R is for Resource. What resources do you bring to the table that makes you unique or stand out?

I think quick so that helps me be creative on the spot, not afraid to entertain large or small crowds, decent connections to help finish music that I mostly have conceived.  I have had other businesses already working for me so that helps me not have to depend on others which helps me be able to focus on my goals and making music for souls.

The 11 Things I learned From DABO SWINNEY

December 17, 2017

As the guest speaker at the 10th Annual Sports Visions Awards Luncheon Clemson University Head Football Coach Dabo Swinney did not disappoint.

Coach Swinney gave back more to the audience than they could possibly take in. During Mr. Dabo’s presentation he inspired and motivated other players and coaches with what he called his fundamentals for success through stories, quotes, scriptures and words of encouragement.

The St. Luke Church was buzzing with excitement and if you were not there I’m here to take you there by summarizing what happened and how this message changed our lives so through his name I present to you the “11Things I Learned From DABO SWINNEY.”

(D) is for Dream. Don’t be afraid to dream big but set goals with a vision for your success.

(A) is for Active. Be involved and stay involved in school and community programs.

(B) is for Build. Surround yourself with good and tough people so you can build and have positive relationships.

(O) is for Over. Don’t buy into being an over achiever but speak belief into your life and say “I’m not an overachiever I’m an over believer.”

(S) is for Spiritual. In order to have success on and off the field you have to have a spiritual foundation in your life.

(W) is for What. People say someday I will do this and someday I will do that. What you do today determines when your someday will be.

(I) is for Individual. People that are successful know that separation comes from preparation.

(N) is for Now. Don’t take anything for granted so start to bloom where you are planted.

(N) is for Never. Never Ever let people walk through your mind with dirty feet.

(E) is for Education. Getting your diploma and degree is a game changer and it can take you out of the long line and place you in the short line.

(Y) is for You. You can be successful and make a difference. You can work hard and out work others.

When you hear Dabo Swinney conduct interviews or talk to his team in the locker room it will not help you understand how great he is and why he is one of the top coaches in the world until you hear him speak and share his story and still give God glory. I hope this message inspired you like the 11 Things I Learned From DABOR SWINNEY inspired me.

TIP Tuesday

May 2, 2017
Welcome to TIP (To Increase Possibilities) Tuesday where I give you a nugget that can help you build a gold mine.
Use your blog or social media to feature others in and outside of your network and industry.
A few years ago I was asked to do PR for a great friend and it was put in my spirit to start a blog called Today’s Honoree where other people would nominate other people. Today’s Honoree at http://www.TodaysHonoree.com has now featured over 1,000 people and it gives each person that is featured the power to pay it forward and nominate others that deserve recognition.
Here are the basic resources you need to give back to others.
1. Picture.
2. Bio or resource box.
3. Website or blog
4. Social media links
When you give up space to promote another face it will organically take your dream to an incredible unknown place. The unknown can take you from working for someone to working on your own.
Stop looking at others like they are a funny creature but look inside them and see how to tell their story with a feature.

DERRICK Interview with Blind Filmmaker Michael Schwartz

November 11, 2016

michaelschwartzEncouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes gives a DERRICK Interview by asking 7 questions through each letter of his first name to give you an insightful perspective from other experts, entrepreneurs, celebrities and up and coming super stars.

Today’s DERRICK Interview is with Michael Schwartz who is a legally blind filmmaker and owner of Trailhead Productions brings fifteen years of experience in television news and production to the table, and you’ll see what that means all along the way. An award winning reporter, Michael knows television and works for you with the same dedication and ideals valued by the best in the business.   “We’re the storytellers, not the story.”  That means that at Trailhead, we never forget that you and your dreams are the stars of the show.

D is for Dream. What is your dream, goals or what have you achieved?

I’m a big believer in breaking through boundaries. Although I’ve been gradually losing my eyesight since I was thirteen years old, my dream was to pursue a career in visual storytelling, and I’ve never taken “no” for an answer. Through a career as a broadcast reporter and photographer, and now as a documentary filmmaker, I’ve seen firsthand that it’s possible to merge the worlds of visual storytelling and visual impairment. From my first job all the way through my current film. Following my own passions, though, cannot and should not be the end of the story. My dream is to change perceptions, raise expectations and make a difference in the world of inclusion for people with disabilities.

