How an Unemployed Journalist Rose Into a Filmmaker - Becky Scott
When you’re a writer who can’t type anymore, how do you pull yourself up, change course, rediscover your dream, and make it come true? In this special Listener Success Story, Becky Scott shares how a medical disability left her unemployed and devastated. Yet she found a silver lining and used that freedom to explore her childhood passion of filmmaking. Through her belief and passion, her journey has included writing and directing her very first film Asking For It, landing dream actors, getting the attention of managers, and opening herself up to accept what beauty and magic is still yet to come.

TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:
It starts with believing. And nobody is going to believe for you.
It takes hustle, luck, and sometimes a leap of faith.
Just because you’re not happy with the outcome, it doesn’t mean it’s a waste of time.
Surround yourself with people who support your dream before it’s even done.
A “no” is frustration. A “yes” is terrifying. But you won’t regret any of it.
Ask yourself, “If I’m not going to do this now, will I ever do it?”
You have a right to be here. And you have a right to share your gift.
