EPISODE 9 - MAY 15, 2018

This episode I get to speak with Elton Anderson Jr about his journey from Corporate America to becoming a successful creative/commercial photographer. His career is a series of twists and turns that continue to evolve and inspire others to live in a place of gratitude.  Elton's mantra is a quote I  love, "Jump and develop your wings as you fall".
