John Paul DeJoria At Kentucky Derby

Prepare yourself to capture moments like this at the Kentucky Derby.

I captured this photograph of John Paul DeJoria and his wife, Eloise Broady DeJoria at the Derby in 2011.

There's no better place to people watch, than the infield of Churchill Downs.


John Paul DeJoria quotes continue to inspire me.

  • "The biggest hurdle is rejection.  Any business you start, be ready for it."
  • "Be prepared for rejection.  No matter how bad it is, don't let it overcome or influence you."

If he can do it, so can I

Building a business is no easy task.  The first step is believing in yourself and the vision for your life.  For me, I continue working hard to make my dreams a reality.  Rejection happens, but I keep moving forward.  When looking at it from God's perspective, I'm confident He has something greater in store.


I invite you along on this journey of The 100 Day Project.

There will be times of triumph and times of struggle, but I'll show up through it all.  I look forward to hearing your thoughts along the way.  Please comment below!
