HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE! It may be close to the end of the year, but we aren’t taking a #GuruTips break!
One of my friends mentioned how she always worries about having to discuss being an actress when she’s home for the holidays. Her family isn’t in the industry so every time she’s home, she always gets…
“Have you been in anything yet?”
“Don’t you know how hard it is to make money as an actor?”
“Shouldn’t you get a real job?”
Constantly hearing all of this can be discouraging, especially when you feel like you don’t have much to say. I created this quick video with some tips that you can use and consider when heading home for the holidays!
Heading home for the holidays can be… tough, especially when you’re an actor. You put work into your career, but still feel like you have nothing to share. We got you covered. Learn how to survive this holiday season as an actor with these #GuruTips from @ActResourceGuru @Ajarae! #ActorsLife #HolidaySeason #Share
Remember – whatever it is you’re doing, you ARE doing something. Your family wants you to succeed, so share what you’re up to! Having a great meeting with your agent to discuss pilot season is a GREAT update! (especially if they’re not in the industry!)
I hope these tips help you out this year! If you have a tip for surviving the holiday season as an actor, share it in the comments below! We’d love to hear it!
