Well, Its time to Post again!! This time we are going to talk about... The Village!!!
Nooooo, not the Film!!
Who is in your Village?? Who is a part of your Village? When I say the Village, what do I mean??
I mean your Relationships! Your Family!!
Who has come up with you on this wonderful Journey?? Who did you start out with? Who do you keep in touch with?? Who tells you the truth? Loves on You? Calls you when your down? Calls you when you Up?? Helps you get yourself together?? Gives you a mint when your breath stinks... you get the picture!!
Know this, my Village is so beautiful to me that it brings tears to my eyes... There are those who I keep in touch with daily, weekly or monthly. Then there are those who, when we run into each other, its like no time has passed.
That is what I mean by Village!!
My brother, who started me in this business, would say "Tray.. People like to work with People they like and people who work hard. Be there before they get there and stay after they leave" I listened and digested!!
I try to work hard, stay in touch, stay positive and say what I mean and mean what I say.
In any business, you are only as good as your last job!! I have remembered that since I started and I continue to keep it in mind as I go through this journey. My Village consists of Studio Executives, Directors, Producers, A.D's, P.A.'s, Crafty, The Glam Squad, Photographers, Casting Directors, Writers, Lawyers, Doctors, Actors, Interns, Agents, Assistants... all types of wonderful people.
Are you keeping in touch with people? Being supportive?? Do you have a supportive circle of friends? Are you nurturing your relationships??
I hope so!!
I continue to work hard in this area. I make mistakes and fall short at times but Im Trying!!!
Keep Working at it!! Work on your Village!!
