Join LinkedIn Hello all. I am a singer, turned musician with several bands and songs in a growing collection of work spanning many years. Music put me on stages and got me interested on how live sound works.

The Plan: Move out of a home where I'm no longer wanted or respected. (Check) Find a place to stay with no roommates and no rent for a couple months (Check) - A Good friend offered up a heated 5th wheel! Get a 2nd job, evening and weekends seasonal (Check) - I start today. Get rid of all extra luggage and stuff. Firesale! (Ongoing) Trade the Mini Cooper S for something with a bit more storage - avoid U-Haul and storage lockers. Network in the L.A. area (Ongoing) Ask work for a company transfer to the L.A. area. (Check) - They have agreed. Stage moving away parties. (Ongoing) Move to the area the job will be in, hit up CraigsList for a room to get stable. Then we worry about the future.

Just got the word today, my transfer has been accepted. Good thing I bought that truck yesterday. It's all coming together. #littlenervous #timeToGo #LifeGoals #LifeChanges

Congratz, your very lucky to be able to go to LA... not doing well in the UK.

Amy Hilburn

Your logo is awesome! Safe travels and best of luck.

Rick Reynolds

Sorry to hear that Tony. If it's not working out where you are, find a way out! I started this plan with Very little money, just motivation and a loose plan. I've raised well over what I need to move and now have a new vehicle and a job out of it. There are ways to make it better. Find them.

Rick Reynolds

Thank you Amy. I'll be blogging about the move on the FaceBook page linked above. Exciting times ahead. ...and a ROAD TRIP!

Tony Fisher

Hey Rick, Don't get me wrong I'm trying, I couldn't get anything in the uk so I have been lucky enough to take on some freelance work from Italy. Early days but I have no intention of giving up. Again congratulations and good luck.

Rick Reynolds

Just starting is Always tough. I wish you the best in your work! /cheers

Might anyone in the LA area have an extra room I could rent for a month or 2 as I get things situated? I'm currently using CraigsList for Sublets in the area, but thought I'd ask here. Feel free to PM me with any questions. Single Non-Smoker Quiet No Pets.
