The Time for Change is Now

* Bookmark and Share

I just read this inspiring blog post by David Brownstein, a career coach for film industry folks (including actors) in Los Angeles, and I thought I would post the link as well as the comment I left on the blog itself. First, my comment:

“Hi, David- so very glad to have found this blog! I am trying to engender the same kind of spirit with actors here in NYC. To supplement my acting career, I started a career coaching service for actors that focuses on empowering them to create the kind of career they want, rather than stepping into a mold prescribed for them. There is some sort of strange mentality that you have to starve and struggle to call yourself a true artist, putting up with the tantrums of your peers and, worse, those you look up to. Focusing on what you can do as a business owner gives an actor ownership over their vessel and the seas that they navigate. - Erin Cronican“

I strongly believe that you choose the kind of life you live. You create your reality, and in doing so you get to determine what your days look like, your weeks, your months, your years. Believe that you deserve to have the life you desire, and surround yourself with folks who have the same value system - I think that you will find yourself amazingly fulfilled and better equipped to handle the disappointments that come with this business.

And now, click here to read the blog post.

Erin Cronican's career as a professional actor and career coach has spanned the last 25 years in New York City, Los Angeles and San Diego. She has appeared in major feature films and on television, and has done national tours of plays and musicals. She has worked in the advertising & marketing departments of major corporations, film production companies, theater magazines, and non-profit acting organizations. To learn more, check out
