How many of you struggle with knowing your type?
I recently have worked with a couple of clients who had the goal of getting new representation and before we got into repackaging their marketing materials, creating a target list, and all the necessary prep work that goes into it when I asked what their type casting was – I began to see a theme.
Many actors don’t know what their type is and they leave it up to the industry to decide it for them.
So before we could jump into more of the administrative tasks needed to seek new representation we had […]
I can’t believe it’s December and we are nearing the end of the year!
I hope you have met a goal, two or three, exceeded your expectations, or have at least learned a lot to propel you into the new year.
I thought to end this year by bringing you a treat. One that my husband, I and father-in-law have a hard time not devouring as soon as they are made, but we are nice and save some for my mother-in-law too. Seriously though when they come for the holidays and I make these they are gone within 48 hours.
I did mention […]
To give or not to give? That is the question.
From person to person in the industry, the opinion will vary depending on advice they have been given, their own experience of giving, gratitude and/or receiving gifts themselves during the holidays.
A big no-no mentioned by casting directors and agents is giving them homemade goodies. If they don’t have a super close relationship with you where you’ve invited each other over for dinner before – it leaves them wondering if your hands were clean or if the cat jumped up on the counter top and put his paws all over the cooking […]
I’m not gonna lie, the art of being patient or have patience in the midst of rejection after rejection in all facets of your career – year after year is not easy.
Recently, I upleveled in a BIG way in my acting career.
After finally booking my first co-star role after moving to LA – five years later, I have now booked my first Guest Star role and it ended of being Top of Show! That’s a big win for us actors right?
Now here’s the reality…guess how long it took me to book a Guest Star role since I moved to LA? […]
Finding your Flow.
The time had come…I decided to return to acting.
I have to say it’s been fun getting back in the game and in the swing of things again.
I feel like more of myself again!
Am I fully energized, strong and ready to slay any and all casting opportunities? Honestly, I’m still making tweaks. While also finding the time to fit in acupuncture, chiro and physical therapy appointments around auditions. All to enhance my health to a state of true strength, vibrancy, feeling free in my body, and just downright feeling good.
I pause to ask…how are you taking care of yourself […]
I have a confession to make.
Recently during my time off…I got booked. Yep, I got cast. Yes, I was on set.
How did that happen while I was not auditioning?
I’ll start by saying, “Never count out any of your auditions.” So check it, it was early this year in January when I had the casting opportunity. I read for four different co-star roles for the upcoming season. They said shooting would take place anywhere between March-August.
There are those auditions that you just know you did a slam dunk, you went all in, and it just felt “right” -aka – lived and not […]
Be a good friend to yourself.
As actors, we usually think – all things acting first – when it comes to “making it”.
However, to become a serious working actor who maintains a successful career – it’s so much more than casting opportunities, learning our sides, getting booked, acting class, being on set, walking red carpets, winning awards, and rising up in our career.
The real magic happens in our overall health – our well-being, state of being, and state of mind. Which will always rule out any and everything acting related if we continuously put them on the back burner running on […]
Yep, recently I decided to Hit Pause on Acting.
Crazy I know. But is it really?
Since I am a teacher of aligning your life so you can live and book in flow, I thought it was important to share with you how I have had to put my own advice to you into practice. If you’ve read my E-flowbook, you know what I’m talking about.
So what did that look like for me?
It was high time I put some time, attention, and focus on the area of health in my life – as it is THE ONE that’s King, […]
Don’t go to get booked. Go to book the room.
It’s what we commonly hear as actors if you’ve been in the game for a minute, have taken an on-camera class, or have been on many auditions, but you haven’t booked anything yet – you’re getting frustrated and a mentor, actor friend or teacher reminds you of this…oh so golden piece of advice.
If you are new to the acting scene and you’re now learning this for the first time, keep reading and once you begin to audition – own it. And watch your career and confidence unfold because of it.
If you […]
Let’s talk side jobs.
The one that’s a necessity to have while pursuing your acting career.
Are you in need of one, another one, or want to be done with the one you got?
Hopefully, you feel lucky to have the one you got because you actually like what you do, it’s flexible, and the boss is oh so supportive of you and your career.
I’ve experienced all of the above.
Since moving to LA, throughout my acting career – I’ve counted having at least 23 side jobs if not more. And most of the time, I was juggling 3 at a time just […]
