Actors have to be vulnerable and express their stories with a deep and open commitment. But sometimes, artists forget the other side of the business, which is just as important once you have the skill set as an actor.
You are the entrepreneur of your own success as an actor; your business savvy will help you get excellent representation and which will, in turn, close the deal for many acting jobs.
You are the product you are selling, so remember to:
- Be bold
- Be courteously aggressive
- Ask for what you want
- Research which agency would be best for you (not the other way around)
- Make sure your sales package is pristine! Your picture resume reel has to be stellar!
Then and only then will you further your career.
