  1. Hi! I watch & love all your videos 🙂

    My Question: You said May & December are the best months to look for an agent, does the same go for managers? May and December? Or do you think because many carry less clients they take meeting year round? Thanks!

  2. Thank you so much for watching!

    I wasn’t really sure exactly how to answer you when you posted this questions, so I reached out to a couple of managers I know. Of course I got different answers. One said he is busy hustling and scheduling and working with his current clients, and there is no way he can consider additional people. And the other said, yes, it’s a busy time, but he’s always on the lookout for special, talented actors. Everyone’s preferences will be a little different of course. My advice: If you reach out to a potential manager, and he or she is too busy to meet, make sure to get their input on a good follow up time and reach out again then.
