And there’s a big difference.
My friends who were far more talented than me, and had degrees from acting schools were starting to quit.
They were getting older, and they started saying things like “I just can’t stand being broke anymore”
I had a desk job myself, and I was about to throw in the towel too.
I Was Broke, Frustrated, and Going Nowhere In My Acting Career…
-Then $20 Changed My Whole Life!”
You see about 11 years ago, I found a terrible, scammy-looking website that told me I could “make money online”.
And even though I have tried them before, I am
talking about an “mlm pyramid deal”, or “get other people to…” or anything like that at all- an actual course, about making money in a specific, simple, methodical way.
The course cost me $1000(!), and I didn’t have it at the time, but I put it on a credit card because I wanted to change the path I was on.
Do you know what I mean?
I also knew that if I was going to spend that much, that I would take it seriously and follow through with it. I would NOT let this pass me by.
There’s an old saying that “If you keep doing what you’ve done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve gotten”.
I was willing to change what I was doing because I wanted a different path.
I paid the $1000, and opened my mind.
I learned about making a sort of “Online Vending Machine”, selling
people’s stuff on a website. Kinda like whenever someone buys something from a vending machine, the owner of the machine makes money.
But I learned to do it online; It was weird at first, and I tried to do what it said, but I lost even more money.
And then more.
But I wasn’t going to give up, and I learned more with each failure.
Until one day, I made $20.
I wasn’t working at a job (in fact, I was at rehearsal), when I suddenly realized that this little website I had made selling other people’s stuff made me $20 that day.
Well that was just the beginning!
I figured that since I could learn to make $20 in a day, that if I kept going, I could learn to make $200 in a day.
At first I only made a little, but I kept doing it until it became simple.
Then one day I made $1200 in one day just selling other people’s stuff on my website!
That was the day I Quit My Day Job,
And I never looked back!
And Free from the Day Job, I could suddenly do ANYTHING I Wanted!
I STARTED MEETING AGENTS,
GOING ON AUDITIONS, and BOOKING ACTING WORK!
Since I make money without a day job, I’ve been able to go on auditions, do shows, and shoot
of commercials. I’ve done very little TV and film, but in my career so far…
I have managed to make over $400,000 strictly from acting work.
I know- I can hardly believe it either.
And my family started seeing me on TV…
My mom actually started telling people that I was an actor, (instead of being embarrassed) and proudly asking “Have you seen my child on TV?”
And my neighbors saw me on TV…
And they would stop me in the street “Hey! I saw you, and I told everyone that I knew you!”
You see, once I got free of spending most of my time trying to make money to live on, I could do what I ACTUALLY wanted to do:
I get to PERFORM all the time,
and not worry about the money!
Nobody asks “Are you still TRYING to be an actor?” when you’re making money!
