Ain’t no half steppin’

Pursuing a career in low budget indie filmmaking made me think of the lyrics for the song by the same title. No..not the Big Daddy Kane rap. I’m referring to the 70’s funk hit by Heat Wave. I’ve found you have to be all in. The competition is so fierce that there are no other activities that can be fit into one’s activities. This is a business of relationships. Build them. Build the important ones. Looking for money? Go to where the money is. Mingle and ingratiate yourself with those money people. Read. Absorb. Network and above all, keep creating.

No half steppin’ …Are you good enough to show?

Do you think you got the soul? …Are you sharp enough to shine?
