They Laughed When I Quit My Day Job, But When They Saw Me On TV…

“You’ll never make it” she said, “You haven’t even been in anything…”

She was right.

My boss at my computer job was surprised when I told her I was leaving the stable, steady 9-to-5 job to be an actor.

What the hell was I doing?

Didn’t I know that most people never even get ONE paid acting gig?

But here I was quitting the “survival day job”.

To be an actor.

The thing is, I had learned a secret that she didn’t know about.

As you read this entire post, maybe you’ll find the courage to take the leap too…

 

How I Finally Got An Agent, Quit My Day Job, and Made A Living Acting On TV… And How You Can Too.

BonesRodriguezSuit277

FROM: Bones Rodriguez- Actor, Author, Entrepreneur Born and Raised In New York City

Yes, you HAVE seen me on TV, and I do a ton of work all around the New York Improv and Theatre scene… Here’s my story (you’re going to want to share this)
Dear Fellow Talented Actor,

You don’t realize this now, but in the next few minutes you’re going to re-think everything our teachers taught us about “The Acting Thing”…

If you’re anything like me, you got out of school ready to be a successful actor, and use your talents performing for eager audiences on TV, Film, or in the Theater.

But I found out quickly that my teachers forgot one very important thing:

THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF ACTORS:

Those who bring the check to the table, and
Those Who GET THE CHECK In The Mail…

Which do YOU Want To Be?

Do you remember what it felt like to dream about your life and what “being an actor” meant to you? I remember, and I thought I was ready.

And Then…

REAL “ACTOR LIFE” HIT!

Everyone says that the Acting Business is tough, and that your chances of making a full-time income are slim because in real life, you need to be to make money while you build your dream career.

And that’s why…

95% of Actors
Quit The Business
Before They Turn 30 Years Old.

Because unless mommy and daddy are paying the bills, you’ll get a job, and by the time you’re done working, you’re too tired to focus on your career.

That’s where I was: broke, frustrated, and doing shows for my friends and family.

The SAME friends and family.

Sound familiar?

“It Wasn’t Supposed To
Be Like THIS Was It?”

When did our teachers tell us that we would be doing all these things that have NOTHING to do with acting?

  • Waiting tables,
  • Temping at an office
  • Living with 5 roommates just to pay bills
  • Begging your parents for money
  • Never getting auditions because you’re too busy working!

We were taught that if we just continued to hone our craft and get “good”, then we would “be discovered” by someone right? This is the idea that’s shared everywhere.

But guess what- that’s not true! It’s Wrong!

In the real world, you need to support yourself while you hone your craft, and learn how to live as an actor- to be an actor.

And most people never make it.

If you’re like I was, you’re dreaming about sharing your gift, and getting the accolades you deserve. You’re working with some amazingly creative people, and doing work that inspires, fulfills, and entertains you and others.

Now imagine your fantasy financial situation- I’ll bet it is a comfortable life. I’ll bet you have a feeling of freedom – something you don’t have now.
I’ll Bet Your Fantasy Acting Life Does NOT Include:

  • Begging some boss for time off
  • Hoping someone will switch shifts with you
  • Worrying about health insurance
  • Wishing you’d get fired, but terrified of it too…

But isn’t This What Our Teachers Taught Us?

“Take classes, get BACKSTAGE every week, and get a job waiting tables or bartending. If that doesn’t work in a short while, get more schooling, meet the right people, and maybe that’ll work. If not- teach acting!”

Don’t get me wrong, the teachers that have taught us how to ACT are great-

They Taught Us “How To ACT”, But Not

How To BE A SUCCESSFUL ACTOR

And there’s a big difference.

My friends who were far more talented than me, and had degrees from acting schools were starting to quit.

They were getting older, and they started saying things like “I just can’t stand being broke anymore”

I had a desk job myself, and I was about to throw in the towel too.

“I Was Broke, Frustrated, and Going Nowhere In My Acting Career…

-Then $20 Changed My Whole Life!”

