I started really acting back in the mid-2000's. Some guys at my (then) fiance's work were going to film a movie, and they needed an actor. I was bored and wanted something to do, and thought that would be something fun. It turns out that acting is a type of drug: all it takes is one time, and you're hooked. After that short film I got married and we moved down to Wilmington, NC, where a large number of movies and TV shows were being filmed at the time. It was there that my appetite for acting grew, and I got a taste for theater as well. Since then I've been in a wide variety of film and stage roles, from background to lead, and I've begun writing a number of short stories and scripts to hopefully film myself someday. I'm living back in Ohio now (temporarily?) but am still pursuing the dream.

Can I dream that I'll make a plan one day? :-)

Shawn Speake Thank you for your encouragement! And you're right- planning gets me closer to where I want to be than dreaming does.

It's all about how we talk to ourselves. We are what we think we are. If we think working in this business is a dream, that's what it will be. This business is the same as any other - it's a job. A blessed job, but a job nonetheless. Talk about it in a realistic way for better business results.
