Interview With Arian Simone: From Homelessness To Hollywood

"Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless." Jamie Paolinetti

Is it possible for you? I believe so!

I want you to take a look at every impossible obstacle in your way and recognize that there's a good chance that the impossible is just in your mind. Imagine overcoming it. Imagine just breaking through the barrier. Imagine the cheering crowd. Imagine writing a book about it and saving lives. Can you image the endless possibilities?

Who is Arian Simone?

Arian Simone is a child of God and a lover of people. Arian Simone is a visionary, leader, entrepreneur encouraging others to live and operate at the highest and best expression of themselves.

What is one of the pivotal moments in your life that gave you strength?

One of the pivotal moments in my life that gave me strength is when I was laid off from the one job I had for 30 days, when I was 23 years old and I was faced with putting my trust in God, which it should always be, and expecting Him to turn it around. I had literally went 7 days on bread and water alone, not because I was choosing to fast, but because that was all I had left and could afford at the that time. I got on my knees and prayed and cried out to God for a change. Someone called and asked could I do PR work for their spouse. The Answer was YES!! Had they called and asked me to clean the toilet, paint the walls, fold the laundry, the answer would have been YES. I just wanted to eat. From that I learned it was better to surrender my choice and not by force. I found that strength in my faith, my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ.

Tell us about your book?

My book is story about overcoming obstacles and living your best life. Despite what any situation may present, you can choose to "dance in the rain" (which is a chapter title) and look forward to overcoming that situation. In that chapter, I talk about how I snuck into the BET AWARDS, I was literally on welfare and food stamps, but I was determined to have fun! I don't advise people to sneak in anywhere, that was many years ago and I was much younger, but I do advise people to apply the principle. I share many memorable moments in my book where I explain the life principles behind them, readers will enjoy them as my humor is expressed in them also.

What inspired you to write the book and share your story?

My inspiration for writing the book was from people hearing my story, everyone's response was, you have to write a book. When people see all that I have accomplished from working on Block Buster #1 Movies, to servicing A List Celebrities and then they hear that I was homeless before the career, they are intrigued to know the back story. They too want to overcome and become greater, so I took it as my God Given duty to get it done.

What is the message we can hear you shouting from the mountaintop?

The message you can hear me shouting or whispering from the mountaintop to those on the climb is to enjoy the journey and keep God first!

You have such a unique signature style how did you embrace your uniqueness?

Well thanks for the compliment, I embrace my uniqueness because I love who I am, I love everything about me. So what you are witnessing is just a self expression of me loving me.

Leave us with one last piece of advice.

The one last piece of advice that I want to leave you with is to "Stay in The Ring", as long as you continue to fight, you can win. You can lose possessions, but you cannot afford to lose your mind! If you keep a winning mindset, you will win, I can't tell you how, I can't tell you when, but I can tell you that you will.
