As a working actor and teacher, I get a lot of emails and calls from people asking for my advice. I find that I am re-typing/retelling the same advice over and over again, so I’ve started a blog so that I can just direct people to the subject of interest and be done with it. So it’s really for selfish reasons. Hahaha! Anyway, I am just one person and can only share what has worked for me and the people I know. There are lots of people with different opinions that might work better for you–but this is just my 2 cents. I hope it helps.
Love and luck to you all.
