Full Guide To Moving To Los Angeles

Moving To Los Angeles

Everybody wants to know about moving to Los Angeles. I know I did for a LONG LONG time.
The weather…. the girls… the celebrities, the opportunity if you have the hustle.

I moved to LA about 2 years ago and since I moved, everything in my life has excelled.
I became a millionaire, I drive a car that cost $210,000 new, and a $80,000 Benz C43 AMG Convertible, I live in a $10,000 a month townhouse in one of the most popular Hollywood spots at Hollywood and Vine.

These things aren’t to brag… they are to show the accomplishments that I honestly believe Los Angeles and the energy here has allowed me to have and shine with.
When I first moved here I lived in someone’s living room and then I shared a tiny studio apartment with someone who now works for me.


Sounds crazy, but bear with me I’m going to explain a lot of what I’ve learned and how you can move to LA in this video.

There is a reason actors, comedians, music artists and everyone who is or is going to become famous generally move to Los Angeles.
It’s the place to be.

You may have been considering moving to LA for a long time and you have wondered how you can do it.

This video isn’t just for Music Artists, it’s for anyone that wants to move to Los Angeles to chase their dreams.

I want to mention, you don’t really NEED a car in Los Angeles if you move to the right area. You can walk or Uber everywhere.

The first year I was in LA I rode a $50 bicycle I bought from a Bum on the street.

If you want to move TO Lose Angeles leave comments below that also include your Facebook link and when you want to move. You can all talk together and see who wants to move at the same time and use this video and it’s comments as a hub to help eachother get out here.

First let me talk about how I ended up moving here.

I saved up about $3,000 so from that you can tell you don’t need a lot to move here.
I had someone I barely knew in LA that saw a post I made on Facebook about me wanting to move to LA

That person inboxed me and told me they were actually leaving their apartment for the summer and needed someone to sublet it (meaning take it over)

It was a 1 bedroom apartment in west hollywood and the rent on it was $1,750
That was WAYYYY to much but believe it or not that is the normal price of a 1 bedroom in West Hollywood.

So I found a friend who would go with me for the summer who was actually my tour manager. So now we only had to pay around $900 each to live there over the summer.
My plan was to find a job while I was there and just go with the flow and If I could permanently move then I would do that.

I met a lot of people and became friends with everyone I could in that 3 months.
I also built up my online businesses, built other streams of income online and all that. I have a full course on how to do affiliate marketing that is 100% free I’ll put a link below..

When the 3 months was up the person came back and I said I still wanted to stay there, they told me I could live in their living room for $750 a month. Deal!

From there I had a fall out with that person and actually moved into a small studio apartment that I shared with someone and that was $600 a month for me to put my mattress in the closet.

I didn’t care, I was just happy to be in LA.

Not a day went by where I didn’t work my butt off and keep trying to find ways to grow, take new opportunities and hustle.

If you want to move to LA, you won’t be living a lavish life for a long time but that’s the struggle that most people go through when they first move to LA.
You have to pay your dues to be here and stay here.

There were a lot of times where I felt it would just be easier to quit being here and go live in a friends basement for a few hundred bucks a month back in Chicago…
But if I did that…. that was giving up. I fought through the EASY move back to Chicago and because I never gave up, now I am here today.

Moral of the story here is…you just gotta take a risk sometimes and if you overcome the tough times, you will be rewarded.

So now for a quick step by step to do list of how to move to Los Angeles



1) I recommend you move here to the Hollywood area if you can
first off, you are going to love it

But also because this means you don’t have to have a car, worry about parking or anything like that.

A car payment, car insurance, gas for the car, parking meters, and worrying about parking… That’s all like $800 a month if you include time wasted finding parking as well as stress. Trust me… It’s annoying.

If you move to the valley cuz you find a friend or something, do that.
I also have to point out that I lived in West Hollywood when I moved here, then Hollywood in a ghetto area but I still LOVED IT.

Then I moved 45 Minutes away to the woodland hills area to build my businesses for a year and realized living so far from Hollywood for someone in the entertainment business was a terrible idea.

This is because I am no where near where everything is happening when I’m in the valley. You run into people but generally not people ‘In the mix’
That’s why I moved right back to the center of Hollywood as soon as my lease was up in woodland hills.

2) Obviously, try to find a friend or group of friends that would be willing to move with you to LA.

Fin friends who are adventurous and hard working who you enjoy being around.
If you have 3 people who all have money saved and are willing to get jobs in LA, you will be able to move to LA with A LOT less stress. You also have more income as a group and your bills will be lower.

Even if all 3 of you move into a 1 bedroom apartment… trust me… it’s worth moving to LA. You will figure stuff out in that first year and then everything will get better from there if you are making the right decisions and have a good head on your shoulders.

3) Whether you find somebody or you don’t find somebody now it is time for you to start looking for a place to live.

There are often sublets, extra rooms for rent or other places you can easily find.
People need the extra money to survive in LA so they put their rooms up for rent.
Some people couldn’t make it out here so they leave and they need to sublet the place
Or some people have roommates who couldn’t keep up the hustle and they left so now they need a roommate.

There is opportunity everywhere

Where to look for places to Move To Los Angeles

1) Craigslist Ads in Los Angeles

People gotta survive and craigslist is littered with people offering rooms for rent and all that. While you’re on there also look for a job and ways to make money.

2) There are a BUNCH of Facebook groups completely dedicated to people who are looking for roommates and stuff like that. I’ve looked in them before.
There are also these groups for just girls so they don’t have to worry about moving in with a creepy guy. They aren’t that hard to find!

The cool thing about the Facebook pages is you see their profile so know what kind of person they are before you decide to make a big decision like moving.

If you want to find additional roommates and don’t have friends who want to move to Los Angeles with you, You can even find other people in these groups who want to move at the same time as you. You become friends and lets say you live In Iowa and they live in North Carolina, you can schedule your move to Los Angeles at the same time.

3) The last option is to look on rental websites but the thing here is that now you would be getting into a lease and it might be just a bit more expensive like this. Either way, get out to Los Angeles and make it happen.

I want you to realize before you move that your living situation won’t be AMAZING at first, but the first move is something I think all people who move to Los Angeles have to go through almost like paying your dues to be able to be here.

I went thru a few terrible moves and almost every successful or stable person I have met here who moved without the help of their parents generally went through something similar and tough before it got easy.

If you are making the move to Los Angeles just know that this is something that will change your life for the better in a lot of ways but it is going to require work from you first.

What should you move to Los Angeles with?


I recommend you move with just 2 suitcases… don’t pack up your life and move… Pack up your necessities and be able to be more mobile and move.

Again If you want to move TO Lose Angeles leave comments below that also include your Facebook link and when you want to move. You can all talk together and see who wants to move at the same time and use this video and it’s comments as a hub to help each other get out here.
