I now have my UAV Pilot license from the FAA.
Because I didn’t stay in my lane. Have you ever been told that—to stay in your lane? Or even pick one?
🚁 One of the best pieces of advice to NOT listen to is “stay in your lane.” If I stayed in my lane I wouldn’t have written six books—especially the two fiction. I wouldn’t have narrated, I wouldn’t have explored coaching, I wouldn’t have a podcast.
🚁 And I wouldn’t be a licensed UAV pilot. I wanted to explore more about my “relaxing hobby” (which honestly is not so relaxing due to regulations and compliance). So I pursued the license and learned a LOT. Now I have added another skill to my “Skill stack*.” And can offer beautiful video, gorgeous photos and survey perspective to clients, legally.
What do you do for a living? What is your hobby? What other “unrelated” skills do you have? You know they make you better, right? Like, literally better.
Here are a few samples of videos I’ve done. You’ll find them very relaxing:
