(From the Book: 101 Tips for Actors)


As an actor, the most important thing you need to understand is that the entertainment industry is a business industry. It's about the business of making money, thus the term "Show Business."

From the very start of your career, the best decision you can make is to view every aspect of your career from a business perspective. From the acting class you take to the agent who represents you, every decision you make should be a business decision.

In the real estate business, it is said that you should never become emotionally involved in buying a house. With that in mind, if you really want to succeed in this industry, then the only time your emotions should come into play is the moment the director says "Action." Until that point in time, whenever you're faced with a decision, you always want to ask yourself this question: "In making this choice, am I moving my career forward, backward, or am I standing still?"   

Always remember: When it comes to your career, you are the CEO, the Business Manager, the Marketing Director and the Administrative Assistant, so make your decisions accordingly.  
BREAKDOWN: The most important thing you need to remember is that the entertainment industry is a business industry; it's about the business of making money.
