Over the last year I’ve jumped into a few *small* projects to help a friend or potential client get to the Next Level. Some of them were easy – some not so much. But at each opportunity to jump in and help, I found myself stretching and growing and being lifted up to that Next Level myself. I’ve become a better production designer, lighting designer, tech operator, operations director, leadership coach, and business man.

And ultimately, this seems to be the secret to getting to that Next Level. Helping others, helps me. Helping others trickles out and finds new projects in new categories with new clients and more opportunities to help make the world better. I’m still working on branding and business plans and all that official stuff, but the one thing I know I’m about is Helping Others to reach the Next Level in whatever it is their doing.
