This episode was originally a personal article I wrote about dealing with self doubt, failure and also how all of us have those people around us who push negativity onto us and make us question ourselves. I wrote it for a few people very close to me who have experienced a lot of this that I’ve seen first hand out influential figures in their lives have made them want to give up on their hopes and dreams and go after something more ‘realistic’. We should all be careful about what we say to others and how our words can have impact on those around us, and we mightn’t even be aware most of the time that we’re doing this – but we’re all in a position to help bring people up rather than pull them down.

    Hi Allan, thank you for this inspiring podcast, I learned a lot from “hearing” your experience. As an artist who is transitioning into a FX TD for a little over a year, I am grateful to learn how you grow and strive into where you are. I am looking forward to hear the rest of your podcast, AND I can’t wait to better my skills to reach my goal too =)

    Hope to work with you one day when I’m ready! =D
