I broke my contract with modeling agencies to become an independent artist and this is how it's going.
This had been on my mind for quite some time, but I was afraid of the "consequences" of breaking these contracts. I wanted to become a fully independent artist once again.
However, one Sunday morning I woke up and my intuition spoke immediately. I knew that my time of being a signed model had ended and I was faithful that breaking these contracts would not cost me anything.
So, by Monday morning I made a plan for myself on how I was going to create my own Empire. Starting off slowly, I made a to-do list.
On Tuesday my free public transport was reactivated [as a student living in the Netherlands] so I decided to visit a random place to go and create content.
I went on Google Maps and looked up cities on the south of Rotterdam. then I came along Breda and while zooming in I noticed a small town called Oosterhout. I like the architecture and decided I wanted to visit this town.
Little did I know I was setting myself up for succes. I packed lunch, wore a cute outfit and took the train to Breda. From here I took the bus and got off at a random stop. When I actually got off I had absolutely no clue where I was, but I followed a random lady into a small street and apparently I ended up in some sort of "gated" community.
To me this was succes because I love being in proximity to beautiful homes and cars, it motivated and inspires me. As a kid I used to draw my dream home as big as possible and create different functional rooms. I would always dream of living somewhere that made me feel rich and luxurious, being surrounded by people who value quality.
When I walked down those streets people greeted me, treated me like I belonged and wasn't a stranger to the area. I even went into a footballclub and asked to use the property for creating my content.
I was welcomed and given the space to do my thing, people trusted me.
Not only because of the way that I looked, but the way I carried myself. How inviting I was to people and presented myself. I make it my mission in life to always look good, because it makes me feel good. And I'm not talking about designer clothing and expensive things, I'm talking about clothing that makes me feel sexy, comfortable and hugs my curves. Accessories that increase my beauty and are of quality. You don't have to spend much to look like a million bucks.
Feeling like a million bucks resulted in me creating beautiful content and stepping out of my comfort zone. This was my first step to building my empire. And I know for a fact I am already being rewarded.
