“Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.” ― Sun Tzu

Signs, signs everywhere are signs!

As I relax into another day of the weekend starting with my beloved coffee (I have to get a coffee sponsorship) any coffee companies have your people contact my people. I always wanted a reason to say that!  I’m serious, as I have a few great products that look to myself for endorsement. ONE DROP HOT SAUCE, look it up, try it, love it. I grill OFTEN and I really like their product. I’m talking with them about promotional product tie-in’s with WILD MICHIGAN. I’m a lover of hot sauces and I prefer flavor over just HOT.

MSU (my alumni school) won their first football game and while out and about I saw “HIRING” signs at a few businesses and SOLD signs on a few houses in the area. These just seem to be little sign that things are moving in the right direction. I went into this weekend feeling GREAT! Many hardships and battles over the last 18 months and some good victories along the way. I feel we have our HOUSE in order at CDI finally. Many goals that we had set have been put within reach now and it is by the hard work of everyone involved but especially my generals.

Next week many things will be put into motion and for that I feel very blessed. I can’t get into it all but several projects have packaged up nicely and other negotiations have gone in our favor. Why should they not I ask? We have always tried to do good things for all the right reasons  and we have encountered a few forces that would like to have seized on what they thought was an easy meal. WRONG! Several things are all coming together that should firmly make CDI a player in the years to come.

“Dean Teaster’s Ghost Town” would be considered GOLD to PLATINUM if it was a single album. October is a good release month with a CDI project AN ORDINARY KILLER and a Jeff Burton film BLOOD TIES both out October 20th on DVD. It sounds like KARMA, CRIME, PASSION, REINCARNATION that released theatrically in June in India is hitting the UK next. SAVAGE that I originally penned has a premiere this month.

And projects for acting are many and so I’m looking to be on-set quite a bit the end of the year here and next year will be a busy one as well. I’m excited to announce some of these when the ink dries. I will say that I should be in Texas and Arizona at years end and this fall we are busting to re-organize and shoot “Wild Michigan” before snow flies. I know many people would love to see that happen and so we work hard on everyones behalf. I’m here to say it will happen it just has been a major struggle because one element outside our organization was dishonest and a liar. Every dog has its day and this dog is hungry.

I hope everyone is getting some good quality time in with family and friends because life is really about that at the end of the day. I love what I do even when the doing is difficult. I’m here to tell you that if you follow your heart with hard work the desired results will start to manifest. They seldom happen as fast as we think our patience can bear or unfold as ultimately planned in our ideal little thoughts. BUT… the universe does have a plan for each and every one of us and so breath deep, try to take nothing personally and be happy for the half full versus the half empty.

Happy weekend!
