A couple of years ago, I saw a fitness magazine that I felt I wanted to be featured in. This magazine reaches close to a million readers and viewers of their TV program. I contacted the editor and I expressed my intentions. Today, two years later, in a 70+ beautiful weather, I was photographed in one of the most beautiful parks by a great photographer. The picture is not going to be in the magazine though :(. It is going to be on the cover :).
Go after your dream. You have nothing to loose but everything to gain.
