Just pulled this little tidbit from the “Showbiz How-To” newsletter:
Study The Business
It's never enough to be in love with the idea of becoming a professional actor - you have to know how to do it. This is almost always a matter of understanding how the business actually works - and what opportunities actually exist ... for you. Many actors focus on their thinking on how things SHOULD work - and ignore how things DO work.
Build Business Skills
Advertising, promotion, sales, budget management, networking and a host of other 'business' related skills are important to your acting business. If you expect other people to do these things for you - your business is going to flounder.
That being said- this is a reminder that TONIGHT is the Bite-Size Business Soiree in NYC- email me if you would like to attend.
Hope to see you there!
