I have spent the past few days enthralled in my passion… I apologize for my time away, and look forward to posting more of my thoughts this week. Progress is moving along beautifully for our upcoming fashion show. My brother and I submitted an important order today. Harnessing the theme of Earth month, element concepts invite a cunning perspective to our customers, and an awakening to the senses. As I continue to document our progression in fashion… my brother Jason Nava continues to impress his intentions toward a shift in rejuvenating Denver’s culture, and motive of individuality.
Aside from these promising efforts, my passion has ignited into something I cannot control… have you ever stomached a feeling of need or want so bad you could taste it? Well my friends, “I’m in it.” Enticing my curiosity, I never knew what passion was until the invitation was sent… my involvement with JNava has enhanced a new perspective and code of direction. I believe everyone of us possess a unique calling in life, just waiting for the opportunity to be discovered. I finally feel like I’ve found my niche, my purpose in life… integrating a mind of design (Jason), and a zealous business man (Mark), you recognize a brotherly bond worthy of praise.
Operating on a level of passion breathes new life, shared by a band of loyal supporters, the future holds industrious promise. I firmly believe in recognizing those who have encouraged us thus far: The lovely ladies at 3 Elements Marketing (Crystal Vilkaitis-founder, and her spectacular apprentice Emily Kirby). They continue to praise and push our passion to the next level! Emily sent a book titled: Why Now Is the Time to Crush It! - By Gary Vaynerchuk. My eyes have been glued to its insightful pages, offering tools and advice playfully shared by Gary’s unique personality. Daniel Garza with Lab Seven designs has kindly donated his time and services to educating the critiquing process, and final product development. Julian Donaldson (founder) of Geniuz Ink has been a gem... also sharing his brillance in web design and marketing tactics.
Our journey continues, and our passion has been found. Though I’ve participated in numerous devotions, none have left me wanting more. When you focus your energy and time into something that never gets old, you’re in the biz of discovery. I welcome your thoughts, and encourage you to seek your passions in life… it may require leaving your comfort zone, but in the end, worth all the anxiety and fear.
“Passion is the genesis of genius.” ~ Anthony Robbins
All the best,
