Day 020 - The Pivot
A buzzword that I am hearing around the industry now is “Pivot”. These words come along often as they get mentioned across blogs and media sources. Then come the books, podcasts, and TV shows and not necessarily in that order. The ability to know when and how to Pivot is an incredibly important skill. When the COVID pandemic started, businesses and individuals alike had no choice but to pivot and find alternate ways to succeed at business. Years later and the challenge remains for most. It seems it is far easier to pivot as an individual than as a large corporation, however I feel that each has its own equivalent degree of difficulty. I started in the film and television industry as a web / graphic designer and then (Final Wish) associate producer (still waiting on my return on investment over 3yrs later). Not one to easily be defeated, I decided to continue that path and create a few web series which has now become their own digital tv network. My goal is to produce a minimum of 5 shows per year. I also want to formally study film and tv production. I live right near Georgia Highlands College and Chattahoochee Technical College in Dallas, GA so will be looking into their offerings. I don’t think I need another degree but maybe a certificate class will do. You see, I am pivoting. I am refusing to imagine a roadblock in front of me. Mind you all of this is done in my spare time, outside of my day-to-day contracts in Office Administration and Web/ Graphic Design. In my experience, the end justifies the means so onward we march.
