Hey guys, Robert here..
In this afternoon’s post, I want to share some of my personal experiences with you since I have been living in LA. If you are here on this blog, you might be someone that is considering moving out here to pursue your acting or modeling dreams. If this post, and blog in general, helps out even one of you in the process, then I would consider that a major success.
My advice: DO IT.
Is it easy, hell no.
But one thing that I have come to love by is, have no regrets.
The relative I live with over here in LA told me to always live your life with no regrets. He has a business called party bus mcallen and said when he first started it, people told him not to. Now, he is killing it with his business that he opened up another one here in LA.
With that said, things are not easy out here. To be honest, things are pretty cut throat here in LA. It really took me a good amount of time to get settled in when I first moved here.
Remember, I had actually been here many times for auditions, but it was always for a weekend, a week at most. Actually living here is so different.
Oh ya, If you missed my post last afternoon, you can see here to get caught up.
One of my first struggles was actually focusing on what I was here for. This city has so much to offer, and most of it is a distraction from your work.
When I first moved here, I wanted to go out every single night. I mean come on, it’s LA, who doesn’t want to be out.
This took a toll on me for a bit. I had to really snap out of it when I realized it was throwing off my performance at my auditions.
My second struggle was trusting WAY too many people. Like I stated earlier, this city is cut throat. Everyone here is always just looking out for themselves.
This is just a plain fact. People might seem nice, and some are, but there is always an ulterior motive behind the majority of them.
My best advice for you when it comes to this is just be aware of everything that is happening to you. There are going to be a ton of people that you are going to come into contact with in the industry, the last thing you want to do is get burned early on in your career.
Trust me, I learned the hard way.
I hope this post helped you out in some way, I hope to see you in LA soon!
