I have been spending a lot of time reflecting over my career path. I have heard everything from "chase your dreams" to "stop wasting your energy on such a pointless endeavor"...aaaaaand I don't care.
I found what I love to do.
Well, actually I found an extension of what I love doing.
I love music. I do. And so do you! I don't know very many people that don't enjoy music. However, more than loving music, I love spreading a message while entertaining. I find meaning in spreading a message that I believe is true and just, and serving some smiles for people's faces.
Recently, I've been delving into my past. Everyone seems to say that you shouldn't dwell on the past, or fret over the future, but I took that too extremely. I actively denied my past and ignored my future. Instead of living in the present, I became trapped in the present, repeating my past, never moving forward, but I digress.
I remember spending a lot of my adolescent life watching talk shows, and recently I got back into it. I still love them. So much. and it's not the gossip, it's not the idea of being on camera (I actually have pretty bad stage fright, but nothing I can't get over) It's not even about the money these people might make. It's the distribution of information. Entertainers have a very unique way of delivering information. They, well, entertain you with it, because not everyone is willing to listen to a 4 hour debate summarized by a 2 hour podcast.
Entertainers, I believe, are possibly some of the most powerful people, mainly because people readily listen to their material. Because the entertainment industry is intended for leisure, people take in the information without a feeling of obligation. It becomes their choice to be aware of the information that's being shared. I want to be a source for that voluntary consumption of information.
Xangans, I want to ask you for advice. Can you provide me with some information on how I can start achieving my dreams? I have done some research myself, but I want to make sure that I'm not missing anything. I would appreciate anything from what equipment I should get for a podcast, to a recently trending topic of awareness that I can promote in said podcast. Thank you for helping me!
Entertainment Industry, Here I Come!
