It is often assumed that successful artists have "made it" forever when they are "discovered" by a producer, director, or agent. But the reality is that a career in the arts requires research, careful planning, networking, financial prowess, thoughtful specificity, and dedication to creating a career with longevity. I'm Talented . . . Now What? helps aspiring performing artists make actionable plans to pursue a successful, financially stable career. Using dozens of exercises and templates throughout, Michelle Loucadoux fosters creativity, specificity, and practicality through a 16-week workbook suitable for arts courses. Topics include how to create a marketing plan, presenting a brand specific to goals, and building a network of industry-related contacts. Actors, singers, dancers, musicians, and other creatives will find this book useful in becoming entrepreneurial in their approaches.
