Chelsea's Choice #3
15th June 2018
Recently I did something I had never done before - attend a seminar about business and self development.
There are many different types of workshops, ranging from self-development training to business tips and tricks.
I believe that attending training classes and/or discussions are one of the most important things you could be doing with your spare time, primarily as a model and actor.
For both actors and models alike, it is essential to expand your horizon. Instead of sitting on my hands, waiting for an opportunity to come to me, I go catch opportunity myself!
Go and enrol yourself into various classes - from personal development to acting classes!
Having a vast expanse of skills heightens the chances of getting a job in both your modelling and/or acting career. Casting directors and clients often love it when you have a far-flung amount of skills!
For example, a lot of models believe that the modelling and acting world are far apart, when in fact, they are inseparable. It isn’t mandatory that a model can act, but it certainly helps when you know how to pose and how to act when you go to a casting for a TVC (television commercial)!
If you are looking for advice when it comes to business, or simply for inspiration - I recommend trying out ISR Training, a service supported by three sharks on the popular television show Shark Tank Australia.
And if you want to up the ante for your career, I suggest checking out The Warehouse Workshop Acting Studio for the beginner, intermediate and expert classes on acting. As I have had personal experience with the amazing mentors, and attended many of their classes - Phil Holder and Tom McSweeney.
And remember -
Knowledge is not power.
Knowledge is 'potential' power.
ACTION is power.
Life rewards ACTION.
Take action and never miss an opportunity to expand your horizons!
