#42 Need Reps? Referrals are Dangerous & Here's Why

• 35 min

Remixing some of the best of the best from our Bonus episodes and this one is all about the big bad R-- Referrals!  Sharon, Shawn and Misha share their personal stories of what form of referrals to agents and managers they took in the past, how they dealt with them in the present, and why they will never turn to them again. CLOSER LOOK & TAKEAWAYS Why you get that icky feeling when you use a referral Other people’s great reps may not be a great fit for you Learn to navigate the offers from others without burning bridges A better way to finding your “perfect fit” representation...and it may surprise you! With this series, actors I’m talking to you: I believe that acting is your calling and your purpose on the planet. You use your voice, and your body, and all that you are, to tell stories that remind US what it is to be human. You have the power to change lives. And, we all know that having great representation makes that impact all that much more possible.  But let’s not get it twisted – looking for an agent or a manager sucks. It’s not straightforward, there are tons of people telling you the best-slash-only ways to do it, and it can leave you in a constant state of anxiety thinking to yourself – is this ever going to happen for me?  And that's why in this series of tell-all interviews with my agent goals students – you’ll hear how they did it. REMINDER: Each of these bonus episodes is very different because each of these actors wants different things from their careers: some want to be on Broadway, others have their sights set on tv and film, and still others are creators and want to land reps that are excited by that.  Thank you for tuning in to this episode of Brian Breaks Character!
