    TPPP 014: TRUSTING THAT YOU ARE ENOUGH W/ TATIANA ALVAREZ

    Trusting that you are enough is one of the hardest things an actor can do. Young actress, Tatiana Alvarez recently took a big leap, trusted herself when she was really tempted to try and do the same thing everyone else was doing, and it totally paid off. 

    In this episode learn how to make your best impact in an audition by...

    digging in and really discovering what YOU do best

    celebrating the specifics that cause you to truly shine

    dropping the need to compare yourself to other auditioners

    showing them what you can do, instead of showing them what you can't do

    and 

    being brave enough to know that your only job in an audition is to give them YOUR best and tell a story, you have no control over whether or not you book the gig.

Nancy Showalter ,

Love this podcast!

Listened to the Marla Diann interview Knowing What You Are Worth and Getting It. It was great. And one thing Marla said really resonated with me was that we get paid for our purpose and not our time. Love that. Thanks, Molly and Marla!
