"Thank you Matt for being there to give me guidance and opening my eyes to how much more I can learn to be a better actress."Sofia Wylie, Actress Forget everything you think you know about the acting industry. No matter what "they" say, a successful career in the acting profession is actually possible for anyone. The most common reasons most actors don't "make it" are simply that they...- Were unsure where to start or what to do on a daily basis.- Never learned to market, organize, produce, and brand themselves. - Didn't run their careers like a business. - Quit on their dreams assuming they weren't good enough.- Lacked the winning mindset needed to endure the rejections that lead to success. Acting is My Day Job: Seven Strategies to Market and Make Money as an Actor provides actionable strategies to build momentum, capitalize on early success, and build the habits required to establish a lasting acting career. Matthew Dearing delivers the truth about what it takes to be a working actor, leaving no more room for regret and excuses."The brutal truth - talent, good looks and desire aren't enough. You must develop strategies to monetize doing what you LOVE. Every actor should read and re-read this book." - JEREMY A. LOPEZ PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER, VANGELIS FILMS.
