My Advice

Look alive and don’t spend time doubting yourself. Go to the beach. Shoot photos. Go the skatepark. Just get out there.

Whatever you enjoy most in life, pursue that as a career. Don’t worry about the money. As long as you do good work and surround yourself with people you want to be like, more work will begin to flow your way.

Finally, I wish someone would of told me to start a company ” LLC ” when I was younger. Today, there are so many different ways to make money. Whatever you are doing, you need everything to flow through a legit company.
