She Makes Me Wanna - Grind Harder

Joel Barker said, "Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world." I chose My McCarty for this week's, "She Makes Me Wanna," because as I pursue my dreams, I must always remember the action portion. My LIVES that motto.

My best friend Kay* from the blogosphere had mentioned My in one of her posts a while back. Before I started my business, I was starting a business with a partner. We were seeking a graphic designer to design our logo. After making him check out her work from the web, I convinced him she was the designer for us (he thought working with someone across the miles was a bad idea). This partnership was full of problems and we dissolved but it was after we had already paid My to work on our logo. I was so devastated and embarrassed to call her back to cancel the order. I was thinking maybe she could apply some portion of what I had paid toward the partnership logo to my own personal logo and she did with no delay. From that moment on, we established an amazing working relationship. I was working on a movie during this time so my days got off to extremely early starts. No matter when I'd email her she'd respond instantly (she lives in L.A. so that is a 2 hour difference). The fact that My works so hard on all fronts of her business makes me wanna GRIND HARDER in the pursuit of my professional goals! Her work ethic is amazing and she creates beautiful things as a result (everytime I had out one of my business cards, people are wow'ed!). So without further ado, meet the woman that makes this workaholic want to grind harder!
