Thanks to everyone who watched my Vlog last week! This is seriously so freeing. I confess, I wanted to take a nap in bed this Thursday, because yesterday was extremely productive, so I felt a little wiped out. I thought it was a great excuse, except I wouldn't be able to do my Vlog. It's only been one week and already this accountability tool is saving me from my own temptations. A win! More good news and lessons to share. Here's the breakdown and the video to follow...
#1- What practical tips or skills did I learn in the last week?
One amazing person I found on Twitter was Heidi Dean of Marketing4Actors.com. She is lovely not only because she always replies to my tweets, but because she gives so many practicals on how to take hold of social media, which has become crucial for actors and running our own business. Definitely check her out.
#2- The work I'm doing now: What am I currently working on and excited about in my craft?
So 2017 has started off strong with lots of goals in play! My company, The Shelter, LLC became official this week, so I was able to start the signatory paperwork, so that our webseries can have Union actors. This is so exciting (and so scary). I also did my first two auditions of the year and stuck with my newly-focused philosophy of "Just letting the character come to life." That's a tip from Bryan Cranston. The goal is not to book the job!
#3- The Faith Lesson: What did I learn about being faithful this week?
Slow moments can be the greatest blessings. I've been sick all week, and it's given me more clarity and focus than if I had been able to run around going to the boxing gym four times a week and getting every little thing done that I had planned. The scripture reference is Psalms 46:10, and it's as true as ever: "Be still and know that I am God."
