Thoughts on life..

It’s been a while since I express myself here on my blog… After all this blog is about me, Francisco H. Perez, or Simply Frank…

At first when I started my website, I knew that blogging was the only way I could achieve what I wanted to achieve… A great online presence, a way for my business to grow exponentially, and be able to us the blog as a tool for me to learn more about myself. More than anything, I knew that I had a big limitation, and that was anything related to the English Language: Reading, Speaking, Writing, Talking, Networking, etc…

With time I’m realizing that those limitations are not really external limitations, but internal limitations.

More than anything, me not believing 100% in myself.

As I found out with time, I was able to achieve my goals. I am now ranked so high in Google, Yahoo, and MSN that I really do not need to spend any money on adverting… How great is that?

Now, there was the time when I remember thinking “oh man, this is never going to pay off,” or “why do I even bother, this is impossible,” and even… “I am doing it all wrong!”

I wanted to pull out all my hair, curse at the computer, and had all these negative emotions that would cause me to feel like giving up, throwing all that hard work away and doing something else, like computer programming or something along the lines of what I was built to do…

Then I thought about it… I do not want to sit behind a computer all my life write meaningless code, it’s easy for me, it comes pretty natural.. but at the same time,  it bores me easily.. and it’s just not what I want to do for the rest of my life… I want my life to have meaning, to help people, to be always learning, to put smiles on people’s faces, to be with people on their happiest days of their lives… A wedding DJ was definitely what I wanted to do…

So I decided I had to make it work, there was NO STOPPING ME! Nothing, absolutely nothing, was going to stop me…

So here I am, a little over 3 years since I first started blogging, having another one of those life changing moments.

See 3 years ago, blogging was only a thing that nerds did, which I guess I am proud to say I am. Blogs were seen as something too new to try… now everyone has a blog and more and more people are using them to build a business… so it’s harder to become a successful blogger (depending on how you define success). Some people even saw, and even today still see blogs as unprofessional, unethical, or even un-businesslike.

So why am I inspired to write today?

Today I started listening to Ron White’s “How to Develop the Mind of Einstein.”

It is very inspirational and motivational… It truly has made me want to be great at what I do… to do what’s in my heart’s desire… pretty much the same feeling I felt 3 years ago when I was struggling with getting the business up and running.

I guess the only difference being that now I have an established presence, both on the web and throughout Houston.

So today I vow and will start to strive to 150% to understanding my clients needs, giving them greatness, and making each and every one of them say…”WOW….” I want to be the absolute best and greatest wedding DJ in the Houston area. It may sound corny, it may sound impossible, and it may sound like it’s not worth the effort… but I feel so motivated by those CD’s, I think… why not… why just do good things when you can strive to do great things for your guests and clients… and I will…

Today is the first day of greatness!!!

Happy Planning!

Brady’s Landing Pictures Wedding DJ Venue Review

I had the pleasure of returning to Brady’s Landing on Sunday June 28th 2009 for the wedding reception of Nelda and Marvin Itzep.

Nelda and Marvin are very down to earth and simple people. Both of them had the biggest smiles any person can have and they just looked absolutely happy together. Every time they were together you could see and feel the love they had for each other, it was truly a pleasure to be able to be of service to them.

All the wedding professional present there were able to see that love, capture it and help me provide Nelda and Marvin with an amazing night that they can remember for the rest of their happy lives together.

One of those professionals was Photographer Julie Wilhite, from Julie Wilhite Photography who was very professional about everything and stayed in contact with me the whole time.  She made sure I knew if they were going out of the room to, sitting down to eat, or anything that might involve them missing the formalities of the wedding. Again, very professional and their pictures are just some of the most amazing photos that I have ever seen; Very vivid and colorful.

The staff at Brady’s Landing is always so accommodating, make the DJ feel welcomed and are very helpful when pointing out where to go what time to set up and even offered me some water early in the wedding reception. The room captain came up to me and presented himself and offered to be of assistance. That is always nice and not all room captains have that initiative. Most of the time I have to go looking for him and asking different people who is the person in charge of the room.

As a wedding professional, I truly recommend both Brady’s Landing and Julie Wilhite Photography.

Happy Planning!
