    I need your advice: As many of you know I'm opening doors as an actor. There are a journalist, who wishes to interview me for the important publication where he works.

    It was the comment to another friend, who works in the media too and told me, that I was not deserved, the interview because, I was not as famous as my compatriot and friend Ricky Martin, to be interviewed.

    I know I lack more TV exposure in any novel. (Soap opera) The work I've done has been remarkable but in my region.

    Watch my MySpace page at:




    And tell me, If I deserved to be interviewed and talk about my next play?

    Although not as famous, will be interested to hear about me, through an interview?

    Why would you not "deserve" an interview? It will be one other avenue to get the word out about your work. Don't let any one ever tell you that you don't deserve something.

    You do!

    Let the journalist and editor decide if you deserve to be interviewed. Let the friend know when and where the interview will appear.

    If the journalist thinks you deserve to be interviewed, then don't let your friend's opinion influence you or make you doubt yourself. If you are working hard at something, you should feel proud of it and feel every right to be interviewed. You don't mention what publication it is, but there are many articles out there about people who don't share the name recognition of Ricky Martin.

    There is an old saying that "When the chips are down, you learn who your friends are". I think the same can be said, sadly, when the chips are Up. True friends love to see you succeed, and will even do anything they can to help you get there. Fake friends tear you down and belittle any success you may achieve. If the journalist wants to interview you, that is all that really matters. If he didn't think you were worthy of such exposure, he wouldn't have asked in the first place. Tell your friend that when you're rich and famous, he will NOT be part of your P.R. team or your entourage. icon_lol.gif
