Heroes In Black X Fashion Santa: Holiday Heroes And My First Billboard.
He called me up one day and asked if I was free to come to an important meeting he was having and that he would like me to be there, I checked the schedule, set the appointment, planned to meet up at OutFront Media Canada‘s head office. Little did I know this meeting would be one with the VP, and that we’d be discussing their partnership with Heroes In Black and the upcoming national billboard campaign that they would be donating for the upcoming Christmas holiday initiatives…and I was not only going to be the photographer for the campaign, but I was about to be given a lead role as Senior Photographer at Heroes In Black. Speechless.
If you told me 3.5 years ago when I was let go from my day job that it would be the push I needed to go out and succeed on the level I have in my dream job I would have laughed in disbelief, now, I laugh because I know it’s possible and I’m humored by how afraid I was at failing.
So if there’s one thing I want to leave you with it’s this; Most people give up before they even give themselves a chance to succeed, don’t be that person, be the person that keeps pushing and pushing no matter how many obstacles get set in your way…because all of your dreams are out there, and they’re for the most part attainable, you just need to not let anything stop you. Leave your fear of failure in 2017, may your 2018 be everything you wanted and then some.
If you’d like to come out and volunteer with Heroes In Black feel free to reach out to them via their website, or Facebook.
