Being limited edition applies to so much more than material things.

This weekend I attended an event hosted by Behind the Hustle at the Nike Montalban in Los Angeles. If you don’t know,

Behind The Hustle™ is a career development project designed by Creative Contraband to help young adults find work in unique industries. Our goal is to bring influencers and executives in these fields to young adults beginning their careers in order to teach, inspire, and hire.

They are basically encouraging and guiding young individuals on how to create their own paths to fulfill their dreams and make a living off of it too!  There is nothing more limited than creating your own life experiences (including wins AND failures) to help you attain your goals. I must admit I currently have chosen the path frequently traveled, but  I honestly haven’t felt this inspired in a long time and I probably just needed something like this to kick me in the ass.

Speaking of young individuals doing what they love and making it, I also had the privilege of attending photographer Ja Tecson‘s first show that same night at Kicks Sole Provider in Brentwood.  Some of my shoddy photos of his photos:
