked at Disney, which I wrote about here. But helping others is important to me.
I really have been trying to be consistent with my blog post every Wednesday, but you know life. So this week I am giving you two posts. Here is a short film I produced for the 48 Hour Film Festival. Of course, there is a whole story behind this and I am going to upload that later today. For now, here is the film.
When I was in my early 20’s I thought I was going to be doing amazing things that I could brag about, like being a New York Times best selling author, or a backpacker, or some type of humanitarian. I was full of hopes and dreams. So when I got fired from one of my first jobs out of college I literally thought the world was over.
Lately, I have been reflecting on some of the high and low points in my life. I couldn’t help but remember critical moments that changed my whole perspective causing me to question all my beliefs. In the next few weeks, I feel compelled to share these moments with you. I want to take you on a journey of how I arrived here in this mental and physical space. I’m in a sweet spot now. I feel good about myself, I’m happy, I’m progressing in my career, things are going great. My stories are not going to be chronological, but they will be worth reading. Today I am going to write about the time a situation caused me to relocate. Have you ever made a major decision that was out of the ordinary and found yourself explaining to others why you decided to do it? You give them your explanation and find yourself repeating the same story over and over while deep down you know it’s not the whole truth. That was me when I decided to move to Texas.Read More
About 10 years ago, I embarked on a journey of a lifetime. I don’t just write those words to fill up space on the page. It was literally one of the best experiences of my life. One of my most memorable jobs was working for Disney. When I was young I always dreamed of going to Disney as most children do. I always told myself that one day I will make it. So when recruiters came to my college for the Disney College program I saw it as the perfect opportunity. Exactly ten years ago around this time, I was getting on a plane to live and work in Kissimmee, Florida to work for Disney. Here are my reasons why working for Disney was great.
