Ep. 6: The Secret To Successful Preparation

Show Notes

What do you do to prepare for an audition? How can you bring your full, authentic self to the work- while remaining flexible and relaxed in the room? In this episode, Risa and Steve break down audition preparation in the simplest, clearest terms, in order for you to start to transform your audition process… and book more work!

“When you deal with the person in front of you (in an audition), a whole other moment and world emerge, and you have to let that preparation go and be 100% present. That’s championship-level work. That’s the black belt audition.”‍
