Stay inspired!


When I was a kid, we always watched movies. Always. I love them. I’m still addicted to them. If you rolled over to my Mom’s there was (still is) a solid 96.459% chance a Disney movie was on. In her eyes they were the best. We all loved them. (too many short sentences Braun, get to the point) Recently I had the chance to go see UP in 3d. Great movie, but more importantly (to me) is what came on before the movie started. The opening title with the Disney castle. Few things throw me back to childhood like that little melody. I sat there excited in bewilderment.

THE POINT IS….being a professional creative in this UBER connected world is hard and dangerous. Meaning, you can “numb out” to being inspired really quick. Don’t misunderstand me, I love this time we live in….has there ever been a more exciting period? Always search for new inspirations. Look for what gives you butterflies like when the world first hit you as such a magical place. Before you figured out what CNN was talking about. Inspire yourself. Try these

    Awesome…. keep going forward. Enthusiasm will never stop being popular. Innocence is still refreshing. Walt disney is still proof that those values don't get out date.
