Do you have a dream to be working in Hollywood but don’t know where to start? Like in all careers, networking and building relationships are so important in Hollywood and people are cast not only for how well they play the part but also for who they are as a person. In this episode, I am joined by my friend and fellow Hollywood dream maker, Richard “RB” Botto.
