PREVIEW: 10 Years Of Act On This & What It's Taught Me - With Actor & Founder Ross Grant!Jan 20, 2020
It blows my mind, to think www.actonthis.tv 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!
