I worked with my friends at Tequila Don Julio to write this post. All opinions are my own.
Have you ever tried to do something that you knew in your heart is the right thing to do. It takes a lot of guts, passion and belief in oneself. It can sometimes be a very lonely road to travel. But the ones who do, can find great reward!
As a younger man, I wanted to be an actor. Most people saw that I was talented, but would follow their compliment with this statement, “Being a working actor is a one in a million shot”. I knew in my heart it’s what I was supposed to do. I took every role I could, no matter how small or large. I honed my craft and never listened to the people who told me it was too hard or out of my reach. By the time I was 17-years-old, I had toured through England, done television and music videos. By the time I was 25-years-old, I had worked in film.
I had a passion for acting and it served me well. Passions change and mature, but believing in yourself should be a constant throughout your entire life.
Don Julio Tequila has a passion for the tequila that they make and it all started with their owner, Don Julio Gonzalez.
It was his passion that inspired the creation of the world’s first luxury tequila. At a very young age, Don Julio González saw a unique opportunity in the production of tequila. He relied on his own passion and vision for the endeavor. He saw an opportunity to make tequila better and worked diligently to make his dream a reality. Eventually, he improved the entire tequila business from the ground up.
He was the first to let the agave plants mature completely before being harvested because he discovered they were more succulent and flavorful.
He also was the first to redesign the tequila bottle from being long and thin, to the more practical and pleasing short bottle that is now a tequila industry standard.
Don Julio González knew that passion can lead to greatness.
