“What’s your story? Where are you from? What makes you want to create?”
As we begin our “Take a Seat” campaign with Nooz Krazy and others, we thought long and hard about the ideals of bringing people together through influencers in the entertainment and creative industries.
With social media enabling many creatives to grow and showcase their talents, competition has rapidly increased amongst many talented folks. Most creatives are insecure, and this causes many emotions to surface, through the spectrum. Often times, we are faced with questions – “Will they like my music?” “How will they react to my acting?” “Why wasn’t I chosen?” “Why aren’t my engagement numbers better?” “I don’t like that style, why… [is unnamed artist getting that kind of hype]?”
Natalie Paul, better known as Makani Nalu, a model, reality TV star and multi-talented creative artist from Warcester, MA., gives a few words on coming together as a creative community and overcoming any differences in such community.
On this topic, Makani Nalu comes with experience. She has overcome these hurdles as a recent cast-member of MTV’s “Stranded.” She has traveled with the wind and has endured many experiences where togetherness was the way out.
If you follow Makani Nalu, she is ONE with nature, with the waves, with the flowers, with a spiritual world, but most important, with other open-minded creatives.
Recently, she met up with Svcred to do a photoshoot as part of their upcoming launch campaign. The vibe was unreal. She was relaxed and open-minded. She was nimble yet very skillful. Svcred noted, “her experience with other creatives is that of a traveler and although she was not completely in brand with our line, she was more than a pleasure to work with because of her collaborative mindset.”
A true collaborative mindset.
Makani Nalu has worked with a ton of creatives as of late. For example, she just got done working with Widny Bazile [pictured herein] as part of Gumbro’s upcoming release, “California Love.” She performed like a natural for Algren and Onproper’s official music video, while Director Rickstarr Ferragamo seamlessly directed the actress through each scene. We asked Rickstarr about his experience working with Makani and he responded, “[Makani] made my job so easy – just wavy…facts.”
She’s doing so much more because of this collaborative mindset.
Before you start to feel competitive, negative, and jealous because you’re looking at what differentiates you from someone else, sit back and think about how much more you can do by avoiding jealousy and resentment Trapstyle bosses, who preaches the collaborative mindset].
Next time you think about the differences between you and other creative, think about how much more success and happiness you can bring to your life when you collaborate.
Now, Take a Seat with us and tell us how you believe we can all come together!
