echo.jpgI had no idea Mark Ecko was so inspiring.

He started his own fashion line in the ’90’s. Quality skater clothes. In the New York Times this week there’s a great feature on his trailblazing efforts to break into the fashion industry.

Not sure who actually wrote this article because the byline says “By Mark Ecko, as told by: Bobbi Demsey”

What does “as told by” mean?

I’m thinking…it means Mark told the story to Bobbi who then wrote the article.

Big difference? Ummm…yeah there’s a difference.

Anyway, according to Bobbi or Mark,

“Whatever you do in life, be passionate about it. At least once a month, if not every day, reassess what you’re doing and make sure you still love it. If you’re passionate about something others around you may see as a dead end, pave your own way. Be a trailblazer.”

Hell yeah! I could kiss whoever actually wrote that line. They read my mind.

Trailblazing is highly recommended, especially when you’re a single mom breaking all of the damn rules anyway. We’re trailblazers by default.

Ms. Single Mama – you should have worked in Silicon Valley (or maybe you do?) You’re articulate, opinionated, confident, and unafraid to go wherever you please. A true trailblazer

Thanks Dad’s House! That’s SO sweet.

Nope…don’t work in silicon valley but am an interactive copywriter by day. So, yes, tech stuff is my life!

Long live trailblazers!!!
