A couple of months ago the incredible acting teacher, To Be Or Not To Act's Jo Kelly asked me to come on her IG Live to tell her students how to find managers and agents and the conversation that unfolded was sooooo juicy I simply had to make it into an episode of the podcast.
If you're an actor who needs representation this episode is a no-brainer: LISTEN. NOW.
After helping 542 actors sign with the right reps, I can’t wait to tell you all about why my rebellious, new approach to make agents want you actually works.
If you're not an actor, this convo has a lot to teach you, too: I teach the exact mindset you need to really put YOURSELF out there and to say what you really want.
Jo is the perfect Oprah to my Deepak because she understands what it means to put yourself out there and she doesn't settle for fluff answers... – she grills me on why and how I’ve learned:
A target list is the worst strategy you can use to find the right match Agents aren’t worried about your credits half as much as you are Your reel is a giant waste of time and money Referrals are dangerous!!! – and a big, gross energy suck Diversity matters (amen and hallelujah!), but it’s not a closed-door if your type isn’t in high demand I promise that you can apply what we talk about in this episode to getting what you want in any career.
P.S. If you’ve already watched my free training - Make Agents Want You - this conversation will take you backstage on how it all came to be (and I’ll share the latest stats on how my students are doing reaching out to reps RIGHT NOW).
