Livin' In A Dream World

Growing up, I was taught that I should follow my dreams. I learned that money is not the ultimate key to life's happiness, it will always come. But do what you love and if you can make money doing it - even better! A lot of times our dreams, the thing that we really want to do with our lives, can seem somewhat far fetched. Maybe you've gotten negative feedback. Maybe you don't have the money or the time to further your education to do what you love and you feel like giving up. Maybe the pursuit of what you'd love to do scares you to death. But sometimes we have to grab the bull by the horns. Sometimes no matter what people say or how they react, how hard it is, whatever obstacles you face, you just have to do it. In the end, that is the only thing that will make you smile as you lay your head down at night. In my 28 years of knowing Wilbur and his 11 years of pursuing his dream, I have learned what it means to live for what you love. His example has inspired me to pursue what I want most. It certainly isn't easy. Like many dreams, it seems unattainable at times. But Wilbur's drive and continued success has kept me from quitting completely. Please watch below to see some of that well deserved success and how it pays off. And always try to make your dream come true.

I am so proud of you Billy! You deserve this (and so much more!). Muchos kudos for getting selected, and standing out from all the others in that group. Ashanti's intro was right on...I wish I had as much heart and stamina to go head on and take the risks. Besos, abrazos, and I can't wait to show the kids, especially Samarra, their Uncle Billy.

Loved seeing your dream come to life and getting to meet your wonderful family!

Seeing someone else pursue their dream gives fuel to mine. Thank you for sharing your GENIUS!

I remember saying so many times to you (my 3 children) that you should do what makes you happy since I was never happy in my chosen field. Ashanti, you are right on point .. just step out on faith and do it. Billy, I can't begin to tell you how much pride and pleasure I have in seeing you continue to follow your dream; and seeing your design on the runway is a plus. Your designs are fabulous. As difficult as I know it is to secure a place in this very competetive field, I am awed by your tenacity and heart. Designer Baby, there is so much more within your grasp so keep on doing what you're doing. Soon the fashion world will recognize...........

Look at you being all wordy and prolific! I'm scared! HA! Seriously, words can't express the pride I felt for Wilbur that night, or how honored I was to be included! My friend is the personification of tenacious, and I am beyond excited to see his dreams starting to come true. Do your thing boy! (And you too McShant - get your write on girl!)
