#145 - Mindset And Rejection - My Talk At Brighton Hall School
This episode, I'm joined by a room of child actors and their parents at the Brighton Talks: Seminars for Young Performers. I know that social media and talking to other parents in the waiting room can make it seem like everyone else has it all together, but it's not true! Listen to this Q&A, where I explain how to remain positive and realistic about your child's career when they're facing competition and rejection.
#144 - Stop What You're Doing And Focus Like A Boss
I know what it's like being a creative, our minds are 50 different places all at once. Last week's episode was all about how to start, now it's time to talk about how to stay focused. In this episode, I give you my tips on how to keep your head down and get the thing DONE!
#143 - For All New Actors: Here Is How To Get Started!
The more time you sit on the idea of wanting to start instead of taking action, the harder it gets! Think of this episode as your blueprint for this business. It can get so frustrating scrolling through tons of google articles just looking for some SOLID advice on this industry and how to get started. That's what this podcast is all about; I want you to have somewhere to go and learn from someone you trust who KNOWS this business.
This Helped Me Start my Career
Thank you so much Dana! I’m an up-and-coming child actress, and I wouldn’t be anywhere without this. This encouraged me to talk to my parents about getting serious in acting, and I now have a meeting with an agent this week, three feature film auditions, and a budding relationship with a prestigious Disney Channel casting director. I’m so grateful and I’ve never been happier!
I’m hooked. Subscribed after the first episode.
I was immediately addicted to your podcast after only one episode! I learned so much and it motivates me so much. Please continue! I beg you! Make more episodes! One question I do have is how to best read a script to prep for a character not only to portray but to add to the story being told. Thank you for this beautiful podcast!
Make more episodes!?😊 I love this podcast. So helpful I know that I can do this now. The positive energy is awesome 👏🏿. Thank you so much ☺️!
