TONY’S MOVIE FINALLY HITS THE BIG SCREEN!
Next to the birth of our children, our wedding, and an assortment of other reasonably important occasions, the opening of this particular film is one of the grandest landmarks of our marriage. Why? Because we survived!
But seriously, it’s the culmination of decades of focused intent, tireless dedication, and faith—the faith part was the extent of my wifely contribution—but also because…
You see, the life of a producer is one of risk and passion, which makes marriage to a producer a bit… unpredictable. If security and stability are deal-breakers, you best move along! Fortunately for us, I’ve always valued freedom and creativity more than financial peace of mind—and if you’ve been reading my Mindful Musings, you know how I feel about worry—so Tony and I are a great match!
That doesn’t mean, however, that the ride hasn’t been riddled with plummeting drops and stomach-churning corkscrews. Some of those drops lasted so long that we couldn’t see the next rise. Some of the defeats felt so permanent that we were tempted to give them their own bedroom. Sorry boys; there’s always the couch. But God favors fools and children. So, here we are… young at heart… and we’d love for you to celebrate with us!
Step 1) Go see THE EQUALIZER! Heck, take a posse and storm the theaters. Snap photos of your baddass selves while you’re there and Tweet, post, and otherwise make a nuisance of yourself.
Step 2) Listen to PRODUCING: THE EQUALIZER W/ GUEST TONY ELDRIDGE ON EMPOWERED LIVING RADIO, an awesome podcast with Tony and I as we chat about the journey, future projects, amazing authors (Heather Graham, Jonathan Maberry, Raymond Benson, Jeff Miller, David Fisher, Vera S. William), and how things REALLY work in Hollywood.
