Emmy Award Winner Tom Skerritt, You Can Do It, Ya Just Gotta Keep Moving

I'm super psyched about this week's guest, none other than Emmy Award Winner Tom Skerritt. You might know him from his iconic roles in Top Gun, The River Runs Through It, Alien, M*A*S*H*, and Picket Fences. We chat about his humble beginnings in Detroit, to his first films with none other than Robert Redford, Sydney Pollack and Robert Altman.


Tom's love for art and creativity have lead him to start the company Triple Squirrels and the EVRGRN channel, focusing on sharing stories that bring us inspiration, light and hope. This conversation is one that all young actors can learn from, about how to approach their art and how to keep a positive attitude in such an up and down career, as Tom says "just keep movin' kid, just keep movin'...."

Are You Fully Alive in Your Acting?

In this excerpt from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we discuss the idea of being present and how there is simply nowhere else to be. The past is gone; the future is our imagination; the only thing we have is right now. Many of us enjoy activitieslike surfing or riding rollercoasters, not realizing that the real thrillis that they force us to be present. Soit’s in those moments that weare most fully alive. For many actors, on some subconscious level, that might bethe reason we've chosen this career- as painfulas it can sometimes be, it inherently forces usto be present.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.

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.
