Picture Your Way To Success
I'm going to open up this blog with a couple of quotes we've shared with many we've represented talent wise...
"A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success." - Joyce Brothers
"Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do." - Pele
It all starts with recognizing your own talents! Once you define yourself and begin to showcase your talents, those around you will begin take recognition. When you're able to picture your way to success within your talents, others will too.
5 Steps to Getting Talents Discovered
Once you develop a plan of action and overall direction, we highly recommend following these 5 steps to succeed within your talents...
1. Network, Network, Network! We cannot express this enough. Making what you do a priority, requires communicating with like-minded people through social media marketing and in person meetings.
2. Find representation! This is something we are strong advocates in, as Todd Matherne Photography & Promotions continues to provide this service to a wide variety of local talent.
3. A must have is what we like to call..."Tools of the Trade!" For example, if you're an Actress, you'll need Headshots, Talent Resume, Website, Agent and Acting Classes just to name a few. Musicians will need Demo CD's, Music Equipment, Band Members, and so on. Own your craft, study, and stay fresh. No matter what your talent, all require some form of Representation!
4. Brand yourself, your name, and your talent! Become a household name! One way to do that, is to have the same representation of yourself across every social media outlet and within everyone you know.
5. Stay professional at all cost. Always present your talents as exactly what they are and nothing less. When you do, you'll gain an abundance of recognition.
