I did what you said and I got two interviews with two agents! Thank you! Sorry but can I ask you how do I prepare to go meet the agent? What do I have to do?

Acting in television commercials
There are many different ways to start an acting career. Many actors want that coveted leading role in a film, Broadway play or on their favorite television show and they trudge along that route sometimes for years. What I say is that if that route is working for you, then go for it. If it isn’t, then you might want to think of doing something different.
I went to visit “Coach Mike” Pointer of ‘Hey I Saw Your Commercial’.
He has made quite a name for himself by not only teaching actors the advantages of starting their careers in television commercials, but by also walking them through the process of making it happen step-by-step. I myself, being an admirer of step-by-step processes, I had to go and interview Mike.
So enjoy this first part of an exclusive interview I did with him for you, the visitors to ActingCareerStartUp.com and for the students of the ActingCareerQuickStart Home-Study Course.
See this five minute piece of the video interview with Mike Pointer here below. If you have been trying to start your acting career for a while now in a way that is not working for you, then these five minutes of watching this video and listening to what he has to say, will be well worth your while. Check it out.
Mike Pointer created a school for actors in Los Angeles, California called ‘Hey I Saw Your Commercial’. He gives free classes that allows you to see what it’s all about before actually committing to the entire course. You can visit Mikes website for more information. If you want to start acting in television commercials, this is a course that I highly recommend.
You can find more information about acting in television commercials and how to get started here on this website.
ActingCareerStartUp.com along with the ActingCareerQuickStart Home-Study Course bring you all the tools you could possibly need to not only get your acting career started, but to help you build a base for long-term success. You don’t have to go about it all alone.
One of the biggest things new actors feel to realize is that fifty percent of your success depends not on your talent, who knows you or whether you have an agent. Fifty percent of your success in anything you do depends on your mental approach, on whether or not you have a winning attitude. Read Mike Pointer's book that talks about how you can develop that kind of attitude for yourself.
And here are some additional books you might want to pick up that can help you get started acting in television commercials.

I want to say you changed my life. I want to be an actress so bad, but i began losing motivation when I couldn't figure out what to do. And then I found you! Thanks to you, I'm taking my first acting classes next month! Yippee!
