“It’s all about who you know….” How many times have you heard that phrase?
Well, it’s true!
In so many instances it really is about who you know…. some of the best breaks, opportunities, deals.. etc.. come from people you know or are connected to in some way.
This year I won 1st place for Best Visual Artist and Best Blog because of who I know… yep .. that’s right .. because of who I know!
But, it’s not exactly what you think…. Let me explain.
The people I know come from all walks of life.. most everyday folks just like me. All of us doing our best to make our way in this world.
They may or may not be the most politically influential, they may or may not be the highest in command at what they do, they may or may not be the wealthiest (as far as monetary value goes), they may or may not have much power in this world … but they are by far the most caring, dedicated, hard working, dependable, friendliest and kind hearted people that I know!
It is because of these people, standing by me throughout the voting process that I was able to win 1st place.
The thing is …. the award and acknowledgement is great .. but what’s even greater is that I have enough of these people on my side… who cared enough about me to cast their votes daily for an entire month.. who despite my constant and annoying voting reminders .. still stood by me and together we ruled the Toast of Music City 2011!!
It is indeed “who you know” and in this case I am proud and honored to know so many wonderful, caring folks!
Who you know doesn’t always mean you have to know the wealthiest, most powerful people… you just have to know the ones who truly care about others.
Thank you to everyone who voted for me this year… and most of all thank you all for your friendship, support and for being who you are!
I’m so glad I know the best of the best! The Cream of the Crop! Love You All!
