Actors are amazing people willing to share our dreams and love for life with the world. These qualities also make us vulnerable to exploitation. The best way to protect ourselves and still live our passion is to understand the business side of show business. Knowledge is power.
I know many talented actors who have never succeeded professionally because they donít understand how to maneuver through the business world with their art. I also know many average actors (and even some lousy ones) who have solid careers because they are smart business people.
