I have combined my 20 years experience as an actor with my university business education to create a success plan for artists in the entertainment industry.
The Actor Advantage Program is guaranteed 100%.
Four years ago my girlfriend came home from an audition and she was extremely upset. Exasperated, she screamed "I wish someone would just tell me what to do!"... Over the years I have encountered many actors with the same frustrations.
I have been an actor for over 18 years. Even though I have had 4 recurring roles on TV series and my average earnings are more than twice the industry standard BUT my acting income was still below the poverty line AND therefore I became a frustrated and angry actor.
I wish there would have been someone who could have guided me. So I did some research, combined my university education (marketing) with my experience as an actor and created the Actor Advantage Program. Taking care of your show-business will make you a better artist. (check out the testimonials)
The definition of insanity to keep on doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result. The average income earned by union members in the US & Canada is less than $6000 per year. Far below the poverty level. It has been this way for years.
As actors, if we want this to change, we need to take a different perspective. The "Actor Advantage Program" helps actors do this.
