I have over 1,000 emails in my inbox. Among the things that come my way - Do I want to go to a national taco chain's test kitchen & sample recipes? No, I do not. What if they pay me? Still no. Do I want to do an ad for a national Bloody Mary mix for $50. No. For $300? No. No to the ice cream sandwich company out of LA. And no to the whiskey company that rhymes with Hameson. No, I can't do an ad for your Air BnB and I'm sorry your car got stolen but still, no.
1000 Things is just a passion project. A really f%*ing fun, awesome passion project that has lead me to some amazing, real & genuine friendships, as well as meeting some of the most hard-working, dedicated, creative business owners & artists in this city. But I'm very aware that some... entities just want to use me to get to you. I hold the line very tight, in terms of what I'll bring to you. I always ask, "Is this of value? Does it serve the people who care enough to follow?" 🌸 Tonight, I saw some amazing art go up in the city & now I'm having deep thoughts on a RiNo rooftop about passion projects... & how the drive for commerce can ruin our original intention for them. (And I'm only drinking La Croix!) 🍑 But mostly I'm thinking... where do I get this t-shirt? #1000thingstodoindenver. (PC: @girlboss)
