Whether you have dreams of being a movie star, want to appear on television, or have a script or screenplay that the world should know about, you’ve probably considered moving to Hollywood. This is the place where many people have moved to make their dreams of being famous come true. However, if you’re not familiar with the area or you don’t know what to expect from the Hollywood culture, there are some important things you need to know before making this major change in your life.
Of course, we’ve all heard that Hollywood is full of superficial people who only care about money and good looks. It has also long been understood that Hollywood is filled with drugs, booze and late-night parties where some pretty weird stuff takes place. Sure, there’s some truth to that, but there are also people in Hollywood who actually get things done. These are the people who bring you the entertaining shows and movies you’ve come to know and love.
Are you sure you want to become a Hollywood resident? Before you make your final decision, here are a few things you need to know.

Being successful in Hollywood is one of the things that people envy the most. Don’t be surprised if you find that some of your family members and friends start to downplay your accomplishments, or criticize you whenever they get the chance. They are likely intimidated by the fact that you followed your dreams and are starting to make a name for yourself. Learn to stay focused, even though their negativity may hurt or anger you. Be prepared to display strength of character when this happens. You’ll be proving to your loved ones that you have what it takes to be a professional, and you’ll prove to yourself that you’re strong enough to handle whatever life brings your way.
