Generate Income as a Performer

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I love performing and acting, but how do I make a living at it?” With Hollywood on pause, this is a great time to learn how to make income as a performer in multiple mediums like commercials, print, industrials, and voice over, and be prepared to work as an actor when Television and Film resumes. In this interactive class, James shares his tools from 20 years of making a living as a performer, the ‘7 buckets of income’ model, and the 7 ‘R’s of crafting a career as an actor, how to prepare for a career in TV, Film, and VO, and the keys to combining mind, body, and heart to invite in opportunities of abundance. We’ll also dive into multiple mediums of income such as commercials, hosting shows, industrials, spokesperson, and live events.Sliding scale pricing for this workshop is available for TGNC, Black, Indigenous and Global Majority artists and those with financial need.
