I've made it a point to avoid negative people for the most part this year. I mean, if I want negativity I just need to read the news every morning and absorb the incredible amount of bullshit the politicians and mainstream media are trying to force down the throats of the masses. Between politics and religion, I don't know which one takes the cake for being more dishonest and manipulative.
Around April of this year, I set out on a new journey to re-invent myself and in the process I freed myself from old beliefs and whatnot that truly made the most incredible difference in my life. I discarded people who were no good and were a drain on me and I welcomed new people into my life that think alike, encourage and support me. It may have been a rough year financially for a lot of people but for me, it's been a year of abundance in all areas. I have refused to participate in the recession that is consuming the rest of the world and I have enjoyed teaching others how to do the same.
For the past 2+ years I've been working diligently on my Internet television portals and through thick and thin, an attempted theft of my concept, scrounging for development resources, the portal is finally where it needs to be to move into the new year and embrace the world with our amazing technology! Can I tell you how excited I am about this? Words can't describe it!
So what exactly is Internet television? Well, in my case it is television quality program that is broadcast via the Internet, mobile devices AND through regular television! It is a platform that allows people who would never have the chance to share their unique programming with anyone except a YouTube audience. eChannelz put unknowns in front of over 100 million television viewers globally and five times that amount via Internet and mobile devices. How incredible is that?
The opportunity for creativity is so endless not to mention that the opportunity for opportunity is endless as well! Just flip through the cable channels at night and peruse the number of totally ridiculous reality shows. There is everything from cake baking to pawn shop sales and EVERYTHING in between! It seems like you can come up with a reality show idea and BANG! You're on TV. It may seem that way but it really is a bit more complicated than that. And honestly, it seems like every week the shows get trashier and trashier. For instance: Jerseylicious. This is a reality show about a bunch of incredibly sleezy New Jersey women/girls who make total asses out of themselves, wear WAY too much makeup, spend WAY too much time in the tanning booth and act like total pigs. Not a show I want my 17-year old daughter watching that's for sure, but she is the exact demographic they target. Nice eh?
Although I am no longer a member of the Christian faith I still believe in family values and offering programming that isn't going to encourage my teens to go out and make an ass out of themselves or embarrass me. I think we can present programming that families are looking for that are not as trashy. Sure there will be programming for a mature audience (no porn of course) but the key to eChannelz is that people can pick and choose what they want to watch. It's kind of like programing a la' carte. Find a cable company that will offer you that! ha!
The great thing about creating this portal is that I was able to really let my creativity lead the way. I have channels for just about everything and everyone. At the moment, we are not offering faith based programming because in the process of setting up that channel none of the people involved could agree on whose beliefs were right and which version of Christianity should be presented, SO, we'll have a "Spiritual" channel and invite people of all beliefs to participate from Catholics to Muslims.. everyone is welcome to share their message on our portal so long as it complies with the broadcaster guidelines.
SO back to my point... I wanted to just share a little of my vision with you. The world is lacking jobs, funds, loans, mortgages, customers, sales, etc. But what it will never lack is the creativity in your own mind to leave those negatives behind. Do you have ANY IDEA how much power you have within your own self to create and accomplish your dreams? If I could get the masses to listen to and believe ONE THING, it would be that they don't need to listen to the garbage that they are told day after day and that everything they need to live their dreams is within them! I'm not just talking the talk either! I am LIVING it!
Do you have a really unique idea for a television show? How about an idea for an eSeries or a documentary? Email me and let's talk about it! You might be the next E-cademy award winner! And if you need help overcoming the funk your in because of the circumstances you're surrounded by, I'm here to help you through that too... get in touch and let's live our dreams and reach our goals together! THEN...we can help others do the same! Are you with me?
Until we meet again...Simply BELIEVE!!
