Take The Risk

So I technically worked my first food festival. I have to say, I like the food a lot, I like the people I worked with a lot,  so I enjoyed the festival a lot. It was a first year festival in Nashville. Yes, we should make improvements and we will. But for a first-year festival, I say it was a great success.

I’m a strong believer in people who want to be their own boss. People who want to do something different and unique with their lives. People who want to create a positive influence on society. So don’t hate on their dreams or anyone’s dreams for that matter. It takes time.

I strongly believe what these guys believed in this past weekend. Nashville Taco Fest will become something. Maybe not next year or the following year, but if there is enough love and hope to go around, things will certainly go a long way. It’s just a matter of taking the first risk of saying, “Yes, I want to do this!”

Hell, if Miley can take a risk from teeny bopper to pop star… I think you can too.


Starting from the Bottom

A lot of people say to me, “You know you have a long haul ahead of you”. Meaning I’m going to have to work my butt off to get to where I want to be. And I tell them… “Yeah, so what? At least my life will be worth of value and accomplishment when I get there versus living a life that has a 9 to 5 job.”

It’s like anything in life, you have to start from the very bottom. Work your networks, your skills and yourself to get to where you want to be. If you want it bad enough, you will get there.

Here’s something for everyone reading this post: Follow your dream. Do what you want to do, and eventually you’ll be where you want to be.
