Finances are a big issue for actors, especially at the beginning of their career when they take a lot of unpaid or low-paying roles and still try to make ends meet. It can trigger a lot of stressors, which impacts your auditions which impacts your booking which then impacts the money you make etc.

Some people are even willing to risk the lengths of homelessness because pursuing acting is so important to them.

Some people feel like having another job is conflicting for them.

Some people grappling with student debt.

It’s part of the trajectory of so many A-level actors too when they started their career.

Money is a real, tangible factor for everyone but what’s the mindset you have around money?

Your REACTION to the struggle you have around money is key to your journey as an actor. There’s no point denying it or complaining about it because it’s inevitable for actors. You can choose your reaction to it.

How will you react to the lack of it, at whatever stage you’re at as an actor? Your reaction to money will determine your experience with money and the lack thereof.

When you say “it’s hard… it’s unfair… I’m a struggling artist… it’s just harder than other professions” that makes it a bad problem coz there’s nothing you can do about it.

When you watch my training below you'll discover that the way to reimagine it is to realize that YOU’RE THE KIND OF HUMAN BEING THAT HAS A PASSION SO BIG THAT YOU’VE DECIDED TO START AN ENDEAVOUR INTO A CAREER THAT DOESN’T BRING IN MONEY RIGHT OFF THE BAT.

That’s a change in mindset. That’s empowering. It’s now a choice that you’re making. Opportunities and possibilities now open up.

Only someone who’s a big, passionate, #BAMF enters an audition room with freedom. They don’t audition with the fear of booking just to pay rent.

If you’re switching your mindset and realize you’re not the victim of an industry that doesn’t reward your talents. You’re a passionate artist who made the choice to be willing to be uncomfortable because of how passionate you are. That’s what you audition with. Now you can be present and do your job. You excel when you’re present. ‘Coz when you’re present you ONLY CARE ABOUT DEFENDING YOUR CHARACTER.

Your finances aren’t holding you back, it’s your reaction to it that is. Choose a reaction that works for you.
