I left a 26-year career and financial security, then started (almost) all over again...
It took me from the age of 18 to the age of 42 to realize what I was doing I was good at, but it wasn't my passion. It took me another three years to find the courage to walk away from a steady income that provided for my family. (To be honest, a pandemic sort of forced my hand.) Despite being undeniably and completely afraid, I had to take the leap and go all-in on what I truly enjoyed -- writing.
With the support of my wonderful wife, two kids, and about 15 animals (depending on the given day) I made the move from the dance floor to the studio. I turned the writing jobs into hosting gigs and production contracts and I couldn't be happier. I believe anyone can do what I did.
Teacher >> DJ >> Creator
I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT EVERY EXPERIENCE OFFERS YOU THE SKILL SET TO CRUSH WHATEVER COMES NEXT...
I went to school and got my Bachelor of Education, I literally fell into the professional disc jockey scene, and I grew a mobile business to seven figures before I decided to walk away and park my butt in my studio office. Now I'm a writer, producer, and educator and none of that would have been possible without the skills I picked up along the way.
DEGREES, DANCE FLOORS, AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE
HERE IS WHAT I SAID
"I love to create. Every time I performed at a wedding or corporate function, I was setting the emotional tone of the room. Today, everything I write, produce, or edit still has the ability to entertain and serve.
There's nothing more satisfying than starting with a blank canvas and coming up with something that can affect someone's life, even if only in some small way."
- Jim Parsons on the "Content Creators College Podcast"
From My Book
HERE IS WHAT I WROTE
"What are you willing to try that you might have otherwise and previously overlooked? I went from writing about one team to daily columns and making a full-time income. Once that worked, I streamlined a process that made sense for me. I began coaching other writers, teaching content techniques, and producing video content on a regular basis." -
