Welcome to 2016!

Per tradition with nobody but myself, I once again dove into Lake Michigan on January 1st to ring in the New Year. Only this time, TMJ4 had me put on a GoPro camera and film some footage for them. Enjoy that below:

Watch Bradley James Kroll on TMJ4!

With 2016 comes a whole new batch of work, both in the graphic and video production world, so be on the look out for some new clients of mine and their fine marketing materials! Much love, cheers to 2016! Let’s do some damage!

Tuesday Positivity

I would say that this is probably the prime time this week to post something nonbusiness related and completely from the heart.

I’m having an awful week both socially and mentally, which is taxing as a small business owner because I then take everything personally. In two days, I’ve had rugs pulled out from under me, harsh feedback I wasn’t prepared to hear and devastating losses outside of my professional life. It’s been a rough week. Honestly, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel like giving up throughout this very moment.

But I thought of the alternative. I considered the facts. I never play by the rules. I never follow the beaten path. For three years now, I’ve taken every single moment of “you can’t” and saturated it with a “just watch me” response. What would my life be like had I not pursued this manically positive attitude I always seem to possess?

I can’t quit. I can’t give up. If I give up, then why did I ever start to begin with? Why did I ever bother trying? When I step back from myself and take a look at the bigger picture, I realize that it’s up to me to succeed. Not for the sake of other’s perception of me, but for me.

Don’t give up. If you’re having a tough week, please, don’t give up. Keep pushing. It’ll be the hardest thing you’ll have to do, but don’t quit.
