Ep 152: When he left his 9-to-5, Emmy nominations came rolling in
"Imagine the possibilities,"
That's the statement that flashes across my brain in the morning, while I'm driving home, heck sometimes at 1 o'clock in the morning! Which is rare. I value my rest.
But that statement carries with it curiosity, a drive, and a desire to make a leap to see and taste everything that's in store on the other side. But that statement alone isn't enough. The statement plus the action we take to make it real, no matter what...that's what get's us there.
In this episode, you'll learn...
How he attracts millions of views on Social Media and the power you possess to do the same and amplify your voice and creativity
How hustle and persistence can land where you want to be even without skills and experience
What it looks like when creativity and courage merge together
My guest on the show today, David Alan Arnold, a cameraman for Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch, knows what it's like to turn possibilities into realities. Literally, build a career and life for himself from scratch. And I'll tell you there's a little dumpster diving that helped him get where he is today.
David’s Airborne Cinematography now flies him around the world for everything from James Bond to Deadliest Catch. He has flown over a thousand missions, to capture breath-taking, airborne images and Emmy Awards for hit shows like The Amazing Race, The World Series, and Survivor. Some of David’s proudest moments have been on the ground, volunteering to help his community. David’s fight against organized crime inspired him to write his unique series of True Adventure Books, “Help From Above”.
In our conversation we go from getting into an industry with zero experience, garnering Emmy nominations, to the need to stand up for what you believe in.