You see about 11 years ago, I found a terrible little website that told me I could “make money online”.

It cost $1000, and I didn’t have it at the time, but I put it on a credit card because I wanted to change the path I was on.

There’s an old saying that “If you keep doing what you’ve done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve gotten”.

I was willing to change what I was doing because I wanted a different path.

I paid the $1000, and opened my mind.

I learned about selling other people’s stuff from that website, and tried to do what it said, but I lost even more money.

And then more.

But I wasn’t going to give up, and I learned more with each failure.

Until one day, I made $20.

I wasn’t working at a job (in fact, I was at rehearsal), when I suddenly realized that this little website I had made selling other people’s stuff made me $20 that day.

I shared the idea with some friends, but that was just the beginning!

I figured that since I could learn to make $20 in a day, that if I kept going, I could learn to make $200 in a day.

At first I only made a little, but I kept doing it until it became simple.

Then one day I made $1200 in one day just selling other people’s stuff on my website.

That was the day I Quit My Day Job,
And I never looked back!

And Free from the Day Job, I could suddenly do ANYTHING I Wanted!

  • I wrote books!
  • I went on vacation!
  • I saved money!
  • I bought property!

BUT BEST OF ALL…

I STARTED MEETING AGENTS, GOING ON AUDITIONS, and BOOKING ACTING WORK!

Since I make money without a day job, I’ve been able to go on auditions, do shows, and shoot dozens of commercials. My IMDB is tiny, and I’ve done very little TV and film, but in my career so far…

I have managed to make almost $400,000 strictly from SAG acting work. Another $50k on stage.

I know- I can hardly believe it either.

My mom actually started telling people that I was an actor, (instead of being embarrassed) and proudly asking “Have you seen my child on TV?”

And my neighbors saw me on TV…

And they would stop me in the street “Hey! I saw you, and I told everyone that I knew you!”

You see, once I got free of spending most of my time trying to make money to live on, I could do what I ACTUALLY wanted to do:

I get to PERFORM all the time,
and not worry about the money!

Nobody asks “Are you still TRYING to be an actor?” when you’re making money!

But I knew that I wanted to share this with more actors; serious ones, committed ones, actors who understand that there is sacrifice, investment, and learning involved to know about this stuff too!

I can’t be the only one who wants to be FREE, right?

If You’re An Actor and Read This, You’ll Share It Too.

Before you read this, I want you to make me a “Honor system” promise:

If you think this is at least interesting, and if you read it to the end, you’ll give it a like and share it- no matter how you feel about it at the end.

You promise to share it if you get the slightest hint of interest.

Deal?

Ok- remember: Honor System- You will be shaming your mother if you don’t keep your promise!

If you’ve been following my 10,000 likes facebook page

or my popular blog posts,

then you already know-

I am an actor, I don’t have a day job, and I haven’t had one for over 10 years.

I’m not famous, I’m not rich, and I don’t live in Beverly Hills.

I have done very little TV and Film, my IMDB is tiny, but

I’ve made over $400,000 as an actor through commercials, and stage.

I have spent thousands and written a book and created a course on QUITTING YOUR DAY JOB so you can be free to audition, book work, and shoot whatever you want, whenever you want.

(How much is that worth to you?)

My course is called “No More Waiters: How To Build Your Acting Business WITHOUT A Day Job”:

flatecover2014PRINT

People buy it all the time, and I have great testimonials- I teach people that when you make money outside of a day job, you can do whatever you want.

That’s why I have an acting career- because when asked if I’m available, my answer is always “YES”- no boss to ask, no shift to switch, nothing- I say “YES” because I make my OWN money.

How?

I teach people a lot of ways to make money without a day job, but my favorite is to make “Online Vending Machines”.

An “Online Vending Machine” is a webpage that sells something that people buy, and then you just get website surfers to look at it- if they buy stuff, you make money.

