It's that time of the year again! The weather gets warmer, the people get nicer, and you're getting out of your hibernation period. NOW is the time to wipe the crud from your eyes and turn a fresh eye towards your career.
Just like spring cleaning, you need to take out the Pledge, Windex, and Pine Sol and start scrubbing.
If you really want to change your career, start making the clean steps and make it happen.
1.) Clean your room, clean your office space. You'll do your work better, you'll think clearer, and make your mom proud. DISCLAIMER: Having a clean place might make friends come by more often.
2.) Clean up your resume. Take off some older credits, update them with new ones. Play around with the format and font if you're feeling adventurous.
3.) Headshots have that Sepia color? CLEAN it up! Look for a photographer you like and schedule an appointment.
4.) Update your training. Everyone knows that the two halves of this business are "What You Know" and "Who You Know". Get the best of both worlds with some brand new classes.
5.) Clean up your look! Take hold of that love/hate relationship you have with the mirror and tell it whose boss! Guys: Check your hair style & facial hair. Ladies: Make-up. If you're planning to make a change, this is the best time of the year to do it.
6.) Whatcha Wearin'? Whether you are a starving actor or not, there's no need to look like one! Buy a couple new outfits and show them off to the world.
To say again - people get nicer when the weather turns from winter to warm. Have you noticed yourself smiling more now that it's sunny? You're not the only one! Everyone is in a good mood, especially this industry!
The southeast is the busiest it's been in a decade and NOW is the time for you to claim your stake. Open the windows and get fresh some fresh air - Motivate yourself!
Just a few little Clean-Up steps that can make all the difference when giving yourself and your career a refresh.
