“Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.” — John Steinbeck

Me at 7 years old. Dreaming big.

Do you ever feel like you have a head full of ideas and you don’t know where to start? What to do, how to grow bigger and do bigger things?  How to set yourself apart from everyone else?

I know that feeling.  I LOVE that feeling. While some might let it completely overwhelm you, the people who are truly successful know how to handle those ideas and turn them into something amazing.  The extra work, the late nights, the racing thoughts for all the amazing ways that you might take something? Oh, give me all of those moments.

There’s something amazing coming, I can feel it. Hampton Roads, our industry across the nation, across the world, is craving something more creative and more amazing than any of us have ever seen.

If we’re being completely honest, I’m about to announce something big.  HUGE.  With one of my favorite people in this world, Mike Dragon of Dragon Studio. And the start of it is happening tomorrow at 2pm on Facebook Live.  I’m hoping that I’m part of this amazing change that I can feel coming.  Having these big ideas and being able to implement them with someone who chases after their dreams maybe even more than I chase after mine makes all of this even more fun.

Don’t like where you are? Don’t like where you see things going? Tired of trying to fit into a mold? Change it. Do it. I promise, it’ll be one of the most fulfilling things that you can do.

Are you following the ISO:ALT Facebook page and Instagram?  It’s my hope that it’s going to change the way that we all look at what we do, and make us all a little better.  That’s where you’ll see the big announcement, the Facebook Live feed, and more – and hopefully you’ll feel the incredible excitement that we do. Because it’s about to get real, and all the hard work is going to be well worth it.

“You are not a one dimensional human being. You are not your social media etiquette, a picture, a few things said under stress or through misunderstanding. You are much more. You are a fearless and wonderful soul who loves greatly. The people that matter are the ones that see all the dimensions of your soul, not just the superficial. They will climb inside that box with you not because they are not sure if they will ever find your uniqueness in another person. They do so because they feel safe enough to share their uniqueness with you. They see your faults and know that they have them also. They feel the walls lowered and the freedom of being themselves. Honesty is never guarded or regretted. That is what makes that box home.”

― Shannon L. Alder
