In response to the question of what motivated him to start his career as a actor, Raw leiba states, “Everything from quitting my job in radio to receiving advice from both Henry Winkler and Robert Dinero to winning a TV stuntman reality show called Help Wanted, which aired on the TLC network and “realizing that if I put in the effort, I could be pretty good in this industry and vowing to myself that I will always be the hardest-working person in the room. You might be better than me but you will not outwork me”
While interviewing Raw Leiba he reminisced about his days as an athlete and one of his favorite quotes borrowed from his father “ there is no reason to go around tooting your own horn if your car is already loud.” It means that when you perform well, people already know who you are and you don’t have to tell them” It’s this type of motivating thought that makes Raw Leiba what he is today.
