Last week I went to Georgia for my birthday. I thought about canceling the trip so many times. I created plenty of excuses on why I couldn’t go. While spending some time meditating and praying, I realized I needed to go. Perhaps, getting away from Broward County would give me the break I so needed.
One of my goals for this year was to visit Georgia. The idea was on my vision board and also in one of my journal entries. Needless to say, because of Facebook I found out some of my friends were in Atlanta as well. (Oh, I forgot to mention, I traveled to Georgia solo for a 5Linx Conference.)
Auntie Annie’s Pretzels Start Conversation
The best part of the trip ironically, included Auntie Annie pretzels. A young lady sitting to my right on the plane offered me some Auntie Annie’s cinnamon sugar pretzel bites. I wasn’t hungry, but who turns down Auntie Annie’s Pretzels? Not JP.
This was a nice gesture on her behalf. Sharing her snack with the total stranger sitting next to her. I looked up to say thank you while realizing she was very beautiful. (Check out her picture above.) Her smile was genuine. So the questions began. What brings you to town? Etc.
Invest in Yourself
Needless to say we got into a great conversation recapping some moments of our trips. She was in Georgia for a model casting call. Her second audition had her really excited. Modeling is her passion and she has no trouble investing in her dream. The flights and all trip expenses were out of her pocket.
Facts For Millennials
After our great conversation, I stopped and thought about her situation. A few concepts stood out.
1. You must invest in yourself.
2. You are your brand.
3. Nothing comes without sacrifice.
4. Life is about taking chances.
I gave her some complimentary coaching tips such as hosting events and modeling locally for various brands to fund her passion further. Instagram shout outs for personal and brands was an easy way to make extra money.
The main point of this post is… you are your brand. There is something unique that you provide to the universe. Find a way to get paid for your gifts. If what you do cost money, do something to fund it.
Life is better when you have something to look forward to.
Needless to say, there is an opportunity to work with her to develop her signature statement and brand herself for greater opportunities.
