The Best Jobs for Actors….Hint: It’s NOT Waiting Tables.

Everyone knows that the acting business is tough, and most people quit before they ever make any real money. It’s like we’re all racing to make money before we have to get “real” jobs and give up.

So what do we ALL do?

  • Waiting tables
  • Walking Dogs
  • Watching Babies
  • Personal Training
  • Uber, Temping, Substitute Teaching, etc, etc, etc

HOWEVER

If “Every Actor” does these,
and 98% of people Quit Acting,
Then These MUST be wrong 

Instead, I found a SHORTCUT TO $3,600 per Month:

I read a book that changed the way I thought about making money in general, but it also taught me a TON about acting, and the business of getting acting gigs.

Not the “career” of acting, but the BUSINESS.

nbc

In the book, he talks about how to build your acting business without a day job.

In other words, there are NO jobs that are good for actors,
and instead to make money WITHOUT a job at all.

Huh?

It was new information to me because I was taught to keep getting “better” as an actor, and I’d be “discovered” if I kept doing free shows and working some “survival job” at night.

But that advice came from TEACHERS who were NOT professional actors.

They had day jobs.

If they had been professionals, they would teach something different, like how to actually GET WORK instead of just more and more “craft”.

So, when you think about what kind of “jobs” are good for actors, I learned that NO job is good because you have to trade your time for it.

So I recommend you CLICK HERE RIGHT NOW AND WATCH THE VIDEO let it actually CHANGE what you think you know!

Because you’re not a douche, you want to help other actors too.

P.S.- There will be doubters and skeptical wanna-bes who will comment without even reading this post, or reading the book. They are failures. Choose who you listen to wisely.

NBC SCENE SHOWCASE

The NY Scene Showcase casting call for actors is OPEN. See details below.

**SUBMIT HERE: actorscall.com/f983d**

As part of its ongoing commitment to diversity, NBCUniversal will produce a live performance Scene Showcase in June in Los Angeles, and September in New York City. The showcase intends to feature actors, writers and directors of diverse backgrounds, including LGBTQ actors and Performers with Disabilities. The one-day live theatrical showcase is performed for executives, producers, casting directors, and other industry professionals.

**The NY Scene Showcase casting call for actors is OPEN. See details below.**

**The LA Scene Showcase casting call for actors is CLOSED**

**2016 Scene Showcase scene submissions from writers are CLOSED**

 

SELECTION PROCESS

Stage One:  Script Selection (Writers)

Once a year, we put out an open call for scripts to be performed live in front of an audience.
We accept two types of scripts: comedy scenes and dramatic monologues.

COMEDY SCENE REQUIREMENTS:

  • There should be no more than two actors in the scene (and no less).
  • The scene should be five minutes long (4-6 pages, standard script format).
  • The piece should be stand-alone; it shouldn’t feel like an excerpt from a longer piece, and should have a clear beginning, middle, and end.
  • Given that these scenes are meant to be performed on a stage in front of a live audience, special effects should be kept to a minimum.

DRAMATIC MONOLOGUE REQUIREMENTS:

  • As it is a monologue, it should be written for ONE actor.
  • The monologue should be 1-2 minutes long.
  • The piece should be able to stand alone.

 

Stage Two: Casting (Actors)

**The NY Scene Showcase casting call is OPEN.**

Actors should prepare a self-taped audition, reading part of one of our selected scenes. Instructions to submit are below:

SEEKING: [ETHNICALLY DIVERSE & MULTI-CULTURAL MEN & WOMEN] can portray 18 – 55 yrs old,  specifically actors with strong comedic ability and timing. Submit All Ethnicities. MUST BE LOCAL NY RESIDENT ONLY & AVAILABLE FOR MANDATORY AUG & SEPT REHEARSALS

DEADLINE: MAY 30, 2016 at 6pm ET

This is a REQUEST TO SELF TAPE your Audition. Sides available at Sides Express and Showfax under NY PLAYS as: ‘NBC SCENE SHOWCASE 2016’ SIDES CODE: N3263

Review ALL ten (10) scene options provided, then Choose & Prepare ONLY one (1) of the roles.

**SUBMIT HERE: actorscall.com/f983d**

NOTE: Any gender, age or relationship can be modified for audition purposes, to suit you, as long as the humor is still maintained. i.e.: If the scene is currently written as a male character, you can choose to portray it as a female. If written as a husband, you can portray it as a wife, straight to gay, 20s to 50s, etc.

Please note: Registration on actorsaccess.com is free, but Actors Access charges $3 to upload a video.

 

Stage Three: Rehearsals (Directors & Actors)

Once we cast actors, we will hire directors.  They are typically selected from our pool of directors from the NBCUniversal Emerging Director Programfinalists and award-winning NBCUniversal Short Film Festival directors.

Stage Four: Showcase

A live theatrical showcase will take place once in Los Angeles, and once in New York.  These two showcases have separate casts and directors.

These Great Coaches Were Broke- Here’s How They “Broke Through” To Prosperity!