It’s not “YOU” selling stuff, but it’s YOUR MACHINE, so you keep the money.

Make sense?

I show people how to make those.

It’s pretty damn simple.

Wanna see one? 

You’re looking at one kind.

I thought that was obvious.

Want more? Ok, let me make this even simpler.

Sometimes I use a system to sell stuff.

My own stuff, and OTHER PEOPLE’S stuff.

Huh?

Yeah- see, that’s the part that trips people up.

Most people know that OF COURSE you can sell your own stuff on a website and make money (like Ebay or Etsy), but most people don’t have their own stuff to sell-

So I teach them to make a machine that sells someone else’s stuff.

AND THEN KEEP THE MONEY.

Just like if you had a candy machine, your machine would be selling someone ELSE’s candy, but since YOU own the machine, YOU keep the money.

Make sense? Are you following?

Remember- you are going to share this post.

 

But hold on.

I’m not talking about mailing stuff out, because that takes TIME.

And I’m not talking about “buy low and sell high” because that takes MONEY.

I’m talking about after your machine is set up, ZERO time.

I’m also talking about NOT having to buy the “stuff to sell” first.

Even though I teach people to MAKE their own machines, I also show people how to just BUY A SYSTEM that works like an “online vending machine”.

It makes money FOR you when people
buy what the machine sells.

That makes sense to most people, because you can just imagine every time you have bought something from a vending machine, that the owner must have made money right?

So- it’s the same thing online. You can just have a website, and when people buy something from it (even if they buy someone else’s product), you make money.

If you’ve read this far, by now you are probably thrilled to know that I posted a FREE video for a limited time, and you can watch it here:

YouTubeWebinar2

 

This is FREE for a little while, but if you’ve reached this page at a different time, then I recommend buying it. It’s probably not more than $50, but of course, it’s up to you.

And- don’t forget your promise, that you’re going to share this post now too!

So, here’s my wrap-up question for you…

-I have LITERALLY written the book on actors making money outside of a day job.

-I have made over $400,000 from SAG payments alone, and haven’t had a day job in over 10 years.

-I am giving you advice on how to get further in your dreams.

Are you an actor?

Do you want to make money outside of your stupid day job so you can be free to do what you want?

Wouldn’t you like to make $400,000 as an actor? More?

Great! Then you probably bought my course, signed up for my webinars, and got started so you could learn all you can, right?

RIGHT?Continue

No?

Maybe you feel like you need to know more?

I have made thousands from using the system, from learning from it, and the idea it’s based on has made me day-job free for over 15 years.

What would YOU do if you didn’t have to trade time for money anymore?

I AM TELLING YOU TO LEARN TO SET UP AN ONLINE VENDING MACHINE AND NEVER HAVE TO WORK A DAY JOB AGAIN.

So- If you haven’t clicked the link by now, then you’re scared of something.

It’s probably some version of “This sounds too good to be true”, or “Maybe THEY can do it, but I couldn’t possibly”.

Maybe you’re right- but maybe you’re wrong (and you are), but there’s only one way to find out. 

Did you register your info and get started yet?

If not, then I’m sorry I couldn’t get you past your fears- I tried.

CLICK HERE, AND WATCH THE VIDEO!

Either way, I look forward to you keeping your word, keeping your promise, and sharing this post now- I mean, you don’t want to shame your mother do you?

AMAZON Just Changed the “Subscriber Game”- Again. Here’s How It Will Affect Actors

I KEEP saying it- Being an actor is DIFFERENT now.

 

And STREAMING is where it’s going.

 

You see, the networks have to rely on people knowing

when their show is, or looking it up on demand after it aired,

but STREAMING services have a different model:

 

They want SUBSCRIBERS.

 

They want CONSISTENT SALES.

 

They want to get paid when they’re sleeping, and have

a MONTHLY subscriber base to pay them.

 

And that’s what I teach people to do also.

 

But AMAZON just changed the game on everyone.

