So I am super excited and a tad nervous to share this new series of videos with you! Because it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while now, and at the same time it’s so near and dear to my heart and means so much to me it’s nerve-racking to put out in the world.
But here goes everything.
Almost 2 years ago I shared that my husband Eric had lost his job, and we made the decision to both work for ourselves.
In that time we have both grown and struggled a lot. But I’d say the biggest triumph for us is that we have both discovered what we believe are our unique gifts, and now we are making a living (though it is currently a humble one) from our passions.
I basically think the point of life is to find your gift, what makes you YOU, and for you to share the hell out of it. And that’s what I’m trying to do! Share my gift! But sometimes I can’t figure out how! For example, I wanted to do these videos, but I needed some parameters! I needed some funding! I needed some encouragement. (Don’t we all?)
Enter Western Digital. They are partnering with influencers and looking to share their stories. You might not think you know WD, but it’s like, hard drives? Yeah. Kind of a big deal. Haha. I told them about my idea for a series for The Alison Show called, “How I Share It” and they loved it! And then enabled us to film these and bring these first three episodes to you.
It’s is sincerely a dream project. But it’s not always all about me, ok?
After you watch these videos WE WANT TO HEAR ABOUT YOU! And your gift! And how you are trying to share it, or figure it out!
So hop below the videos to see how to enter!
In the first video Eric and I share how we decided to go all in, and what that means for us, and our family. We talk about how we split up our work time, and taking care of the kids, how we live off the land (not really), and what we do most of the time as a family (spoiler, eat popsicles on the porch).
Next I share what I believe my gift is, a little more about The Alison Show, and how I’m sharing my gift and trying to hustle it! You can also see some behind-the-scenes action of Eric making one of my IG dance videos, and I talk more about why I’m do all the random things I do!
Then you get a glimpse at my SUPER hip hubby’s studio, his work as a music producer, and how he works with artists to share his gift. He brings our “cool factor” up a lot, I know, I know.
WD and I want to know how YOU SHARE YOUR GIFT, so we are also holding a giveaway for this amazing My Cloud Mirror: which is wireless cloud storage, and it’s AWESOME, on my Facebook page! So be sure to enter and tell me all about YOU! I love this giveaway because this exact product has helped me share my gift.
My Cloud Mirror is this cute, sleek wireless hard drive (a little box that sits under my desk and I never see it) has changed how I do a lot of things! It makes editing my videos and saving large files so SO much easier, I’ve backed up my photos and I don’t live in fear that I’ll lose my computer and lose my life. Plus it’s wireless so Eric and I can both use it, save to it, and access files from our phone or anywhere. It’s THE BOMB.
But back to me ok?
I share these not because Eric and I think we have it all figured out, but because we are so passionate and excited about what we’re doing, that we hope if you’re thinking about taking the plunge to share your gift, that you’ll feel comforted in knowing others are too!
And maybe you aren’t quite sure what you want to share yet. Wait, been there, for like the past 7 years of my life. Haha. So maybe this will be helpful on that end as well.
I hope you enjoy learning a little more about what we’re doing over here! And I can’t wait to hear about you over on Facebook!
Thank you so much for your love, support, feedback, and for being a part of me dream.
