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 Quiz Results:
Important Considerations
Part I

It's Tony here from www.actingcareerstartup.com with the actor quiz results!

I hope that you have been making progress in your acting career since I have answered a question you asked me or since you have filled out the Actor Quiz. At any rate I want to thank you, because you have contributed to my being able to help hundreds of new actors in just a short period of time. I’m constantly learning more about what it is you want and need.

Reading and interpreting the results of the Actor Quiz has been very, very interesting. Let me tell you! I have drawn some interesting conclusions that I would like to share with you. They will help you to see that in some of the issues and difficulties you have in furthering your career and to see that you are not alone. And hopefully, with my help, these results will help you to see what you can do to get closer to getting more work as an actor!

Did you know that of those of you who responded to the Actor Quiz on www.actingcareerstartup.com :

48% have been acting for less than a year
36% have been acting from 1 – 5 years
11% between 5 and 10 years
6% for more than 10 years

It’s interesting to note that all respondents have issues to deal with; the major one being that they do not yet have regular work. Only a small percentage reported working regularly (less than 5% of all the above-mentioned categories).

In spite of that fact, only 22% of respondents reported that they are taking classes regularly.
65% are not taking classes at all.
12% are taking classes sporadically.

Actor Quiz Results:
OK. Just one more statistic

65% report that they either have no financial worries at all, manage to scrape together the money to fund their careers or have enough money…

That’s enough statistics for now. There are many other statistics. There are many considerations I have from this quiz. And if you are taking acting classes, then keep reading and stay tuned to my e-mail messages, because be assured that there will be some valuable information for you too coming soon!

Actor Quiz Results
So what do you deduce from these statistics that I have presented you here above? Probably many things. What could you conclude from a person who has the following characteristics?

· Has been acting now from anywhere from six months to five years (maybe even more)
· Is not taking acting classes, but does have the money to be able to fund his/her career?

Actor Quiz Results:
Speaking for myself, seeing those two things makes me have some questions about that person. They are:

· Why isn’t he/she taking classes?
· What is her/his perception of the importance of taking acting classes?
· Does she/he realize the importance of taking classes?
· If he/she says that money is not a problem, is there something else other than money that is keeping his/her from take acting classes?
· Could it be that time is an issue? Could it be that work at ‘the real’ job is keeping her/him from being able to take classes?
· Is this person really motivated enough to pursue an acting career?
· Does this person have what it takes to become an actor in terms of having the ability to do what’s necessary?
· How far is this person willing to go. In other words what is this person really willing to do to become an actor?

Actor Quiz Results:
So now what?

I invite you to reflect on those questions with regard to your own situation and in the next instalment of Actor Quiz Results: Important Considerations, we will discuss what your next steps need to be if you really want to solve this issue that is keeping you from taking classes. AND, I will introduce you to 21 benefits of taking acting classes. Stay tuned.
