Take Control – A JD Rant (with video)
Slogans have meanings, my friends. I can tell you that breakfast CAN be the most important meal of the day, but this is not a blog about nutrition. This is a blog about taking control and motivating yourself to move forward in your career. It’s all about the #NoExcuses mantra and with this video, I’m not just taking about it, I’m being about it!
One of my motivations was my friend Jenna who I know because she runs a group for on-camera hosts on Facebook. Proactive, right? Well, today she took it another step. She was asking for suggestions for a new DSLR camera, so that she could use that tool to take control of her own career. This is in the rant, but if you want to follower her awesomeness on Twitter, I got the hookup for you. Get thee to Twitter and follow @jennatimetweets. Hit her up with some #NoExcuses props…you know, after you finish with this blog! 🙂
A Host of Issues
Not every job in front of the camera is acting…just ask anyone who’s seen a movie starring Kristen Stewart! I kid….I kid!
Besides actors, your screens are also graced with hosts delivering various content to you, on every screen that you own. As much as I’m known as a “funny guy”, my most-seen work in the biz, is as a host on America’s Minority Health Network (www.amhntv.com). AMHN plays in doctors’ waiting rooms across the country.
I know, I know…”hosting” sounds glamorous, right? Well, read on my friends. Oh…there’s video too.
