Many of us want something different, but what could it be? Are we willing to allow ourselves to look? What career would make you excited about Monday morning?
Recently, an article in the Phoenix Business Journal caught my eye. Below are excerpts as Shad allowed himself to explorer the career of his dreams.
Is it any wonder that a guy who spent his childhood fabricating everything from Lego sculptures to rebuilt automobiles would grow up to own a company known for creating the world’s largest Miller Lite bottle?
It doesn’t surprise Shad Bruce a bit.
“I was always creative as a child,” said Bruce, who owns Detail Design & Fabrication, a Tempe business that designs and constructs indoor/outdoor signage, three-dimensional displays and trade-show exhibits for clients including Westcor, Phoenix International Raceway and the Arizona Diamondbacks. “I was always building things. I started with Legos and worked my way up to skateboards, bikes and cars. That was my early fabrication experience.”
Bruce earned an industrial design degree from Arizona State University’s School of Architecture & Landscape Architecture and launched DD&F in 1998 to provide design, fabrication and installation services under one roof. His work with the Diamondbacks includes the fully branded head-to-toe makeover of Chase Field with the team’s new color scheme — not to mention the design, construction and installation of a 36-foot-tall, three-dimensional Miller Lite bottle, which debuted at the ballpark this spring to trumpet Diamond Club sponsor Miller Brewing Co.
If Shad can start out with Legos and end up with a three-dimensional Miller Lite bottle, what is holding you back?
