Love these thoughts on the virtue of working hard at what you love by my friend +Matt Gibson - and appreciate the mention!

Enjoy and share!
If you know what you want to be, then knowing what to do comes into focus.

Brought to you by popular demand (and thanks to all those who emailed me personally about this), #PlusOneCollectionIII  is now available in ebook format (high resolution downloadable PDF - looks amazing on big screens and tablets!). 

However, due to the work that goes along with this option, the ebook will only be on sale until the end of April. Please don't wait to get yours. 

Click on the link below to get your copy and also please share the news with your friends. 
Collection of beautiful photography from an online community of photographers submitting their art for a good cause, supporting "Saving Eliza" foundation.
