YO! Im so pumped that you are here...
My name is Lolade Rufai, Im an actress, I am slightly crazy, I love to laugh and most Importantly I love to see others succeed right along side me.
Success is one of those big things looming right over our heads and goverining our every move. I have one thing to ask you. are you happy right now ? I can bet the answer Is NO !… and I know why.
Let me guess.. 1. You are not achieving what you want. 2. You are not reaching your fullest potential, 3. quite frankly, you’ve become a little use to having the world take over. Now its time to put the big girl panties on and take full control. Ill show you how but first a quick review of my last year In actions.
I was reallly starting to get myself back on my feet not quite sure If I wanted representation. I had to map out my journey for the year I knew LA was for certain.

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
I belive you have to put the power of happiness In your own hands. I achived big things and had a pursuit that I think keep me going. you dont have t0 have it all but you do need to know what you want. It all starts with a vision. I am here to tell you that It is ok to be confused, It is ok to be a little embarassed because your friends are going on holiday and you cant afford it, It is ok to call mum and ask her to send you a tenner and It is ok to be in LOVE with this path you have chosen and in FRUSTRATION that its yeilded no results. It is not ok to sit back another year waiting for someone to give you what you deserve. you have to take it and it all starts with your mindset.
If you want a year of making things happen a year of being In charge of your own destiny, you have to be ready to take action. I turned down a job because It wasnt In line with what I want to do, I spent money filming a reel that was exactly what I want for myself I was unafraid to say bye bye to my agents as I hoped on a plane to los angeles I wrote to agents across the country telling them why I was right for them. Now this ballsyness Is what you need to shake it up a little. Start being the leader and get your self In the driver seat when It comes to your own life. I can help you do it. Have you let yourself live the life you truly envision.
