Please help me, make my dream come true.
Please help me, you're my last hope.
Please help me, I don't know what to do.
Please help me, I want to be on TV.
Those are the few examples of DM's I receive on a daily basis. They range from young boys and girls to older men and women. Now as some of you may know, I have a company called Sans Group (www.sansgroup.co) which is a training studio for acting and dancing, and also a talent management agency. Helping people advance in life and particularly in the entertainment industry is something I am passionate about. Any, if not all my students can tell you about how passionate I am when it comes to that.
But here's the flip side...instead of asking someone to make things happen for you, how about you do your part and ask for help when you've exhausted your resources. We live in a time where research is easy to do because of internet and cellphones. The data that you used to message me or whoever you messaged, use that to research ways in which you can advance yourself to take one step closer to your dream. Nothing comes over night...unless you play the Lotto and get lucky.
RESEARCH --> legit agencies / acting classes / actors resume formats / showreels / acting techniques / portfolios / headshots... the list goes on and on!!
We can't afford to be lazy. We have to push and educate ourselves so that when someone does give you an opportunity you're ready to do the best you can possibly do! If you want to do something, the responsibility is on you to find out what you need to do to be able to do that thing that you want to do. If all the people you are asking or messaging didn't exist, what would you do to make your dream a reality??
