ArcLight Stories gives guests a behind the scenes experience while telling the story behind the story. At Mid-Century Media, our goal is to grasp the full essence of our clients and to produce content that not only conveys their message but creates a sense euphoria through the art of storytelling. As a full service production company, Mid-Century Media has also worked on various projects with Frito Lay, Tribeca Shortlist and CNN.

Edric and I have been working on our website this week. It's made me think a lot about this little company and why I left CNN last year. The thing I keep coming back to is fear. I spent years either avoiding or denying the role fear was playing in my professional life. It's true it took all kinds of life-changing circumstances for me to seriously consider leaving a good job to start my own business, but, now that I have, and I can see what's possible when you confront your fear, I'm so glad I did. By no means am I fearless (I'm not sure I would want to be) but, I'm definitely paying way more attention to what motivates me.

I think this sums it up nicely...

"There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life." ~ John Lennon
