    Hi Ajarae.

    THANK YOU!!! For your comments on “Acting as a Business”. I couldn’t agree you more. I spent so much time on the craft, I neglected the Business. Now, it’s the Business. But, I get it!

    I LOVE that post! Yes, we have to be cognizant of the business and understand where we may fit into it. But you’re right: too much of the messaging is about branding and networking and business speak and not enough is about the craft. Because ultimately we get satisfaction from the work, whatever it may be. And I think the best kind of networking is working: doing a play, a short film, even a student film. I’ve worked with USC students who are now working at big agencies, casting offices or with big time showrunners. Thanks for this post Ajarae!

    Yes! Thank you for saying so. My experience has been they say “treat it like a business” until I have a question about a deal or the enforcement of a contract (like any business owner would), and then I’m labeled as a “difficult” talent. We’re told, “treat it like a business” and then we’re not respected as a business. Ugh.
