OR…how to feel like poop and have no fun. (Actually, that would be a "shitty" post...I didn't write about that!)
I’d like to share a personal story with you.
It's about not Really knowing everything you think you know about yourself. It's about taking scary chances.
I’ve been working in the Commercial Industry for almost 30 years.
I have seen a lot of changes over time, and one of the more welcome ones is a better representation of our worldwide community. There is a more inclusive vision which translates to more people of color, better age representation with more focus on the 45-85 crowd, more body sizes and shapes, LGBTQ, alternative types and generally more everyday folk that don’t necessarily fit into the “norm”.
I am not talkin’ about a perfect world here! Oh my Gawd, don’t get me started! However, there is much more room now for diversity than there has ever been before.
There is also a trend toward finding “real people”. As in people that don’t act for a living. People that really do look like your best friend, your next door neighbour, your doctor, your yoga instructor…there can be a really fresh quality revealed when someone “uninitiated” is in front of the camera.
What does this mean for you?
