Mission48 Prep – 3 Weeks Out Recap

This week was insane.

I’ve been trying to find a videographer for the last three months to go with us and come to find out… it’s way harder than I thought. I’d find someone that might be able to do it, then last minute something came up.

On Tuesday I have a friend locally that was trying to help me find a videographer. He posted on his story and his friend replied back immediately.

“Kels, I think I have the perfect person for you.”

He connected us that same day and we hopped on a call.

She. Is. AMAZING. Her name is Stephanie and she owned an entire media content agency and also said she could go for the entire 48 days… with the budget that I had set (which is very rare because many people wanted 2-3x it). AND she said she could edit/turn over content. BINGOOOOOO!

I told her about the origin story of Mission48 and it was 100% a God thing that she came here right here right now.

That same day I was driving dropping off flyers to gyms and local businesses then found out where one of the news stations broadcast out of. I turned around my car immediately after I saw it and went to walk right in (no clue where I was headed). A woman stopped me saying she already closed the door, but could drop off my flyers to those that may be able to cover the story. SCORE!

AND that same day we had double the amount of sponsorships we had come in… in one day.

I don’t know what was up with Tuesday, August 8th, but I sure know I’ll never forget it!!

But on the flip side of it, Wednesday I woke up and could barely walk with a high ankle sprain. Talk about high highs and then a low (glass ceiling theory much?). I went to rehab and it feels a bit better, but still can’t fully jump or squat on it… the rehab continues.

Always Believe,
