Great way to spend summer, but kind of waste

As noted elsewhere in this blog, goal setting is a huge part of getting good things done. If you set a goal, say the pundits, you are already half way to achieving it. Consider these possible goals to make and achieve in the short term. Possibly you could plan to have the goals well thought through by June 21, and then executed by September 21.

  1. Get a refinance on your home – Here is an article that offers you some recommendations about reasons you may want to refinance as soon as possible. If you should choose to take that idea to the next step, you might want to talk to mortgage broker Bill Rayman in Los Angeles.
  2. Take Spanish Classes – In about eight weeks, one night per week, you can achieve a decent capability in Spanish. Use your new skills for travel, speaking to coworkers, or just to improve you chances in the workforce. Beverly Hills Lingual Institute is the largest school offering Spanish classes in Los Angeles. http://BHLingual.com
  3. Make some major changes in your home, or even start plans to build a custom home – Meet with a general contractor and discuss your dreams regarding your home. If you live in Dallas, you may want to reach out to http://Uniquehomebuild.com. A smaller project that might really change your life, even your health, would be to install a steam bath in your home. Be sure to include a Mystifier Automatic Eucalyptus Oil Injection System in your steam bath. This is the unit used in 5 star hotels, resorts and fitness centers.
  4. Take some acting classes in NYC. Whether you might want to get better at doing YouTube shorts, go for that TV acting career you’ve always dreamed of, or try your hand at commercials, there is a great school in NYC who specializes in acting in front of the cameras.

  5. Get into some serious cycling – Get started in mountain biking on the trails around Mt. Baldy. Buy your Trek Mountain Bike at a great bike shop in Ontario, CA, Bumstead’s Bicycles. Website is http://bumsteadbikes.com. Or maybe you’d like to do some triathlons. Check out one of the top triathlon shops in the US. T3 Cycling and Triathlon, a bike shop near Indianapolis in Carmel, IN. Check out their website at http://T3multisport.com.

Becoming a Success in Acting

Stop Searching. We Have the Secret Key to Being a Successful Actor!

Stop Searching. We Have the Secret Key to Being a Successful Actor!

Wouldn’t you love to know the key to being a successful actor? Many people ask this question. We offer acting classes in NYC to equip you for success in your acting career with both classes and one-on-one coaching. Today, we want to share with you the keys to being a successful actor!

It’s not so complicated. One key to acting is to be ready.

Opportunities are a rare thing in this business, and they tend to show up when you least expect it. That’s why you need to be prepared. You have to be the best actor you can be so you can take advantage of unexpected chances. This may sound like common sense, but unfortunately, the majority of actors end up lost in the business side of their careers. They spend their time searching for the right headshot, signing up for workshops, trying to network with agents, and anything else that might birth an opportunity. That’s all good, but if you want to succeed, you need to have balance. And that means working on your craft.

The truth is, aside from talent and being prepared, there are three ways to become a better actor. The first is the most obvious. Get enrolled in an acting class. There is no substitute for studying with the right teacher. Even experienced actors keep learning because they know that’s the best way to stay focused. If you are currently only experienced on stage, you will need specific training to be prepared for TV, films, commercials, and other jobs that are in front of a camera.

Second, if you want to be a great actor, you have to act! It’s really that simple. Granted, you can’t book a challenging guest-star role every week, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find ways to do your own thing. We now live in a world where anyone can afford to create their own short or web series. You can even shoot an entire movie on your phone! So, don’t waste your down time.  Keep in front of a camera and audience whenever possible.

And finally, if you want to improve as an actor, you have to watch good acting. There are many ways to do this without spending too much money. Find a television show or series where you find the acting at a good level and study the performances. Who knows? One day, you might be working with some of those people.

There are many ways to improve your acting and like we said before, the key is to simply be ready. Don’t wait for the opportunity, create one! Stay sharp on your skills and keep learning.

Acting classes can actually be great for those who have no intention of becoming a professional entertainer. They build confidence and help you become better at making a presentation before a potential boss, a client, or in front of a business meeting.
