Today’s guest is Oscar Collazos, an amazing comedian who
lives in New York. I asked him to join us on the podcast today because I loved
hearing about his journey into comedy and making it in New York.
Episode 3 Summary
As some of you know I moved to NYC about a year ago and its had its ups and downs. It was definitely not as smooth as I thought it would have been but I have persevered and continue to roll with the punches. During this time, Oscar and I have met up a few times and probably unbeknownst to him he gave me the boost of motivation here and there to get through some of the difficulties. This is why I wanted to share his story with my listeners and spread the hope and laughs to make it in a new environment.
This podcast runs a little on the long end but it is packed
with gems of valuable tips and advice for anyone; not just people interested in
comedy. It shows how in life you may be put in uncomfortable or foreign
situations but once you push through you only become stronger and wiser. Also there
will be doubters along the way but use that as fuel to really challenge
yourself to prove them wrong.
We close up the podcast with the lighting round where Oscar
answers two valuable questions:
What are some tips for people who move to a new
What is Oscar’s mantra that he repeats to
himself to stay motivated?

I am excited for the month of February because I have so many goals and plans on where to take Platform Latino and really level up. So to really kick off this month I have given myself a 30 day challenge! Well maybe not 30 days because February only has 28 days but it will give me a realizable goal to achieve for the month. The goal is to write a blog post every day of the month. (Don’t worry I will try my best to keep it interesting)
What are my goals for Platform Latino?
My goals for Platform Latino are to create a source for Latino
encouragement. I want this brand to be a platform for Latinos both young and
old to look and learn from for self-betterment. I will be writing articles on
topics I have learned about the Latino culture as well as things I have found
interesting in the past. Coming soon, I will start uploading an interview podcast,
which I bring on Latinos from all walks of life to tell their success story.
How did I come up with the idea for Platform Latino?
One day I was asked what my ultimate goal in life was and I answered that I
would want to leave a legacy of being an influential Latino that served as a
role model for future generations. The follow up question to that was “Who are
your role models?” – This really caught me off guard because I rambled off some
names but I quickly realized none of them were Latinos.
It hit me later when I went home and was embarrassed that I couldn’t really
name many mainstream Latino Leaders. I could easily name European, Caucasian
and even African American heroes but when it came to my own background, I was
at a loss for words.
I asked some friends of mixed cultures if they could name more than 5
mainstream Latino Leaders and many of them really couldn’t as easily as they
could say African American Leaders. On a side note, there is no problem with
having role models from different cultures I just felt that this was a gap in
the education system that could be filled with just some awareness. This is
where Platform Latino was cultivated. It’s my motivation to bring Latino
Leaders to the mainstream and have their names be recognized as much as the
Martin Luther King Jr.’s and the Malcolm X’s.
