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.

Actor RJ Householder

An Example of Determination & Hard Work

RJ Householder
Letter to AcdtingCareerStartUp.com from new actor RJ Householder:

This young man is a great example of what determination and hard work can do for you! He wrote me this letter here below. After I read it, I thought to myself that this is something that other new and aspiring actors need to see. Acting is a tough business and anything is possible, but you have to work hard and you have to really want it. Wanting it means that you have to be willing do what is necessary to achieve your goals. Read here what RJ has done over the last year and what he is doing now to start his acting career.

Here is the letter I received from Actor RJ Householder:

I love your web site. I am 40 ye old male and just started pursuing my life-long dream to become an actor14 months ago. All I had then was a strong desire. Since then I am currently working on my second play where I play Sergius in Arms and the Man, a lead role. I am also filming a movie in new Jersey. We will be finishing that next year. I have done some extra and featured work also and also landed an agent here in Albany, NY and my next goal is to get one in a bigger city like NYC.

I am told that I have the lead role in an upcoming movie shooting soon in Texas and it pays 500-700 a day plus food an lodging. I get most of my roles by seeking them on websites and applying. I keep two to three sites on the internet and subscribe to backstage as well. I tell you all this because when I first started I didn't have a clue what to do but then I found you website. I simply started by trying to make a blank resume just to have something on it. I have come along way in 14 months but my plans are to go much farther. I just pursue my dreams with passion and I can only fail if I quit. Its a very hard market to break into but once I got my toe in the door I am now prying it open to get the rest of my body in. Again I would like to personally thank you for your web site and the wealth of info on it. Hopefully by this time next year I will have achieved some of my many goals. Any new actor should read your web site inside and out.

Thank you again,
RJ Householder.
One actor trying to make it.
