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.

If you want to start an acting career then this video is certainly one you will want to see! Thousands of people make an attempt each year to fulfill their dream of making it to the big screen, to Broadway or to act on their favorite soap, Disney Channel show or prime-time series. The reality of the situation is that most people never end up having the kind of acting career they dreamed of. And what's worse, when things don't go their way, they rarely have a clue as to why.

Actor, author, motivational speaker, seminar leader and creator of ActingCareerStartUp.com Anthony Smith has quickly become a leading authority on what it takes to START an acting career. He takes his 15 plus years of corporate business experience, along with his acting, voice-over, hosting and interviewing experience and teaches actors young and old how they can successfully eliminate the term struggling actor from their vocabulary and significantly increase the probability of getting regular acting work!

In his experience and research and in talking to and answering the questions of literally thousands of new and aspiring actors, Anthony asked himself a series of very fundamental questions.

"What is the difference between those attempting to start an acting career who are able to always find work as actors and those who are not?"

"What do they do differently than the people who struggle for a long time, sometimes years?"

"Why is it that some people can't seem to find a talent agent or find available acting jobs while others seem to find them very easily?"

"What are the things that someone needs to do to be relatively sure that if she does them, that she will get acting work?"

After asking himself those questions, Anthony went to work to create ActingCareerStartUp.com, write his best-selling book Acting Career Start-Up: Four Key Factors For Success AND...he went to work to create a series of videos to further help new and aspiring actors fulfill their dreams! The first video in this series is:
