Have you ever gone through life thinking about giving up because you don't think you can achieve your childhood dreams? Life will have many obstacles and we'll have to make some sacrafices in order to maintain the balance of "what makes us happy." The struggles we face each day should be enough motivation for us to achieve our goals.
Uprar would like to share an inspiring story of Kevin Boston. Kevin is 29 years old, born and raised in East Boston, Massachusetts. You can say, "he started from the bottom and now he's here." He finished high school but decided not to attend college after. His passion for the creative arts kept him focused on achieving his dreams. So instead, he made the decision to move to Los Angeles. His success didn't come without a fight. He was able to take his creativity and merge it with the business side of the industry. His ultimate inspiration is everything that was around him such as friends, family, places, and events that happens -- life challenges and life experiences!
Growing up... Kevin was always inspired by art, it kept him away from trouble, it was his escape when he was having problems at school and at home.
One favorite quote he lives by is "Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen." -Conan O'Brian
Kevin has MANY influences that inspire him to not only be great at his craft but as a overall individual. Sure, there are guys like Steven Spielberg, Woody Allen, Quentin Tarantino that inspire him in the film world but surprisingly Kevin gives his hat to Tom Brady (New England Patriot's NFL quarterback). He admires Tom's leadership and the way he conducts himself in front of the media. Kevin describes him as a class act, master at his craft; which is respected by his teammates and fans. Besides all that he has a beautiful successful wife and is a great father figure. Brady is a great example of having it all!
Kevin said, "Balance is definitely key, I believe that whatever you do in one area of your life you do in all areas of your life, for example, if your room is a mess, some where in your life is a mess, its not about being perfect but having a purpose with everything you do." Kevin has recently been on a self-discovery journey and this has really supported him in his career & life.
Kevin recalls a funny story that shows his drive to never quit. A few years ago he broke his leg and was confined to a wheel chair. He was given a opportunity to work with a big client; Twitter for an ad campaign for an upcoming CES event; they were shocked that he was working while limited to his wheel chair. He chuckled and said, "A wheelchair will not stop me from a big opportunity!" Sure enough, over the years, his career took off and he had the opportunity to work with many great celebrities and companies such as, ESPN, Snoop Dogg, Budlight, Wiz Khalifa, Eric Roberts, Perez Hilton, Sony, Atlantic Records just to name a few. You can see all of his work at his newly relaunched website www.kevinboston.com