 
My friend was cast in an Amazon TV show last year, shot an entire
SEASON of episodes- she got paid of course, but if you know
about the “streaming” contracts…
well…
 
Television used to pay really well….
Streaming doesn’t…
and which way do you think it’s going in the future?
 
So she’s out looking for work again.
 
Because she gets paid ONCE… and not as well as what we used to get paid for an entire SEASON of television.
 
She has no subscribers.
 
But Amazon does have subscribers, don’t they?
 
They just UPPED their “subscriber game” too.
 
You see, I have booked ZERO tv or film this entire year-
but I’ve done shows and made videos:and gotten paid from SUBSCRIBERS.
 
I get paid from someone else’s subscriber game.
 
 
(Wanna learn how to do that? WATCH THIS HERE)
 
But now AMAZON is offering SHOWTIME and STARZ
 
They just UPPED their subscriber game.
 
So they get paid whether or not they are open.
 
Because if you subscribe to Amazon Prime, you are PAYING
a subscription, right?
 
And even if you NEVER watch it- THEY STILL GET PAID.
 
Isn’t it about time YOU started playing the “subscriber game” too?
 
Well, learn how to do this for 50% OFF right now:
 
 
 
Because they next time SHOWTIME wins an award for best
new show- they’re going to get MORE SUBSCRIBERS.
 
And the next time you audition for a new show- you’d like to have a piece
of that SUBSCRIBER Money, right?
 
Get these mastermind recordings- I am just finishing the newest class, and
you can get them for 50% off before the timer runs out.
 
Then you can have your OWN “Prime membership”,
and up your SUBSCRIBER GAME too!

Why Tobey Maguire REFUSED Spider-Man- Until This

Did you know that Tobey Maguire TURNED DOWN the offer
to audition for Spider-Man when they asked him to?
Why would he do that?
 
I’ll tell you in a minute but first: 
 
Surprise!
 
An early Christmas gift for the first 250 of you!
 
*************************
Many of you know that I wrote a health book “Half Assed Health”, and I just opened an email from my friends Joel & Josh from BioTrust Nutrition. 
 
It said that they wanted to reward the first 250 of my readers to visit the link below with a FREE 30-count bottle of their brand new breakthrough “metabolism-igniting” supplement, Metabo379™… with ZERO strings attached!
 
This means after you receive your Free bottle, NOTHING more will ever be sent to you, or charged to you, in the future.
It’s truly FREE (no autoship, no future charges – nothing).
I know, I know- I’m totally using the Tobey Maguire thing to tell you guys this, but really- Actors go to the gym, I go to the gym, and I love their stuff, so it’s relevant.
 
I was like “Ok guys, what’s the deal?” and it turns out that they just need testimonials and people to try it out. Since they knew I had the book, they figured they’d have e send it out.
 
Pretty incredible, as this is absolutely an extremely valuable, premium product from them, and I know the research behind it is pretty powerful, and completely SAFE, without stimulants.
*************************************
 
The reason I brought up Tobey Maguire is that at first,
his agent thought he was too “nerdy” and skinny
to get the part for Spider-man.
 
So, they said no…
AND THEN HIT THE GYM 
and months later, by the time the producers were closer to actually choosing the actor,
he had bulked up, burned fat, and looked a lot more like a superhero!
 
So maybe you want to try this stuff?
 
This story kinda blew my mind because I would think that they would just hire him, and then have him go to the gym and bulk up AFTERWARDS.
But it just shows that you have to be the part WHEN YOU AUDITION.
That’s why I like booking jobs where I feel like I’m “hardly acting” because I’m already LIKE the characters I like playing.
So- if you want to play super heroes- you had better hit the gym NOW!
If you want to know more about the Fat-Burner- read below:
The rest of this email is from them:
******************************You see, Metabo379™ contains a synergistic blend of natural, metabolism-igniting HERBAL ingredients that are research-backed to BOOST your metabolism nearly 300% while also speeding your rate of weight loss nearly 4Xs over.
