Robby Fields chatted with #Powerjournalist Markos Papadatos about real estate, and repping Missouri in the 2024 Mister USA pageant.

James Dean once said: “Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.” This quote applies to Robby Fields, who is a Mister USA contestant that is representing the state of Missouri.

Repping Missouri in Mister USA

On being a part of the 2024 Mister USA competition, he said, “It feels exhilarating to be a part of it. I was so excited when I found out I was going to be Mister Missouri.”

“I am extremely excited to be representing Missouri,” he exclaimed. “I think that Missouri is often overlooked when people think of American beauty, but it really has a lot!”

“The Midwest is where my values were instilled and I have such a warm place in my heart for Missouri,” he said. “Since my dad was born and raised there, I visited all the time and still do to see family. I also spent a large chunk of my college career at Mizzou (Go Tigers!). I feel honored to be representing them,” he acknowledged.

Mister USA is an American beauty pageant, which is held annually, and the winner goes on to represent the United States in the Mister Universe competition. It is a celebration of culture, diversity, beauty, intelligence and empowerment. They believe in the power of young leaders to make a difference in the world. It is not solely about outer beauty; it recognizes the inner beauty and intelligence of their contestants.

The pageant will be held on August 11, 2024 in Hollywood. The winner of Mister USA will subsequently represent USA at “Mister Universe” in mid-September.

Daily motivations

On his daily motivations, Field shared, “Nothing motivates me like seeing my clients happy! I’m a Realtor by trade and nothing is more energizing to me than getting to see my clients and help them find the home that was meant for them.”

“Aside from working, I’m also extremely motivated by the gym,” he admitted. “I have been sober for a year and a half and the gym has become vital to me as a place to ground myself and start the day off right. It helps keep me clear headed and ready to take on whatever challenges lie ahead.”

Future plans

Regarding his future plans, he remarked, “My plans for the future include expanding and growing the real estate team that my partner and I have founded, the glasses + fields group. We have a combined 15 years experience in the field and are looking to help as many people as possible! We are both motivated by seeing our clients fulfilled and knowing that we provide an unmatched level of care and protection for our clients throughout the entire home buying and selling process.”

“In the next five years, I’m hoping to have one of the top real estate teams in Los Angeles,” he said. “I am also hoping to be mentoring other realtors and showing them what it takes to be a true ‘white glove’ service agent. It’s important to me to also stay focused on what grounds me which is having amazing relationships with the people I love. In five years, I’d love to be 10 years wiser and be an even better friend and confidant.”

Favorite mottos to live by

On her favorite mottos to live by, he revealed, “I’ve always lived by the motto: ‘live each day as if it were your last.’ You have to do what you want to do when you want to do it. Similarly, you have to tell the people you love that you love them as much as possible. You never know when things might change. Live in the moment!”

Success

Fields described success as “living life to the fullest.” “A successful person is well rounded, has healthy relationships with the people they care most about, has healthy boundaries with their career, and is able to do what they want when they want! When I was younger I thought success just meant money, but getting older it’s become apparent that money is not the end all be all for happiness. What’s most important is the ability to remain present in your relationships and career,” he explained.

Fields’ closing thoughts on Mister USA

For his supporters, he expressed, “I think I would say to be open to it! I think pageants can often come with a stigma that it’s just about looks. I really think that Mister USA is pushing outside of that box by showcasing men that have a lot to offer beyond their looks! I hope that people get to see a different side of pageantry through Mister USA!”
