This is a man who Loves his work …

A Los Angeles performer who pretends to be a robot on the street earns up to $1,000 a day

You might not think much of street entertainers in your town or city, but after reading this article it definitely gave me a different take on their …talent. According to one published report on Business Insider…

Every morning, Daniel Moss paints his face gold and dons his gold pants, shoes, and jacket to transform into the Gold Man, a robot performer who can be found on the streets of Los Angeles with an open treasure box nearby for cash tips

He’s been at it for 33 years

It’s hard work,” he tells Marketplace.

A typical day lasts six to eight hours. It’s filled with performances, which he tag-teams with his performing partner, Automatic the Silver Robot

“I could go out there and make 40 or 50 bucks. It doesn’t bother me,” Moss tells Marketplace. “Because you gotta figure, you went out there with nothing.”

It’s not all about the money for Moss.

“What I like about it is making people smile, happy, and enjoy their day,” he tells Marketplace. “I’m gonna do it, I guess, ’til I’m 99 years old.”

Talk about dedication to your craft.
