For today's Monday Motivation, meet Drew Jones.
Q.What do you do or want to do for a living
I am a casting producer in unscripted television and I want to be an executive producer for a leading late night talk show.
Q.What challenges have you endured in the past or present to achieve your goals?
I’m over a 1000 miles away from a family who doesn’t really understand why I would possibly want to work in this industry. I’ve missed birthdays, weddings, funerals, and holidays to get to where I am. I’ve really had to learn to be my biggest fan.
Q.What do you do to "center in" ( refocus on achieving your goals)?
When I need to center in, I listen to what my body is telling me to do. For me, I have to be in a healthy state of mind and body in order to do what I do, so if I need to take the day off or meditate or get my nails done, I do it. You can’t go the distance if your transportation isn’t being taken care of.
Q.What is your why?
I guess I drive me. I’ve had a lot of people tell me no or doubt my plans for myself but I’ve always seen the bigger picture so clearly. I know that if I want that success me and only me can get me there. I inspire myself
