    From Miami to Munich, today's guest Sidonie Smith is a musical theatre actress, violinist, and a damn good motivational speaker who hopped on a call all the way from Berlin. She shares how she went from shy orchestra player to making her own path and following her own "golden doors" of opportunity that led her to where she is now. I think we all need a little Sidonie in our life right now.

Love this podcast!

This podcast has been such an amazing resource for me during the pandemic in terms of helping me stay motivated, giving me ideas for how to remain productive, and making me feel okay when I’m neither productive or motivated! I so appreciate anything that humanizes the experience of pursuing an acting career and shines light on the nitty-gritty parts that no one teaches you about. Thank you, Sam, for being of service with your generous spirit! ✨

My first review ever goes to this amazing podcast!

Took me a bit to find out how to leave a review here but this podcast it’s worth it!
Sam is an incredible host, she always asks the right questions and she stays true to herself. I have been listening to this podcast since I moved to nyc and it pretty much taught me almost everything I know. There are a couple podcasts out there about the industry, yes. But sam is the only one that gets to the point. It shows you the business part of being an actor/actress but also shows you the human part of it. It reminds you we are all humans, and sometimes in this industry we tend to forget we are so much more than just our career. And it’s ok to be tired and it’s ok to have a survival job to pay rent. It doesn’t make you less of an actor/actress. I needed to hear that.
Anyway, you’re gonna love it!
