As the year-end approaches, make time for a year-end career audit. But don't let income define your journey ...

As we approach the end of the year, it's a great opportunity to run a "forensic" audit on your career journey. 
As you review the acting work you did, the opportunities you earned and the new relationships you began to development, take stock of those wins. 
But as my just-out, year-end column in Backstage addresses, do not make the mistake of judging your career progress this past year by the amount of money (if any) that your acting work may have generated for you in 2019. 
It will be a great new year ahead! :)

Merry, Happy & "Why Aren't You a Star Yet?" Holiday Visits Home Often Require Patience and a Bit of Pre-Planning ...

Heading home for the holidays can stir both joy and anxiety ... particularly when family members start quizzing you about why you're not a star yet. My Backstage column last year at this time is worth reading again.
Squeeze all of the joy you can out of this holiday season by being prepared with the right answers to those questions that inevitably will get asked from well-meaning loved ones.
I hope this helps!
Wishing you a tolerable holiday ... :)
