I have to admit, I was floored
And she likes to call with good news.
But it’s been OVER A YEAR since I booked anything,
– I know I look tired these days, my eyes have these bags
– I’m less fit as I used to be (eating ice cream like er’y night!)
“You booked it!”
I said “[company name]?”
She said “YES! NATIONAL, maybe a print component, cable, etc”
It was only then that I allowed myself to be happy.
(Do you know what I mean?)
It was only then that I allowed my face to indicate to my wife that it was good news.
Before that moment, I didn’t want to disappoint her AGAIN.
I had stopped telling her when I thought I did a good job at the callback.
And even though I know it’s a numbers game,
And even though I know that I have a great callback ratio
It just so happens that THIS TIME…
They wanted a guy who was a little older.
They wanted a guy who looks a little tired
They wanted a guy who was a little less fit
They wanted a guy whose hairline was receding and had a shiny bald spot.
They might use more types more often, but if you keep
You have to play the RIGHT numbers.
I have been playing the commercial numbers for years.
and I have booked dozens of commercials, and made hundreds of thousands
then I have to start playing the TV numbers.
I have to start playing the TV AUDITION numbers, which right now
So- two things:
1- If you stick in there and play the numbers, you can win.
2- It’s easier to play the numbers without a day job,
Everyone knows that the acting business is tough, and most people quit before they ever make any real money. These 5 pictures may make you feel better, and there’s even one guy’s solution to how he beat the system:
But it doesn’t have to be like that-
I watched a video that taught me how to make money without ever needing a job
It also taught me how to treat my acting career as a
Business, and since then I have gone full-time.
Since I was free from working a job, I met agents,
casting directors, and started going on auditions
What would YOU do with your acting career if you
didn’t have to work a day job?

“How To Build Your Acting Business WITHOUT A Day Job”
I have several friends who are the hippiest of the hippies, and I love you all.
I have been having several conversations with you lately, being as patient and understanding as I can because you’re the good people.
The ones who want to bring the world better.
You want the world to do better and to be better.
And I have been keeping a lot of my truth from you in order to best see things from your perspective.
So this letter is to bring you my perspective; or at least, a different perspective.
