I've learned in the past four years of living in LA, that you are who you surround yourself with, and you tend to attract the same circumstances those around you do.

For example, If your goal is to be a working actor in LA, you should befriend and hang out with working actors who are consistently going on auditions and booking gigs. There is only so much you can learn or offer someone that is not actively working in an industry that you want to pursue. Associating yourself with the "working" people of Los Angeles is imperative to your growth and development. You have to understand how your respective industry works. The only was is to surround yourself with those that have a hands on knowledge of it.

I've seen too many talented and driven people move to Los Angeles and lose their way (I was one of them), because the people they choose to hang around are not "go-getters." They say they want to do this and that, but never follow through, and eventually become bitter about the Los Angeles entertainment industry as a whole. That negative energy is extremely contagious and will eventually infect you and your outlook on LA.

It's smart for you to find like minded people who are eager to succeed in LA. These are the people that will challenge you and make you a better person. There are numerous resources in Los Angeles that can help you meet and befriend some great people.

How do I create my environment?

Meetup.com - This is an awesome place to meet like-minded people. There are hundreds, if not thousands of meetups all over LA. Find the right one that aligns with your goals and attend.

LA Actors Tweet up- Are you an actor? The LA Actors Tweet up is held on a quarterly basis for actors that are interested in networking. It is a great place to introduce yourself to the LA acting scene.

Grub With Us- Is a website that schedules dining events throughout Los Angeles. They offer numerous locations to dine at. From Mexican to Asian cuisine. You pay between $20 to $30 depending on the restaurant location and have dinner with interesting people of Los Angeles. It's a great way to meet people over dinner.

Lets Lunch- Similar to Grub With us but slightly cheaper.

These are a few great places to meet great people in LA. Remember, to surround yourself with those you aspire to be. Now get to work!
