Business Sessions: "Your Through-Line"
Your through-line is the invisible string that ties your story and journey together. In this class, we will use it to personalize your marketing. We will dive deep to find out more about how people perceive you, and use that to get a clearer focus on your career. On the first day we will go through many exercises to find your three strongest descriptive words, and we will see how we can use those words as a platform to simplify your marketing materials (Including your head shots, one sheets, social media, website, and business cards). We will discuss a list of tools and resources that you may benefit from as an actor, and how to stay connected to the local market around you.
On the second day, we will focus on your short term & long term goals as an actor, and write out a "Mission Statement" for your career, We will break them down into actionable pieces, and make sure you feel like you in line with your unique journey. I will pass out daily, weekly, and monthly goals for you to stay on track after the class is over. There will be fun exercises to shake up any feelings of being "stuck", and to help push your momentum forward.
This class is a hybrid of all the tools that I use in my personal career that I believe has helped me. It is for hard workers only, and people who want to dive deep and learn about themselves. I do not suggest the class to anyone who is not willing to do the work. This will be a jam packed session so please be prepared, and come to the first day of class with the material requested. Those will be sent in an email when you sign up for the class. Looking forward to sharing the space with you!
