I recently had an opportunity to speak with Bec Chandler, Virginia’s blessed, handsome & enterprising gentleman.
By: Joshua Conner
Bec Chandler is an: actor, model, photographer, & health consultant-advocare supplement distributor based in Richmond, Virginia. Chandler inspires me personally & professionally. Personally, I am inspired by Chandler’s faith, style, physique & passion. Professionally, I am inspired by his work ethic & creativity.
What is a day in the life of Chandler like?
“Oh, it varies, almost every single day, on a normal day: I get up in the morning, have breakfast, get on the internet and do some social networking. After that, I’ll probably hit the gym, get my workout in, then I’m constantly working on booking my next gigs. If I actually have jobs that I have landed, it depends on where I am at. Many times, I’m up at 2 or 3 in the morning, and I’m on the road at 4, so I can make a call time at 6 am, then I work all day and come home. Like right now, I just left Atlanta today, so I’ve been on the road for about 8 hours. That’s just industry life, you’ve got to go where the work is. Especially, if you don’t live in a major city, where there’s enough work to keep you busy. So, since I’m based out of Richmond, Virginia, I travel the east coast a good bit, so I’m on the road a lot,” said Chandler.
What would be the title of Chandler’s life story & who would play him in a movie?
“Well, that’s a good question, never give up would be the title and, oh man, you know what, I think I would like Matthew McConaughey to play me,” said Chandler.
What was Chandler’s most memorable year?
“My most memorable year, you know what, I have to say this year is my most memorable year, to date. 2019, was a good year, I got engaged, I got to do a family trip with all my nieces & nephews, and I started the year, very well for my career, so far this year has been the best yet,” said Chandler.
If Chandler’s mantra was a hashtag it would be, be childlike minded.
“I think that people constantly get caught up in the rat race of life, that we forget to see the world through what God, put as a child’s eye. We complicate things, instead of simplifying things. I think we forget to look at trees, and see the beauty of the sky, you know look at it through a child’s eyes. It’s simple for a child, they are: happy, pure and kind and I think we forget that too often,” said Chandler.
Although Chandler reads the bible for inspiration, he also loves an Abraham Lincoln quote.
“You know to be honest with you, anything in bible, there is not a certain one that stands out more than the others. They are all important and we should abide by all of them. Anything in the bible is good, but I do love the quote, “Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle,” by Abraham Lincoln,” said Chandler.
Chandler also is a photographer, what is one sentence would he like people to use to describe his photography?
“One sentence, I would like people to use to explain my photography, I’m going to hope people say it’s unique with a cinematic feel,” said Chandler.
How does Chandler want to be remembered?
“I want to be remembered as hardworking, kind, and as a genuine, but legitimate guy. I want people to look back and be like he was a legitimate, good guy, he was kind, caring and he went out of his way to help people,” said Chandler.
Extra content: I asked Bec Chandler, if he could throw a dinner party with anyone died or alive who would he invite & we end up in one hundred acre woods. Follow me on Facebook and Instagram @MrJoshConner to see how we ended up there.
