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

Hi Ronnie , if you had to put a million dollars to work immediately, how would you go about investing it?
This is easy. If I had a million dollars I would invest in a beautiful home for my family and an amazing tattoo studio. Maybe 2.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I have had some challenges along the way, especially establishing myself when I was just starting out in an established and somewhat close-knit industry. But I persevered because I knew I could be good enough. I would encourage anyone else whos trying to find the way to not listen to the naysayers, push through and make it happen.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Being from Los Angeles, my favorite place to visit is back home obviously. But if friends came out to visit I think would take them on one of the hiking trails, maybe Camelback Mountain or Papago Park. Then I might take them to the .Odysea Aquarium

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I have to give the credit to Rebecca Robles for pushing me into this career. I don’t think I would have ever done it without her.
