    Episode 125: The Courage to be Yourself

    Episode 125: The Courage to be Yourself

    Helen Keller, “to keep our faces towards change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate, is strength undefeatable.”

    Why is it so hard to be ourselves?

    Big T Truth vs. little t truth

    When you let your ego drive, you give up your power

    Giving yourself the courage to be yourself.

    You can not buy peace of mind, it needs to be earned.

    Truth, is infinitely powerful

    little t truth is EGO

    Easing
    God
    Out

    little t truth is based in fear

    Episode 123: Is Your Resume Speaking the Right Language?

    Episode 123: Is Your Resume Speaking the Right Language?

    The Language of the Agents and the Casting Director is spoken in: 
    Your Resume
    Your Pictures
    Have a good follow-up, how, when and what you say in your follow-up.
    Your Demo Reel, how it’s edited, where is shown, what you put on it. 
    Website— always put your direct contact info, even if you have an agent.

    The outline of a resume: If you put so much stuff on it that it’s hard to read, it’s going to get deleted or discarded and you don’t want that!

    Episode 122: Interview w/ CD Mary Egan-Callahan

    How does the process work?
    Ad agency hires the director
    They will send scripts, usage, when it’s shooting, the boards, and conflicts
    CD sends them out to agents-- to their favorite agents (about 10).
    Agents send a list with pictures and CDs send back a list of who they want to see/ self-tape
    CDs send the auditions to the ad agency and the director
    Ad agency and directors send back a list of callbacks
    The client decides who gets the role

    Episode 120: Limiting Beliefs and Empowering Questions

    We are each the product of our own belief system
