What does it mean to “make it” as an actor?

Lots of people will say it means that all your money comes from acting. It means you are finally able to fully support yourself with acting income.

But I think it’s a lot more deep than that.

I think it means freedom.

So I encourage actors to create residual income sources so that they are thriving financially whether they are working as an actor or not.

And having a side hustle doesn’t mean you are not a successful actor. Celebrities are doing it.

For many successful actors, this is more than a way to supplement income… it’s also a way to feed other aspects of their creativity.

Watch this video and I’ll explain.

Think about what you might like to create for yourself, and share it with me in the comments. I’d love to hold space for your vision!