All it took was one simple tweak from our PROJECT TITAN TRAINING.

Not even a tweak, it was an entire profit center around an idea that 9 out of our 10 coaches hadn’t considered.

Coaching is the #2 growth industry in the country, and since we’ve been moving more and more towards a service economy, many, many people are becoming coaches.

But when you really want to help someone, sometimes it can be hard to make money doing it…

What Kinds of Coaches Use PROJECT TITAN?

Life coaches

Spiritual Coaches

Academic Coaches

Fitness coaches

Financial Coaches

Career coaches

Emotional coaches

Marriage Coaches

There are literally hundreds of kinds of coaches sprouting up all over, and many of them have some great expertise in their niche.

But they’re broke.

When they get clients, they give them a lot of value, and help change people’s lives, which is a wonderful feeling, and what we’re supposed to be doing with our lives.

So what’s the catch?

Clients.

2013

Finding clients.

Finding clients who pay.

Finding Clients who pay money.

Finding clients who pay money and do the work

Finding clients who pay money, do the work, and tell their friends so that you don’t have to go out and find clients again!

The thing is, that the work in being a coach is two-fold…

______________________________________________

It’s not doing the job of helping people,

it’s GETTING the job of helping people.

Being a coach is more than just being someone who can help people’s lives dramatically in your field.

It’s having a business

It’s being in business for yourself

And most coaches haven’t gone to business school.

Even if they have, the business they teach isn’t about owning your own “solopreneur” business.

This is quite a revelation to many coaches, and when they find out and pursue the business side of coaching, they find that there are a lot of things they need:

Websites, marketing, systems, meetings, email lists, promotional materials, etc, etc, etc.

And even the coaches who successfully do all of this, the ones who get clients, change lives, and make money are STILL missing this one important profit center idea.

Let me repeat that:

EVEN THE SUCCESSFUL COACHES

ARE MISSING THIS ONE PROFIT-CENTER IDEA.

So, if you’d like a better game plan for your business, a way to have all of these systems and marketing automated and created for you in an easy-to-use format- As well as the ONE blind-spot profit-center idea that most coaches miss,

2 Year-Old Autistic Boy Reminds Everyone To Love Actresses

This little guy is autistic and doesn’t smile at people other than his parents.

But then he met a hard-working, dedicated actress who routinely makes dreams come true… well, you’ll see:

Let this video remind you that not all actors are selfish, star-seeking, wanna-be hollywood celebrities trying to increase their IMDB ratings or “get discovered”.

Some of us like this Snow White actress may never be on any hit show or win any Oscars, but for this little boy and his forever-grateful parents…

She is a MIRACLE. 

Since I learned to make money online, quit my day job and become a full-time actor, I have done something like five-hundred improv shows for kids.

I wish I did more.

I once did a gig like this at Great Adventure many years ago, playing a sort of zombie-fied Austin Powers knock-off (I told you, it was a while ago) named “Willie Killegan”.

We did an improv show a few times a day, and then went back to our green room. Silly job, didn’t pay well, but I got to meet Andrew.

Andrew was a kid in a pretty elaborate wheelchair with all sorts of tubes all over it. He couldn’t speak, was drooling all over his food-stained shirt, and I could tell his parents were just… tired.

They had brought his sister to the park, along with a few of her friends, and I could tell they were having a hard time… for years.

For one reason or another, the boy got wildly excited when I came near him, shaking his arms and mumbling something over and over.

I could tell that his parents were worried he was going to scare me or something (a reaction that they probably got a lot), but there was a sign in the green room by the door where we took our breaks.

It said: “Remember that this may be someone’s favorite day of their life”

I try to remember that outside of the park too.

“Hey baby, ya lookin’ like the cat’s meowwww!” I said in my best Austin Powers knock-off impression.

He shook and buckled with laughter, mumbling over and over, and his parents translated what he said:

“Best friend, Best friend”

Well, I went in for a hug, and I could see that his parents motioned to stop me, but it was too late.

I gave him a big hug, and he drooled all over me, screaming and laughing so loud that it hurt my ears, and he gave me a little accidental head-butt.

“Remember Willie loves ya, baby!” I said, choking up.

His parents thanked me apologetically, and I left, walked back to the green room with tears in my eyes.

I discovered something about myself as a performer that day.

And it is so much better than trying to get someone else to discover me.

Remember that some of us are working, but for an entirely different reason than why you work.

The Snow White from the video above is even able to engage other kids as this little boy falls in love with her, and I bet this is a DAILY occurrence for her and the rest of the characters there. You can read the whole story HERE

So, to everyone of my fellow actors who have created a day like that for a kid and their parents- THANK YOU!

And if YOU’D like to thank them too- PASS THIS ON:

Warning: This Video Is Making People Quit Their Job

This is some powerfully potent poetry.

People are passing this around the web, SHARING it because it’s an example of someone doing what they WANT in life, and inspiring YOU to do the same.

Will YOU have the courage to do what you want in life instead of letting someone ELSE tell you what to do?
