About the Book:

I Could Have Been a Cab Driver... But I Became an Actor Instead is about the business of acting. It explains in detail how an actor makes money and creates a career. It is not a basic introduction to the business, but an advanced business book that helps the actor create and sustain a career.

"Okay, I can act. Now, how to I make a living?" JoBe Cerny knows how. In I Could Have Been a Cab Driver... But I Became an Actor Instead, he teaches you how to take a product – your acting ability – and create a business – your acting career. He has been in the business as an actor earing top dollar for more than thirty years. He never drove a cab or waited on table. Acting is his business and acting is what he does to earn his living.

JoBe Cerny covers topics like finding acting jobs, long term career management, agent relations, developing a saleable image, advertising, marketing, public relations, money management, continuing education, physical training, business expansion, health insurance, pension plans, union involvement, and dealing with the everyday personal problems every working actor faces.

I Could Have Been a Cab Driver... But I Became an Actor Instead was developed over a thirty year period and tested in college classroom situations in an effort to answer questions aspiring actors had about the acting business. This book goes beyond the college classroom into the real world of the business of acting. It answers the question that troubles every actor the most: "How do I make money as an actor?"

While the book offers very sound business advice, it is written in a humorous and inspirational way that gives you a very realistic idea of what it takes to be a professional actor.
