Most of the time our dreams start out rosy. That’s the thing with dreams, they don’t have rough edges, they don’t cut you, they don’t disappoint you, they don’t leave you destitute.
Chasing your dream however can cost you everything you have so you better be sure you’re willing to make the investment.
I, of course at the time had no knowledge of any of my own sage advice as I hopped on the plane at Heathrow on the 19th of March (my birthday), 2009, and headed to Hollywood, California. A film finance company out of the United Kingdom had read my screenplays and they wanted to make two of my movies. I was going to meet a very powerful “PRODUCER.”
Everything was perfect, my dream was in motion, and soon it would be fulfilled; I could already smell the red carpet.
Unfortunately, I only had a few dollars in my pocket and I did not know a single soul in this new land that would one day become my home.
