Does Imagination meet Business?

Yes, end of blog...

Okay, I'll give you a little more insight. If you can't dream or envision what you want, then you can't create it. In other words, think back to how many times you just arrived at a situation and weren't sure how you got there. What does that sensation feel like? No matter, if it was a good or bad situation, certainly you felt something immediately. You are now aware that even your unconscious mind was reacting to you. 

That happened to me a lot when it came to job offers. For instance, I grew up in the go-go 90s, and companies offered high-paying jobs to young salespeople like me. My only focus was on making a high-dollar salary with commission upside. 

Money, Gold!

The jobs I accepted were based solely on money. When I finally realized that money didn't equate to my happiness, I changed my entire philosophy on life and focused on what I wanted to create. Only then, was I able to start to imagine what I was passionate about, and what was possible.

What Can You Create? 

My new thought pattern gave me ideas and thoughts that started me down a path of creativity I wanted to explore. The first project that I started was creating a TV show that integrated an online membership for Single people living in Chicago. I called it SINGLES TV and wrote a business plan. I first contacted the local cable tv affiliate (RCN) and learned I could take free classes and produce my singles show. Second, I recruited a web designer, an IT team, and a publicist and asked my wife to be a camera person. Finally, I filmed the interviews in a local bar, edited the whole thing, and put them on RCN local cable access. I even added a crawl (website info) at the bottom to let single viewers know they could join the site and connect with the single person they saw on TV. 

Creating this whole concept and putting the show in production took less than six months, and I was able to sell interest in the business in less than a year.

Just Think

My entire experience would not have been possible without my vision to create something new and the lack of fear to try.
I can honestly say I had a lot of fun throughout the whole process and learned a lot along the way.
