About the Book:

Become your future agent's dream client before you've even met.

Actors are frequently on the quest for representation. You need a manager to help guide you through the process of becoming a working actor. Or do you? It's your career. Why not manage yourself? Self-Management for Actors: Getting Down to (Show) Business will help you take control of your career from the business side of things.

There is no secret method to succeeding in Hollywood. There is no password-entry system to join the Working Actor Club. What does exist is a simple, self-management concept that allows you to handle the business of your acting career without losing the ability to be a creative artist. By learning how to build your brand, target your buyers, create content that showcases you best, and pitch like the rockstar you are, you'll build a fulfilling career (wherever you live) that helps rocket you to the next tier. Balance is key, and the tips in Self-Management for Actors will put you well on your way to having the best manager you deserve: yourself!

In an exciting fourth edition packed with details on mastering your market, moving to Los Angeles, and working the red carpet, Self-Management for Actors is Hollywood Grad School — in book form!
