Some readers have emailed asking me for an update on my new career path. Thanks for your interest! I am starting my 4th commercials class this month.
This class is for on-camera commercials – scary but fun!
Soon I will be getting photos taken and getting a demo together to send to agents. It’s starting to seem real! I still have classes probably through the end of summer, though.
NOT quitting my “day job” though – luckily, my boss is super supportive and is encouraging me. He lets me leave early for classes when needed. I am working on a contract basis, but my contract was just renewed for six more months, so that’s a big relief! Work is still very busy and I still love working there.
I am beginning to realize just how much fun it could be to do commercials for a living. Everyone I’ve met so far in the industry is super nice and loves their work.
In a couple of weeks, I’m attending a network dinner with industry professionals to make more contacts and get career advice. Should be fun!
