Atlanta Event! Business / Art Workshop - The Entrepreneurial Actor

Friday, September 20, 2019, 6:30pm

Price: $59.00

In the current marketplace, an actor is not just an actor-for-hire. You are an entrepreneur. You are more than “a business.” You are a start-up. So what does that mean? The current Merriam-Webster dictionary has a simple answer - “a person who starts a business and is willing to risk loss in order to make money.” This definition absolutely applies to actors and artists as we all know actors have to invest money in a whole lot of expenses before they can even think about getting an agent and auditioning. Some actors never make a profit. 

Be a working actor who makes a profit.  

In this essential workshop for working actors, we will fully explore what it means to be an entrepreneur. The entrepreneurial spirit is one of great insight, innovation, creativity, risk-taking, and discipline. We will explore:

  • The Traits of an Entrepreneur
  • Goals and Priorirites
  • Time Management Skills 
  • Financial Health
  • Mindset or How To Battle Your Self-Trust Issues

PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT TAKES PLACE IN ATLANTA at the King Plow Arts Center, 887 West Marietta St, Atlanta, Suite M103.
