HUSTLED MY WAY HERE

It has been a while since I have put my thoughts on digital paper! Lets recap, I finished college, graduated, and made it to the Latin Honor Society. I killed it when it came to my personal projects which you can find on my website AlexisCardoza.com below is one of many that I created with the help of a very talented friend.

Lets talk about the hustle mentality here, I’ve been hustling my ass off since I was in my early 20’s. Everything I did, I did with a purpose. The love for the film and television industry fueled me. I knew one day I would be exactly where I am today. I will give you some insights on my journey, and some feedback with advice on what not to listen and what to pay attention to.

You hear it all the time, “work hard and often to make your dreams come true.” Thats not just a saying, thats reality. You hear the cliche talk about the dream job, dream home, dream girl, and other things that come along with the dreams you hold. Those are all true.

My accomplishments in the film industry are still being manifested, even though I am still considered a novice in the business, I am still writing, filming, and editing my way to the top. The work and opportunities are never done with me in the film industry. Lets leave that there for a while, and let me tell you where I am now.

Hustle, it has led me here. Where is here? I am now heading a tv/media studio for a top company in the city, what city? New York city of course, and you know what they say, “If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere”. It’s true! Did I get the “dream” job? YES! I did, and it’s put me in such a great position to excel in this business.

If you follow me on social media you will see the work I will be putting forth into the world. Let me give you some advice that I have followed and has brought me to where I am now. This advice has been given to me by business professionals, mentors, and by family like my late brother, JOJO.

  1. Do not let anyone tell you that you cannot do what you want with your dreams and aspirations.
  2. If you are not certain about what you want to do, don’t let it bring you down or freak out, continue figuring out the path you are seeking and find that one thing you are confident with and hustle the fuck out of it.
  3. In no way shape or form allow anyone to ruin your happiness or relationship.
  4. Don’t compare yourself to others. Your journey is yours and yours only.
  5. Be yourself, there is so many wanna be’s at the end of the day, there is only one of you, and that is the only one that matters.

Lets elaborate a little on 3, people who are not happy will try to bring negative energy towards you, people who don’t know better will also try to interfere in your life. If you are happy with something or someone, don’t lose that thing or person. Love + happiness = success. Trust me on that, if you have someone you can share your passion with, DO NOT LOSE THEM!



You got this! If you ever feel like life is weighing you down, hit me up on twitter or any other social network you follow me on. Life is good and good turns into happiness.

I hope to see you again soon dear friends, with even better and bigger news! Until next time, Hustle!
