how to lose a girl in one date. coming soon.

How do you lose a girl in one date? Let me count the ways… But before I do, I will give you a little background to this story.

Four years ago, I packed up and moved out to LA to pursue my career in acting. I didn’t know what to expect. What to do. Where to go. I still don’t. But my dad once said something that stuck with me.

If you ask anyone who has achieved great success how they go to the “top,” they will likely tell you they had the confidence they would succeed and just figured it out along the way, taking one step at a time.

There’s a great quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. that is such a beautiful picture of this:

“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.” 

Now, having faith that everything will work out and that success will come is great. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have to do our part, taking the first step, and then the next, and then the next…

There’s another quote I love by Ann Landers:

“Opportunities are often disguised as hard work, so most people don’t recognize them.”

Ain’t that the truth.

As an actor in LA, it doesn’t take long for one to realize how incredibly competitive an industry this is. Even if you are incredibly talented, there are no guarantees for success. I believe those who do achieve success do so through a combination of perseverance (through all the rejection) and being proactive (making things happen for themselves.)

So, instead of sitting around waiting for my agents and manager to call me with an audition, instead of waiting for an opportunity to come my way, to magically show up on my doorstep… and let’s be honest: very rarely, if ever, will an opportunity just show up at your doorstep… unless you’re on one of those tv shows where some guy with a huge, oversized check shows up at your door with cameras and tells you that you just won millions of dollars…

I have decided to get out there and make my own. Why wait for someone to hire me to play a role when I can write one for myself?

I have combined my love for writing and acting along with my plethora of – eh hem, interesting – dating experiences to create a series called, “how to lose a girl in one date.”

I have developed the concept, storyline, and characters. I have written the first season. I have sat around wondering how I would ever get this shot. I have doubted my efforts completely. And then I have decided to take a step of faith.

And the Lord has been so faithful. I have prayed that the right team would come together to make this possible, and God has truly begun to bring such an incredible group of individuals together to help me bring this vision to life. And I can’t wait to see who else he brings together to play a part in turning hard work into opportunity, turning a dream into reality, and ultimately turning a tragedy into a comedy.

And YOU can be part of that team. Find out how, HERE.

Until then, I will leave you with some very deep, very profound words from the a great and wise lyricist of our time:

“I’m not the girl who always has a boyfriend; I’m the girl who rarely has a boyfriend.” – Taylor Swift

That’s deep, Taylor. So very deep.
