We had the good fortune of connecting with Jaret Martino and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jaret, what do you attribute your success to?
Taking risks and being able to re-frame are incredibly valuable traits personally and professionally.

Jumping in and moving through the unknown always lead you to the place you were meant to go. While that looks differently for everyone and often times does not resemble the idea or picture most had in mind. The lessons along the way are there, and if you remain open to discovery can be vital for your growth and longevity.

Strength and determination are words that some people like to just hashtag, however they often take blood, sweat and tears. Too often in our society we just see the big and pretty pictures. However there is a lot of sacrifice and hard work that goes in behind the scenes. There’s also a lot of noise and listening to anything except your heart will surely leave you in a state of confusion.

Get connected to yourself and your souls purpose. I like to remember my dreams as a child and utilize that freedom and apply it today as tenacity.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
One of my absolute favorite things to do in Los Angeles is hike and my favorite trail is Los Leones. It offers such a great way to clear your mind and gain perspective when things feel overwhelming. The views are really beautiful.

It’s great that the weather here typically allows outdoor dining and being able to sit and people watch or take in a serene setting is also lovely. Some of the best places for this are throughout Silver Lake, Beverly Hills and of course along the coast line.

I love checking out local Artists and Music and Echo Park has some really great things happening as well. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
This is so very true. When I look at the credits of the Films we have made it brings so much joy! I’m so grateful to the talented cast and crew. Since our mission is bringing awareness to subjects deserving attention, we’ve had an incredible support system of like-minded people and partnerships, including The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, C.A.P.S. Bullying Prevention Service, StepUp, and Awareness Media (501c3). KindSnacks for their donation of Kindbars.
