I have hesitated to write about money because I’m an acting coach.  But I talk to many talented and passionate actors, who came to Hollywood to pursue their dream, but they’re not in class and their headshots are old or their career is on hold because “I can’t afford it.”

Is money stopping you from living your passion?

You are one of the few people who have listened to your instincts and had the guts to follow your passion. Most people are too afraid to follow their hearts and take actions towards their dreams.

You owe it to yourself to start running your career like a business and the first thing you need is a budget.

Here are four great resources that can help you manage your money and make your vision a reality.

1. Financial Peace University
2. Consumer Credit Counseling
3. Debtors Anonymous
4. Budgetblonde.com

P.S. Parents of young actors who want to come to Hollywood and help your child follow their dream … you need one too! The number one reason I see kids go home empty handed is because mom and dad ran out of money.

If you’re reading this, acting is your business and you need to run it like a business. The more you run it like a business, the better your results. As you start to understand your bottom line you will start to understand how agents, managers, producers and casting directors think. You might even get that it’s a business decision when you don’t get cast and it’s not personal.

Ask yourself this: “If I were the CEO of multi-million dollar business and had a $100,000 to give to an actor would I give it to me?” Of course you say “Yeah baby!” But think like a CEO and ask yourself these questions:

1. Is my product (me, my audition skills, acting chops) at the top of its game, the best it can be?

2. Do I have a budget for my business?

3. Do I have a business plan?

4. Do I have a marketing plan?

5. Do I have a team (i.e. agent, manager, acting coach, lawyer) in place that is excited about working for me?

6. Do I have a target list of business relationships with whom I’m networking? (i.e. casting directors and producers – people who can hire me.)

7. Do I know my statistics regarding my auditions, callbacks, and bookings?

If you answer “No” to any of questions then get to work.  Start thinking and acting like you are the CEO of your business.
