Dont fall for cheap tricks... This is me with Little Mix having a great time on set shooting some content for McDonald's a few years back. At the time I was on top of the world, hanging out with celebrities, impressing my friends and flexing on the gram. Life seemed great but it wasn't. I was actually having a bad time. Low paid jobs. Getting treated like shit by 'talent'. One big shot on a shoot once spat a latte back into a cup and told me to taste it. Not ideal. People always try and suck you in with the glamor and allure of working with celebrities or big name franchises in the film industry. Some people make a great living out of it but the large majority of people get shafted and taken advantage of by this kind of work. You probably know a few people with Instagram that are seemingly popping with an endless stream of selfies with big names on the sets of music videos or content jobs. But most won't tell you how much they're taking home at the end of the tax year. One of the best things I ever did was stop saying yes to being shafted for 'opportunities'. I decided to make my own. Set up my own company. Make myself a boss and hustle to be at the top of the pyramid. It's early days but I'm building my own empire, not someone else's. That gets me more motivated than a selfie with a celebrity ever could. What motivates you?
