Perhaps I’ve been in New York for too long, but coming back to LA and the West Coast has reminded me that a good positive attitude is so important. People here smile, greet, and actually talk to each other… something I would never do in New York City. Here, people want to get to know you, they want to talk to you for a bit and they love it when you have an interesting story to tell. This shows. Your positive attitude will exude in your workplace and people would want to work with you. Be the person someone will miss if you’re not there. Make sure you’re here in LA for the right reasons. I’ve loved my experience here because I love the atmosphere of work and collaboration. It has taught me so many things… one of them being that hustlin’ does not mean you have to be a stressed out, neurotic, anxious person. You can slow it down. As long as you’re taking steps forward in your life, the rate at which you get there is not as important.
