Everyday I drive by the blood services building. They have a sign outside, beckoning to all
for blood donations.
They need blood.
Being the good guy I am, I decided maybe it was time I tried to save
the world by giving away some of my precious life giving blood.
Besides, I really wanted to know what blood type I was, for whatever self serving reason.
I just wanted to know.
My doctor couldn’t tell me. He did say when I donate blood they would tell me.
So I sauntered in, ready.
Convinced my blood was going to be the rarest of the rare.
The first thing they do is settle me into a side room with the vampire nurse.
This vampire nurse knows all about blood and explains the process to me,
since it’s my first time.
She explains hemoglobins. And tells me she’s going to draw some blood
to test my hemoglobin level.
Hemoglobins are good, apparently. I’m convinced my blood is so rich in them
they’d put me in a rare category of blood donors.
She pulls out a skin pricking blood sucking tool and jabs my fingers.
A large pool of blood comes out, she dabs it, puts it in a machine that reads the hemoglobins.
Turns out I’m average.
I so wanted to be special. Above average.
We all want to be special, don’t we? Even if it means we have rare life giving blood type.
Helping others, being special, saving the world….it’s a thing.
More importantly, I want to be above average to my clients. I want my business to be so too.
Do I achieve this? More often than not, I hope.
It seems to be working out. Our business is good. Life is good.
Mama’s happy, everyone’s happy.
In the spirit if giving blood and saving the world, tomorrow night I am
hosting another information rich presentation on shooting real estate photography.
With Ken Frazer. This guy is good. And he has created an amazing system for creating
high quality and fast images.
Not a member? It’s a meager twenty bucks to access it (Canadian funds, no less), and thousands of other high quality presentations on marketing, success, lighting, posing and more…..
It’s better than blood. Doing my best to save the world.
Yours in photography and success,
