Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Treating Acting As A Career

10. The Concept Of Sustainable Growth

You will want to treat your acting as a career if you are really serious and in this for the long haul.

Once again, the parallel between business and acting as a career. Businesses make growth projections based on trends in the market, their ability to respond to what consumers need and want, and based on their plans. They try to ensure that over time, they will continue to grow. That means that they not only think about the effect their actions will have in the short term, but also in the long-term. They want to ensure that what they're doing today will provide a base for what happens tomorrow.

The last thing you want is to be blindsided because you weren’t prepared. That is one of the big benefits of planning and research. Keeping abreast of what’s happening and staying informed helps to reduce that risk, because you are prepared and can react in real time to any challenges that arrive.

The planning process is designed to ensure that the company will continue to grow over time. This is the concept of sustainable growth. To do this, it is necessary to have a long-term strategy.

This is why it is important to take time at the beginning of any endeavor to set it up right. Think about more than just what you are doing today. Think rather about how what you are doing today is going to positively affect, not only today, but also tomorrow. Plant the seeds on fertile ground, in the right climate and at the right time will ensure that you reap a great harvest. Setting up the business well, getting your training, being disciplined and applying business principles and working hard can't help but set you up a business that will keep you busy for a long time, that's if and only if, you treat your acting as a career.
