If you want a career in the arts, you need to have a Plan A. It’s not about having one goal with a straight arrow to it. It’s about creating an ultimate career goal and a plan to get there so that you know how to articulate it to others so they can see how to use your talent & how to help you. Knowing your skills, resources and assets and being able to express clearly what you want from life will get you jobs. As a Film & TV music executive at a major record company, I had the pleasure of running our west coast internship program. Through mentoring our valuable interns, I thrived by helping people achieve their goals and break into their career path. I was then a part time opera singer, and decided to use the lessons I was teaching them to apply to my own true career path. Through tangible action steps, guided by a Plan A, I got to my goal of singing full time. Yet, I still had many people contacting me for mentorship to break into the entertainment industry, whether it be in music licensing, singing, acting, or taking the next step in their careers, developing management & leadership skills, work efficiency and marketing strategies. It was then that I started taking on these people as clients. It is joyful work for me to help others get where they are meant to go. I've worked with countless people as a singer and in the music industry and am so inspired by the unique paths available to us all. A common thread is that we need mentorship. I didn't realize how important it was until years into my career when, for the first time, I became a mentor. In my one-on-one consultations, I work with people on their specific needs. A few examples of frequent client needs are: • Create your Plan A -Assess your ultimate career goal -Identify the assets, resources and skills you currently have -Plan to acquire the assets, resources and skills you need -Create action steps & timelines to move your Plan A forward • Resume and cover letter revisions & interview skills • Management & Leadership styles • Educational guidance as to the best courses to take for your specific goals • Social media development • Website development • Demo & Press Kit development
