We had the good fortune of connecting with Justin (The Millennial) and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Justin, how do you think about risk?
My entire career has been risky, I risked, uprooting my entire life and moving to Georgia with absolutely no close family to be an actor. So yeah, Risk. I take risk because I hate just feeling like i’m settling. So many people are just comfortable working 40 hours- a week, and for the people that are ok with that and that’s perfect, but for me I just feel like there so much more than that. Yes, do that, work 40-hours a week but also spend 10-hours a week on your own businesses, something you’re passionate about, so that one day, you can quit that 9-5 and do what truly makes you happy. I hear people complain about their jobs and where they aren’t in life, but aren’t doing anything to change that, it baffles me, stop being lazy, take the risk! What’s the worst that can happen?! You succeed? Yikes!

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
is it cliché to say “because I’m unique? ” I feel like everyone says that, but it’s true. There isn’t anyone in the world that does what I can do, I can jump from actor to director to producer to sound to light to photographer to graphic designer to writer to designer, I mean the list goes on. I got to where I am today because of what life experiences I went through growing up. My business handles Marketing, I spent a portion of High school and College focused on marketing. My business sells merchandise, I worked in retail for 6 years. I produce a few web series, well I went to school for acting. It’s like, I wouldn’t be where I’m at today or the person I am today if I didn’t life through those life experiences.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I actually have a list saved to my google drive, sorted by restaurant, night-life, attractions, star ratings, price range. It’s sad really.

But we’d definitely go and get cheesesteaks at Woodys! the Buckhead Location! Get some drinks at hookah at Lily’s! and Explore Buckhead bars! We’d definitely have to hit the Ponce City Carnival at one point! Sadly, i’ve never been!
