The Meaning of Resilience to Me by Adler Romero

Hey everyone it has been a long minute since I wrote my first blog on my site, since then I have moved to Arizona and have struggled every single minute out here. That being said we are not giving up, after countless tries to find work out here. My family and I have made the decision to move back to California for the time being.

Some of you may be asking “why” with how expensive California is.

1. Well to start there are more opportunities out there that I don’t have here for my career. California is one of the homesteads for the entertainment industry.

2. Government help, in the past my family and I have relied on government assistance when I was in between work and have fallen on hard times. We are there again. My fiance needs health insurance to get surgery on something going on with her body before it gets any worse. My daughters are behind on their doctor visits and we need some help to cope with the financial hardship we are in at the moment. I am sharing this not for pity but to show that not everyone’s journey is perfect and we all need a little help sometimes.

3. We miss home!, we miss our friends, we miss the people that helped inspire us to chase our dreams. We need that energy, the love and connections we have made over the year to refresh us to get at it again and hunt down what we want out of this life.

Now what does this have to do with being Resilient. Well going back home doesn’t mean we are giving up, it means we have fallen and now we are getting ourselves back up. We understand what we need and that is just another start to the next chapter in our life.

There are a few things brewing that can turn out to be life changing, and we are not going to submit to life and settle with the bare minimum in how to survive. We can not let ourselves get stuck in a position like some other loved ones who seem to deny the truth that is right in-front of them.

Some may look at this as a moment of weakness that we are not sucking it up and doing what needs to be done. but it is the complete opposite we are not lying to ourselves. We are making the effort to change our circumstances giving us the best shot we have even if it may come off as weak.

I have been on this journey toward success for my entire career, I have had my ups and I have had my downs, but every single day I wake up and I look at my daughters it tells me to push, do not settle, and do not let anyone’s failures dictate how my success is going to happen.

My family and I have a dream and that dream is going to come true in one form or another, I am just grateful we are not alone in the journey. We will make sure our dream does not just benefit us but it will benefit everyone around us.

Never give up on your dreams, never give up on your passions, never let anyone tell you what you can and can not do. We have one life to live, do not waste it on someone else dream.

Every failure ends with a new beginning, take the experience you have attained from that failure and use that to make your next journey into a success.!

New Beginnings by Adler Romero

After much thought and care, my family and I have decided to start a new. Currently I am still working full time at the LA film school in Los Angeles, California. Soon though we will be living for the first time in our lives outside of our home state and moving to Arizona.

Now with big changes like this comes new opportunities, new locations and new adventures. At first I was scared to think about leaving my stable life that I have been living for almost the past year, but slowly and surely I am warming up and even becoming excited about the adventures ahead.

One of which is building this website and starting another start up. Over my career I have now been apart of started 3 start ups that I was a founding member of teaching me valuable lessons along the way. This time I now know what I want out of my career and out of life.

SPEND MORE TIME WITH MY FAMILY, MAKE AMAZING ART AND EMPOWER OTHERS!

we are in different times from what my parents and their parents before them had gotten used to when it comes to success.

In their mind it was get a career (stable 9-5 job), get married (usually high school sweet heart), buy a house (30 year mortgage) and have kids. and at the end of it all, you would be over worked, in debt and way to tired to even spend time with your family.

Today it is even harder to imagine coming close to having any of that especially in California.

And that is why we are making this move and redefining what success means to us. Yes I will be married, yes I do have kids. but the difference is I don’t want a house or a job that is going to make me not have time for them or let us enjoy life to the fullest.

That is why I am starting this entrepreneurial journey again. I know now more then ever I need to be with my family and I need to be my own boss, I need to try and change how the entertainment industry works even if it is a small change.

Life is meant to be explored and enjoyed, to be vigilant in gaining knowledge, and last but not least to love and empower each other.

So with this first blog post I introduce the “AE FOUNDRY”. If you have any questions about what we do or any collaborative ideas, please drop us a line on our contact page and we will be happy to answer your questions.
