I am moving to LA soon. How do I hit the ground running?
Great questions and ones I wish I had the answers to at the beginning of my career.
As an actor, YOU ARE AN ENTREPRENEUR.
And one of the hardest parts of being an entrepreneur is…
…KNOWING THE ORDER IN WHICH TO PROCEED.
You know what you want.
You even have a pretty good idea how to get there.
But your brain is bogged down with WHAT TO DO FIRST??!
So instead of being productive, you take a nap.
WE GET IT.
So, where DO you start?
STEP #1: Check Your Mindset (Click HERE for more TIPS on THE BUSINESS OF ACTING.)
Rome wasn’t built in a day. Stop getting overwhelmed with what to do, and just start doing something!
Do you have solid, professional, high-quality headshots? If not, this is your first order of business.
STEP #3: Check Your Reel (Click HERE for more REEL TIPS.)
Do you have a tight 30 to 90 second reel that you’re proud of? If not, get ‘er done before you even start thinking about auditioning professionally.
STEP #4: Get In A Good Acting Class (Click HERE for TIPS from an L.A. ACTING TEACHER.)
The right class builds community, knowledge, and confidence.
STEP #5: Live In The Right Place (Click HERE for a FREE WHERE DO I LIVE IN L.A. VIDEO.)
If your drive to Hollywood is an hour and you HATE being stuck in your car, you’re going to find reasons to not come here. If your roommates drive you crazy or if the space you inhabit is depressing, you won’t be productive. Set yourself up to succeed!
YOU GOT THIS!!
