“I’m 22, I do make $100,000 a year and that’s cool. I wanna act, I wanna do these things, I’m gonna break down right now.” Wallace said on a video posted to his tik tok page. “What are you good at?” Paul asked him.

“Then why would I give you a job?” Paul replied.

“Go make content, make stuff with your friends. I’m glad you quit your job. It takes ba**s to do that, but now you gotta activate. I’m not the guy directly. My team is [mimes something very small] – we’re locked.” ‘The Maverick’ then continued: “Life isn’t about handouts, you’ve gotta work.”

“If you really are serious about it, you should move to LA and just like you approached me, start making connections with every single person in LA. I’m serious, that’s it. I’ve always said, if you can talk to someone, you can make it in LA.”
