Do you think it's possible to treat acting as a business? I have been around enough successful actors to know that it is possible.
Now, after examining the other business principles, its about taking all this information and putting it together to get your business of you going in the right direction, maintain your good results, or improve on others.
Successful artists treat their careers as a business. They are the CEOs of their own companies.

The following is a list of some characteristics that successful entrepreneurs have in common.
Analytical skills - Positive mental attitude - · Business skills -
Resourcefulness - Communication skills - Results oriented -
