T-Mobile: Life Without Limits

T-Mobile just completed a video campaign, “Life Without Limits” that features Andy Blackman Hurwitz who is the co-founder of Baby Loves Disco and from Philly. Vimeo award winning director Eliot Rausch and his crew will follow around Andy for two days to find out how he’s able to balance his entrepreneurial spirit with raising 3 sons.

A few things I love about this video is how much I can relate to Andy Blackman Hurwitz and his connection to Philly. My job besides being a mom is running FrugalPhillyMom.com and I’m blessed to be able to work and be at home with my child. At times it’s not the most conventional situation, because I don’t have specific work hours and I have to be there for my child 100% of the time. Having my smartphone allows me to stay connected with my work while I’m out on the go with my family. I guess living this life without limits has allowed me to do what I love.

I love Andy Blackman Hurwitz’s story and how it all just started with an idea. Check out this video and see for yourself.

Andy Blackman Hurwitz combined his passion for music with the love for his family. Post a photo that shows you living your life without limits on Twitter or Instagram with #LifeWithoutLimits and @TMobile. Presented by T-Mobile, the only nationwide 4G network with unlimited data.’
