Do You Want to Play a Game?

Did you ever play a game of Monopoly that seemed to go on forever? Remember those days? I do. I remember Monopoly games that went on for days and days. Us kids would play as long as we could stay awake and then some. It was just so fun! Maybe Monopoly was not your game. Maybe your game was Scrabble, Risk or Life or almost any card game. Playing games is important of growing up. They teach us life skills, strategy and competition in a safe environment. 

Running a business is pretty much like playing a game. There’s strategy, skills and competition. The business game, just like Monopoly, goes on and on. It’s really fun and sometimes it’s a real challenge. It’s exciting. I can’t wait each day to get up and play the Home Video Studio game. Plus I get paid to play! 

The Home Video Studio game starts again this coming Saturday and you are invited to play. 

On Saturday, October 20thI will be holding a seminar on how to play the HVS game: getting started, equipment you will need, how and where you can play, and of course… the rules of the game (by the way… also the name of an awesome 1939 French film directed by Jean Renoir – check it out).

Join us for our Show ‘N Tell Saturday seminar on Saturday, October 20, 2018. The game will be played in our flagship studio in Indianapolis, Indiana. Veteran Home Video Studio Owners – game players - Tony and Lori Melendez will be attending. They’re part of our new studio development team. 

You can bring your team member too. Bring your spouse, partner, friend, advisor, son, daughter, etc. Don’t miss this game. 

Game play for this Saturday will include:

The Home Video Studio game board – the HVS Experience
Working from home or a retail storefront – Play the game from anywhere!
Training and support – strategy and skills 
Equipment packages – choose your game pieces
Marketing & advertising – essential rules of the game
Getting started and ramp up times – How much it costs to play
Playing the game & making money – How much you can make!

Oh and a bonus for you… come and play with us on Saturday. If you want to keep playing after Saturday, we take care of your travel costs to Show ‘N Tell Saturday! Book your hotel and flights today. Call for details. 

Call 1-317-358-5932 or 1-866-714-1956 now to set up your reservation and start playing the game. Or you can simply reply to this email. Space for this game is limited so call now.

Remember you are never too old to start playing the game. The important thing is to get in the game! 

Oh… and one more thing… once you start playing the game, you won’t want to stop - ever!  I am playing it right now. So fun! 

May the Force be with You!

What happens when passion meets purpose?


What am I excited about (what am I looking forward to)?

What am I grateful for?

What is my purpose?

I like to live in the “now” but I find that looking forward to a task or event helps me focus on what needs to be done today and during the week. I always want something to look forward to. I need that. 

Showing gratitude (even when no one is looking) is not only important but it helps me focus on my purpose. I try to express gratitude to the people who are important to me (my mentors, friends, associates and family).  These are the people who help me with my purpose – the really important people in my life. I always want to make sure they know how much I appreciate them. 

And that leaves purpose. A great and worthy purpose is not easy to find (although sometimes purpose finds you!). I hope you have one (or two) in your life. So every day I consider the following:  what is my purpose, what am I doing to achieve that purpose and why is my purpose important to me? 

Why is the most important question because your “why” should lead you to your passion and your purpose. For nearly twenty years my passion has been to help others into a new career in video. For the nearly twenty years before that my passion was (and remains) video, film, story telling and media creation in general. 

I have been lucky in that I have been able to merge both of my passions into a life I love and one that I feel is worthy. I thank God and the Universe daily for this. I am grateful. 

If you are lucky enough to find a life purpose that is also your passion make sure to express your gratitude. You are one lucky individual! 

May the Force Be With You
