Show notes:

Hey there, hero!

We live and work in a world of art, and self-expression, and artistic choices.

We also live and work in a world of writers, producers, directors, and casting people.

This video is meant to be a bit blunt: you need to hear this, and know that if you think any differently about where you are in the ecosystem, it might be hurting your chances at success.

Watch the video.

Remember that I love you.

Then tell me your thoughts in the comments below.

  1. This is so excellent! I love this perspective. “Solving their problem” – because then I become a collaborator, helpful, giving something. And I would add that the same holds after I get the job. Still not “about me.” I’m a part of the mechanism getting this product out. Excellent!!!

  2. This echoes what I once heard George Clooney say in an interview, about the mindset shift that changed his career before ER. Help them solve their problem! And if it’s not you, at least you get to still go and have a great rest of your day… and they still have a problem to solve 😉
