Had a great “meet and greet” session with Craig Meyer. He has his own business called “Almost John.” To view his website, go to http://www.craigameyer.com. Also, view the link if interested in booking, “Almost John.” It is below:
I was glad to finally meet him. Had to cancel the first meeting due to the windstorm pulled the electrical cords down in my subdivision during spring break.
Felt that I came to the studio with some negativity. Was late for the meeting (didn’t follow directions exactly), pronounced a name incorrectly that was a good friend of his, and I didn’t want to sing for him at first. It felt like an audition and I didn’t want to disappoint. I sound like a “true diva.” Diva truly is not a nice word actually. I had a huge jug of water that I would sip on (sling actually) when my throat was dry. Probably looked like a drunk. He may not want me back in his studio…
However, I left his studio with some positivity, a goal, and sang for him (glad I did and I sang fantastically). He gave me some things to ponder and I’ll chew them in my mind until I come up with answers that need answering.
I sound so vague. The truth is, I don’t want to mention the details of our discussion, but I will mention this:
1. We all make choices in life and that affects our destiny when reaching a goal.
2. Goals change. That’s life. Find a new goal.
3. What is your personal mission.
He is SUCH a POSITIVE person! I left feeling better about my choices and goals. With these to ponder and review for each of us, I will say that I made choices that were right for me. Each performer’s path is different. We land differently in life. Circumstances will happen but attitude (sound cliché) determines the rest of it.
One thing that I would like to mention is this: People work so hard in life (it’s better to work smart actually), and life can be draining and destructive when joy is taken from you. Protect your spirit. God has helped me choose this one fact. I can’t explain it, since subconsciously, I was saving myself from misery many a time.
Performers create something “out of nothing” into a thing of beauty. We are special people. We are blessed and bless others. If the world says otherwise, protect your spirit. Relocate and socialize with positive people.
