A constant theme Rhonda and I have been imparting to anyone with an inkling of entrepreneurial spirit is "Don't Wait! Create! Whether you're an actor looking to get into films; a hairdresser who desires her own salon; or a business woman wanting to start a non-profit foundation; there is no time like the present to make it happen. In doing so, you may come across naysayers. Yet, I say, "keep on pressing on"! Find a support of a few (even if just one), start small, and think big! Our family and friends have been supportive of our efforts, and it has pushed us forward every step of the way.
In a sense, we have created our web show based on the opportunities that have presented themselves through travel, writing, and filmmaking. As we go through the process of editing our Take A Leap premiere episode, we are also reminded that we have an upcoming trip to China, and will have to do this all over again. What fun!! We've got to keep this momentum going!! So we've come up with a tentative itinerary of other travel opportunities where we can film new segments of Take A Leap, along with a Wish List.
Let us know what you think, and if you have interview subjects in any of these locations, please reply via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also share with us other suggestions of destinations where American Blacks have ventured.
