Do something every day, no matter how small!
Rachel Errington is one of the sweetest actors I've ever worked with. Although we've never met in person, our relationship has been fully cultured and solidified over social networks and courses.
I'm excited to share Rachel's advice and experience with you.
For those that don’t know you, tell us a little bit about Rachel Errington!
I'm a NYC-based actress. I'm in the process of writing, producing and starring in my first short film! I'm also starting my own virtual assistance business.
What are you currently working on or towards?
I’m continuing to build my online presence and authentically build my online community!
What's your advice for aspiring artists?
Take baby steps. I know it’s become a cliché but this business truly is a marathon. Especially now with all the information and opportunities out there, it is very easy to get overwhelmed and then do nothing. Be nice to yourself. If you do something every day, no matter how small, but keep your eye on the goal, you will succeed.
What made you decide to enroll in the S.A.T. and S.B.T.?
Social media was something I had been avoiding, mostly out of fear. Realizing that the entertainment industry has been steadily embracing social media more and more, I needed help in this arena. Having listened to Tony’s awesome webinar that introduced the course, I thought Social Artist Training was a good fit.
Since taking the S.A.T. and now the Social Business Training, my mindset about social media has changed. I don’t get overwhelmed as easily and actually am enjoying tweeting!
What have you learned from Tony?
I learned a tremendous amount. Tony is incredibly knowledgeable and generous with his expertise. One of the biggest things I’ve learned is that in order to use social media effectively, you must be AUTHENTIC.
Social media is so much about adding value (in addition to making contacts).
