PREVIEW: 10 Years Of Act On This & What It's Taught Me - With Actor & Founder Ross Grant!

podcast preview Jan 20, 2020

It blows my mind, to think is 10 YEARS OLD this year!

When I had the idea to create a website for actors all those years ago, I never dreamt it would become the largest knowledge platform for our industry - ON THE PLANET!

There is no other resource on Earth, bringing casting directors, agents, actors and other top industry professionals together, to help elevate others, on a weekly basis.

It's certainly not been plain sailing to get here though, and in this podcast the tables are turned, as I become the podcast guest!

I sit down with Act On This cameraman, Lee Petcher, to spill the beans on the last decade, and EVERYTHING this crazy journey has taught me!

During our chat, we discuss:

  • The origins of Act On This - and where it all began.
  • How I met Petch, and how he ended up working for the site.
  • The importance of leaving your comfort zone.
  • Why IMMEDIATE ACTION is everything.
  • Social media and why consistency is key.
  • Why you need to stop using adversity as an excuse NOT to do things.
  • LinkedIn - and why EVERY actor should be on the platform.
  • Why promoting your headshots and showreel to other actors is 99% pointless.
  • What I was like as a kid.
  • The lesson from my mum, that has shaped my ENTIRE LIFE.
  • How my dad taught me that HARD WORK matters.
  • The £51,000 I won - and how I nearly lost it all!
  • Losing my eyesight to Retinitis Pigmentosa - and how I deal with it.
  • Voiceover - how it changed my life, and how it can change yours too.
  • My first podcast, ad how I recorded it on the phone!
  • Why patience + hard word make you dangerous in life.
  • Goal-setting and how I set goals my each year.
  • My TOP life lessons.

And MUCH MUCH more!
