The Acting Podcast

Ep. 7: How To Get An Agent

Show Notes

In this episode of The Acting Podcast, Risa and Steve tackle the most frequently asked question of all: “How do I get an agent?” They break it all down, covering everything from cultivating industry relationships and the practical, business side of communicating to advocating for yourself in your work and in the Industry so that you’re ready to engage with agents and managers. Listen in as they champion you to reclaim your power, create connection, bring your value to every aspect of you career, and understand what’s ultimately important in finding real success- with or without an agent.

“You are a part of this industry if you choose to be. But you have to STEP UP and you have to do the daily work that it takes- from a place of LOVE OF THE WORK, of knowing your VALUE, of offering that value, of seeing agents and managers as human beings and collaborators… and realizing that the process of finding representation takes time, patience, and consistent bold, creative work in your artistic life.”‍