E is for Education. What is your educational background and how do you use it daily?

I went to the University of Missouri School of Journalism. What I loved so much about my education there is that no matter what your specific goals were, you had to learn everything about the business. It wasn’t good enough to want to be just an anchor, or a reporter, or a photographer, or any of the other jobs in journalism. You had to learn it all, and I had so many opportunities to learn skills that have benefited me throughout my career as a storyteller. Understanding what makes up a good picture, learning how to tell a concise story, understanding how to combine dozens of stories to build a newscast that makes sense… it’s all about crafting stories that make a difference.

R is for Resource. What resources do you bring to the table that makes you unique or stand out?

The first resource actually doesn’t have anything to do with tools of the trade. It has to do with drive and resilience. The fact of the matter is that if you’re going to be a visual storyteller who’s visually impaired, there has to be an inner belief in yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself, nothing else matters.

I also rely on the twin pillars of of communication and partnership. While it’s easy to talk about the mechanics of how I do my job – working with the spatial and acoustic dynamics of an environment or a set to frame a shot, or shooting on a 4K camera to edit in a 1080 timeline, or not thinking of color itself as much as color profiles to use waveforms and vectorscopes to craft the mood and design of a shot, these are all just that” mechanics. They explain how do my job, but not why I do my job. I do my job because I get to work with a team of creative professions who share a creative vision. It’s what gets me up every morning in search of great stories to tell.

R is for Ready. When did you realize you were ready for what you are doing now?

I think the key to realizing your dreams is that you shouldn’t wait until you feel you’re 100% ready. The truth is that day may never come. There will always be at least one unanswered question, one skill you could hone a little more, one step you may feel you’re not ready to take yet. Life is about leaps of faith. When I set out to start my own business, one based on a risky proposition and an uncertain outcome – staring a video production company even though I’m visually impaired – the one thing I had was a belief that I could succeed. Yes, you start a venture with as many resources as you can muster and your prepare as much as you can, but success is based on action, and action requires at least a certain amount of faith in yourself. Really, I knew I was ready because I believed in myself.

I is for Individual. Name at least one individual in your network that others should learn more about and why?

I can’t speak highly enough of my colleague and friend Maxwell Ivey. Max calls himself the Blind Blogger, but his life is about so much more than his blindness. It’s about always seeking self-improvement, expanding horizons and making a difference. Max knows how to start with a dream, use the resources he’s developed over the course of a lifetime of finding unique solutions to difficult challenges, learning new skills to help him achieve his goals and always looking to the future.

C is for Challenges. What challenges have you had to overcome?

I believe that the challenge anyone with a dream has to overcome is facing down low expectations. What I’ve found is that people tend to rise to the expectations we set for them. As a creative artist – a filmmaker – who is visually impaired, I work every day not only to coordinate a creative vision with my team, but also to lead others to a world where there is no barrier to achievement. I direct and even shoot documentaries, and will continue to do this throughout and beyond the process of losing my eyesight. This is because there is a certain truism that we all have to come to accept, that pursuing one’s passion is the best starting point, because there are no barriers to accomplishment.

K is for Key. What keys to success can you leave for upcoming entrepreneurs and leaders?

There is really one key to success. Set the bar high for yourself and for those who share your passions. This doesn’t mean you’ll never make a mistake. As they say, that’s why pencils have erasers. High expectations push you to challenge yourself, and it motivates you to constantly question your own assumptions… even the ones you don’t know you have. Expecting the highest level of performance from everyone you work with encourages you to pursue nothing short of excellence.

Michael is a friend of mine, and I want to encourage you to support his new documentary series, “The Palette Project: Losing Sight, Maintaining A Vision.” He’s made it really easy to pledge with a micropayment of just $1 for the videos he’s posting on his Patreon feed. This is a great way to show your support, and you can make a difference by helping him make a difference. Plus, you get to see some pretty amazing videos of some pretty amazing people, and learn what it’s like to be a visually impaired filmmaker. – Maxwell Ivey
