Everybody has a dream.
Whether it's to raise a child that makes a positive contribution to society, to start a business based on your passion, to work with or start a charity that helps those less fortunate, to reach a certain position at your company, to get an education, to get in shape, write a book, direct a movie, or be an actor.
One of the questions I always talk about with my friend Tawana is how long do you chase a dream? Until things aren't going your way? Until the money runs out? When you experience disappointment after disappointment? When you get rejected? When you give your all and it still isn't enough? Do you keep going? Do you change course? Do you give up?
My hubby owns a recording studio and record label and he's been working with a young woman with a dream. A dream to share her musical talents with the world. But she hasn't just been dreaming. She's been working her butt off.
Let me just say that anyone who thinks the entertainment industry is easy isn't in the entertainment industry! I've watched her experience some serious disappointments and setbacks, but she continues to move forward, more determined than ever.
And now, her dreams are starting to come true. Jamie Jones will release her first album, Celebrity Music, on June 30th (YEA!). Her sound is a mixture of who she is and the music she loves - pop/rock/hip hop and R&B.
To celebrate, she's having a CD release party on Sunday, June 28th at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. If you're in the area, come celebrate with us!

So, to answer the question:
How long do you chase a dream?
Until it comes true!
