I always get asked the question “What do you want to do with your life”. When I say “I’m getting my own business started”, the inevitable follow up is “Doing what?”. This is the part where I freeze up. I know what I want to do but it feels like people expect me to lay out a detailed plan, and frankly, I have not been confident enough to do that. But a big part of life is being able to sell yourself, so here it is. This is for all the people that gave me a judgemental look after I told them that I majored in business and now am a photographer, videographer, podcaster, and now blogger.
In this creative space, it is tough sledding starting out: you’re not going to be making a ton of money, not many people will see your content, and you’re going to be doing EVERYTHING yourself. If you’re not persistent, you will get burnt out. So why does anybody even enter the creative space? Because all us creators want to live the lifestyle we want to live. We dream that after all of those long nights of hard work, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Truth is though, you’re not going to be able to do it alone.
This is where I come in. I want to build a company that takes the burden off of the creator’s shoulders by connecting you with the people that can help you. Most of all, we want the individual to still maintain their personal brand and control over their content. We want to take all the advantages of consolidation while also keeping the individuality of the content creator.
But I also want AML Creative to create content. One of my big dreams is to have my own TV show. However, I know how hit or miss that business is, soI want to first build up a content creating base with blogs, pictures, short videos and eventually build my way up to movies and TV shows. We’re going to be in a lot of segments, but if successful, the sky’s the limit.
Both sides of my grandparents immigrated to the United States after WWII. They crossed the vast pacific ocean to a foreign land in order to live the lives they wanted. They were trailblazers, and now, I find myself part of a new era of trailblazers that arose from the ashes of COVID-19, ready to build a great new world. Let’s do this!
