Check out our interview with Model, Influencer & Entrepreneur Lexi Griswold who is the modern day hustler – and she’d here to tell us just how she had to put aside the stigmas in order to see the success she has today.

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Lexi ventured to LA on her own at age 21 to pursue her dream in modeling. Much like the true LA story goes, financial hardship soon hit – and getting hit on by casting directors that never ended up booking her because she wouldn’t…go to dinner with them… was not paying the bills. After much deliberation, she gave Only Fans a shot… rather than being objectified by these people, why not take control, own your creative direction, and make money while doing it? The result paid off.

Aside from the financial success, Lexi has been featured in top brand campaigns including Fashion Nova, Ashoc Energy, KO watches, Vanety Planet, Green Juice, Revolve, Skinny Mint, Dolls Kill, and Motel Rocks. And this is just the start.

When Lexi is not being an entrepreneur and building her empire, she enjoys spending time in nature, going on hikes, cooking, shopping and working out.

Growing up watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians, seeing how their lifestyle is was always very inspiring, and I looked up to Kim Kardashian and her work ethic.

The most important thing when you are shooting is?

To have confidence in myself.

Almost every day!

Now talking about Instagram, can you share some tips for keeping your account interesting?

I try to switch up my story posts a lot. Even if my day-to-day routine is pretty similar, I try not to post the same things every day to keep it interesting!

So many people follow you. How do you feel about that pressure of always doing the right thing and encourage people to follow their dreams?

I don’t feel too much pressure as I know that I am a good person, and my actions will always show that I am. I try and post a lot of motivational videos/quotes on my stories, and I get a lot of good feedback from people when I do that.

I bet you get millions of it, but what are the best and worst Instagram DM pickup lines you received so far?

Oh man, there are so many, the worst has to be from creepy older men, and the best gotta be just the sweet genuine DM’s. I can always tell the difference.
