Things They Didn't Tell You in Acting Class

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we discuss how to approach big decisions in life that will have a larger impact on your career than you may realize when you first set out to chase your dream job. Primarily, we discuss logistics. For actors, this list includes decisions as seemingly simple as which city, how big of a market, which teacher to seek out to begin your training. While this may sound obvious to those of you in more traditional paths, for young people in a creative field, their passion can blind them from addressing the very big elephant in the room: how to sustain one's self through the lean years in a very fickle and competitive industry.

Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.

It is not the critic who counts. If you’ve been knocked down... get up, dust yourself off, and get back in the arena. If you want to give back, share this with someone who could use it and leave a 5-star review on Apple Podcasts, or wherever you listen, so more people find this show and benefit from these conversations.

Control Your Own Destiny

In this excerpt from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we discuss the idea of taking matters into your own hands and giving yourself the right energy to build your own career. We realize that it's not about waiting for approval or following the crowd – you can create opportunities of your own and be in control of your destiny. For example, since joining the group, Insider’s member Bryce has created a short film that earned him his SAG card; an amazing achievement and an experience that now makes him a resource to other upcoming actors.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.

Backing Up is Not the Same as Backing Down

In this excerpt, from one of our monthly VIP Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, with Best-selling Author/Speaker/Mountaineer Alison Levine, Alison shares with us that climbing Mount Everest includes a lot of climbing down Mount Everest. In order for climbers to get used to the altitude to which they'll be ascending, they take several trips to camps at various heights on the mountain. But between each night at the higher camps, they have to go back down to basecamp (which took 10 days to hike to in the first place). The parallels between climbing Everest and so many feats that we mere mortals are attempting to "climb" are endless. Alison explains that progress does not always happen in one direction. Those periods where you think you're back-tracking are actually just times when you're replenishing and recovering and getting ready to reach higher heights.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.

Just Put it Out There

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we discuss the value of speaking your ideas out loud so that others can build upon them with you and help you create something even better. Despite most people's fears that their ideas are going to be stolen and they're going to be cut out of the mix, the truth is that the idea is nothing without great execution. The saddest thing is to speak to someone who has been holding on to a "great idea" for years, waiting for the perfect time to release it to the world only to find that someone else beat them to it. You've got to risk failure if you want any chance at success.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.
