As much as I love my job, I know deep in my heart I won’t be in the advertising industry forever, at least on the media side. I don’t know where my calling will be and I know it will come to me as long as I keep practicing what I love. Today I received an e-mail from my former boss and one of my favorite people I’ve ever worked with. He taught me that that life isn’t all about work, because at the end of the day, what we do is just some pixels on a screen. No use crying over spilled Facebook fan likes. He also taught me that it’s fully possible to balance work and your passions outside of work. Besides the exciting news about their first child (the size of an apple right now!), my next favorite part was seeing his REAL signature in place of what I had been used to seeing (VP Account Director) for the two years I’ve worked for him:
Songwriter | Composer | Vocalist | Multi-instrumentalist
Los Angeles CA E: firstname.lastname@example.org
So inspiring, to say the least. And so much joy in my heart for him and his growing family.
IT’S THE SUMMER OF MAKE SOMETHING. (For me: art and music, not babies.)
