What is The Actors' Network?

Career Strategoy

A career, of any kind, requires a long term mindset and a plan. A performance career is no different and even more difficult because of its subjective nature. Making a living as an actor is increasingly difficult regardless of your city and Hollywood is the most challenging. Talent and who you know in the 21st century, isn't enough anymore. Success also requires an intelligent plan, plus the knowledge and tools necessary to execute your plan every day, just like any other profession.
