3 years ago, I moved to America with not a single job lined up, I was not signed to any agency & had no professional management either.
I did this because 4 years earlier in Australia I was in the exact same position. After finishing school, I was rejected by EVERY modeling agency I went to, being told that I was either too much of something or not enough of something else or that I am not what the 'market' is looking for.
It was at one of those first 10 or 12 meetings that ended in rejection when I decided that I was going to do it anyway & I was going to make it happen WITH people who believed in me & WITH people who wanted to see me succeed. I used that rejection & turned it into motivation.
I am so sick of people telling girls (and the guys) that they are not good enough or that they need to change & then they believe they need to. It's not acceptable there are people out there that feel they can tell others they're not good enough, their dreams & goals are unrealistic or that they need to change.
From a young age, I can remember being told far too often that I wasn’t the right fit for the job, my goals were TOO ambitious, I’m unrealistic about what can be achieved & by when they could be achieved - the list goes on. Fast forward to right now & I sometimes still pinch myself at the work I have been able to create & be apart of. I have worked with some of the coolest & most successful people & companies in this business. I also have the privilege of working with such an amazing team, my team, the A TEAM, (a team that took a VERY long time to find BTW) you guys Rock & are the bomb! 😉
I refuse to let anyone tell me I can't do something, my dreams are too ambitious or I don't meet their BS 'standards'. I made a decision early on in my life that people with small minds will never influence the person I was & the person I was aspiring to be.
The point is, YOU are in control of your life, not the people who doubt you, who tell you no, who say you need to change. YOU are in control. Know your worth girlfriend, then add tax 👌🏼😏
