The crazy story behind how I ended up doing construction and made an amazing contact

Yes you read that right. What was I doing? Read more below.

A few weeks ago I had an idea to make an idea on memory design which I learned about from my former (brilliant) boss and expert in human behaviour Denise Hampson, in Las Vegas as a way to learn more about businesses in Las Vegas and meet more people.

To get people to meet with me, I had to make so many calls and write so many emails. I got so many no's, and even a few yes's that on second look I had to change my mind on, but I was persistent, and in the end.

I got one really cool yes.

I'll tell you what happened next,

I woke up Friday morning and followed my morning routine. Run, work, change, go to the office, work some more, but today was different. I was nervous. Would everything go alright? Would I forget something? I was caught between not wanting to overthink to the point of paralyzation and knowing I needed to keep thinking to make sure I didn’t forget anything. I left the office at 11 to go home early because I had filming for an exciting video interviewing the Founder of Dig This, which is one of Time Out’s Top Experiences in Las Vegas.

My friend from church Noelle offered to join me as a filming assistant for my first on site filming, and my cousin Vincent loaned me his camera. This was one of the coolest things I’ve done in this challenge, and I couldn't have done it without Noelle and Vincent. I'm so thankful for them.

We were there to interview the owner of Dig This, Ed Mumm. Ed was not only one of the nicest people I've ever met, but his attention to detail and his love of making a great experience for people showed me why he was so successful.

What's more than that, Ed is incredibly generous. Before the interview, he let us take a spin on the machines so we could experience Dig This. I felt like a kid again, Dig This was a playground for adults where you get to drive construction vehicles with friends. It was so freaking cool! I'll put photos below.

They even have a place where you can write what's making you mad and crash a car into it.

Afterwards, we went to Ed’s office where I realised I forgot to bring the adapter for my light. I also realised I need better lights in general, I didn’t panic, that’s not really me, but I felt a brief sense of disappointment in myself. How could I be so stupid? The adapter was right there.

I was tempted to stay longer and write "forgot my light" and crash a car.

Realistically I know these things happen, and I was able to separate the criticism of myself and get on with the interview. A different version of me would have panicked, and thinking back to Friday makes me feel proud of the person I’ve become. Next time I know I need to make a checklist of everything I need, and that I need to buy better lighting. 

But if there’s one thing I’m sure of, there will be a next time. I want to find two other businesses to interview for the video. I will not fail because I will not quit. 

Whatever you’re going for, I believe in you. We’re in this together, I won't quit on you.
