Project Inspire IV ... #EricaFarnsworth

Actress, Writer, and Comedian.

I introduce - Erica Farnsworth
Los Angeles, CA

" Life is hard!  And fun and scary and meaningful and HILARIOUS.

Life ... real life is what inspires me.

Taking the mundane and sometimes unpleasant aspects of day to day humanity and putting a comedic voice to them allows me to connect with the world.

After going through some challenges in my late teens I rediscovered my love of making people laugh and the connection it creates between us all.  Life is short and the more time I am grateful to have here, the less I take everything so seriously.  And if that means making ridiculously silly and stupid videos that sometimes don't even make sense, then that's ok by me.

At the end of the day, my goal is simple: to bring laughter and joy to someone who may be experiencing pain so that in that moment, they can experience some hope to help them continue on their journey. "

Project Inspire III ... #LandonJordan

Atlanta based Session Guitarist and Side Man.

I introduce - Landon Jordan

" I've been exposed to great music my entire life.  Even though no one in my family plays, my Mom and Dad have an eclectic taste in music.  I was always interested in what was going on behind the scenes of these albums (what instruments were being played, who was playing them, etc).  These chameleons who played instruments behind the stars and away from the spotlight would become my heroes.

Fast forward years later and I'm doing just that.  I've been fortunate enough to work with people, such as the producer Major7 (Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Jay-Z, FKi, Ronnie Garrett (local legend), Tres Gilbert, and many more).  Working with local artists has been a big part of the past coupe years as well.  

There is something special about writing music with people from your hometown and creating something organic.  Being on the road not knowing what lies ahead and being in a studio helping artists' vision come to life - those are my passions.  I never take a second of it for granted.  I'm thankful every day to look down at my collection of hundreds of hotel keys and boarding passes knowing that it was my guitar that took me there.

2017 is gearing up to be an incredible year and I can't wait to see what it has in store. "

Project Inspire ... #ATLStreetsEdition

Before you watch this clip I wanted tell you a little bit about it ...

I wanted to find out what people are inspired by - what are every-day people in the city working towards - what motivates them - what pushes them further - who are they aspiring to become ... 

This project removed me from my comfort zone - randomly approaching so many different demographics.  It taught me how to better reach and interact with others on-the-go.  How do you get someone's attention during the busiest hours in a major city?  People walking/running in droves through the Atlanta streets - to lunch - from lunch - to meetings - to the gym - and back to the office.  I had to get people to stop and once that happened, I could talk about my idea and what I'm trying to do.  I had several great conversations that were off-the-record with those interviewed and with many of those who provided their take on the subject, but did not want to be filmed.

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO TOOK PART IN THE PROJECT
I TRULY APPRECIATE YOUR PARTICIPATION

Please share this video and pass along my message.

Do yourself a favor ... step outside of your comfort zone.
