My friend Xaque, a writer, is the best example of a Yes, and…Attitude and what it does for your life and your career.
Xaque is a person that I am proud to introduce to anyone. Everyone who meets him remembers him and raves about what a great guy he is. How’s that for making an great impression?
This is all because of his Yes, and…Attitude. When you talk with him you feel a natural rapport and friendliness that comes from his Yes, and…Attitude. His positive attitude makes him magnet to famous industry people. He meets more influential people in Hollywood than anyone else I know. Did you see the picture? He’s the one on the right, in a tux, on the red carpet with the cast of Modern Family!
Ten years ago, Xaque came to Hollywood from Boston to be a television writer. He approached his dream just like his life – with a Yes, and…Attitude. Because of his Yes, and…Attitude, he was in a restaurant and someone thought he had beautiful hands. Now he is a hand model and you can see his hands in the dog food aisle of Target. He’s not an actor but he had a role on Gordon Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen. He never intended to produce but he was one of the Producers of the Michael Jackson Memorial.
And his writing career is doing well too. He’s written for E! Live, writing Ryan Seacrest’s questions on the Red Carpet at the Oscars. His screenplay won an award at Slamdance. The World Music Awards flew him to Monaco to write the show and last month he sent me two articles published in the Huffington Post. And that’s just a few of his credits.
So where has your Yes, and…Attitude gotten you today? Share below.
