A lot of people spend their time 9-5 working or studying and do a little extra work outside for this. It’s different for people who love their jobs and/or are truly committed to them. Being in the performance and modelling industry (or any other creative industry) you’re ALWAYS working, your mind is always churning out new ideas, and there’s no limit, this is 24/7! A lot of work goes into creating a routine, rehearsing, makeup, hair, styling, costuming and much more!
Though this is my holiday away from WAAPA, which usually takes up at least 9am till 6pm of my day (sometimes we have to be there as late as 11pm!) I fill my days with as much as possible. I rehearse routines for upcoming shows, exercise, perfect technique and strength and take dance classes. I’m constantly updating my websites online, emailing and everything else. If I go out I’m constantly getting ideas from surroundings, always looking for costumes, props and anything else. Though it is healthy to turn off all of this by doing hobbies you love, its important to remember great things never came to those who waited around; they came to those who worked their derrieres off!
With all of this in mind, I thought I’d share a few self promotional/networking tips:
I hope this has been of some use to you! As always if you’d like anymore advice feel free to email me!
