I just had to share some awesome news with you. Some months ago, I watched your webinar with Danielle Eskinazi - from that I learned that she pays attention to her actors on social media, so I began a Twitter relationship with her - keeping up to date with her workshops, retweeting valuable insights she shared etc.
I'm not sure if you remember, but back then YOU went to bat for me by suggesting and recommending my work on Twitter - solidifying and progressing that relationship. Weeks later, Danielle met me at a workshop for the first time and we discussed you and The Actors Green Room. I read some copy, Danielle gave me really positive feedback and I felt confident that I "brought it" and looked forward to getting called in to her office.
Then...nothing. Crickets. For a split second, I wondered if maybe I hadn't done my best work in the room. I wondered if maybe there was something I'd missed, or if I'd been too pushy. But from everything I've learned in The Green Lounge, I reminded myself that I had to be patient and keep moving forward. "If you build it...", right??
Cut to this morning. My commercial agent calls me. He says, "Get ready to go STRAIGHT TO PRODUCERS tomorrow morning for a commercial spot with...wait for it....Danielle Eskinazi"!
HUGE reminders for me - CREATE the relationship. TRUST in the process. DO the work. MOVE forward. BELIEVE.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the MAGIC that is the Actors Green Room. Now, excuse me while I go squeal and pirouette around my kitchen. :)
Can't wait to see you in LA!!
