I had a meeting with my agent. I had finally met her and felt instantly connected.
What I took away from the meeting is that having a clear and strategic plan may assist you with taking the correct steps towards the right direction.
For the first time, I don’t feel alone on this journey. The wheels are in motion.
Yes, at times it may appear that you are travelling on this path, scattered and trying to land some traction, but I truly believe that,
“IT TAKES AN VILLAGE TO CREATE A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST.” – I am coining this quote.
It takes time, trial and error, learning, tears, fears and utter enjoyment.
I work in an industry that a degree doesn’t guarantee a job. Being in a long-running drama doesn’t guarantee you will be employed again.
But I am in an occupation that when one of us passes away, millions mourn the world over. Our work can move a stranger to tears/laughter/anger/nostalgia etc. Our work entertains. It allows us and the viewer to imagine and can make a massive and significant impact on our world.
Artists out there – enjoy your journey. Don’t be too concerned with time and goals. Be more mindful of your impact. Your legacy. How has your work effected another – and that’s including yourselves.
We are creators.
