June 30th, 2010 – CONTACTS!!
It’s been a few days, I’ve neglected my precious new blog. Silly to do when you have a goal!
But I’ve made progress. I’m going to meet up with a few people int he industry to try and get some help with understanding the industry. One is an agent who was my Professor for a Trade Overview course with Ryerson. We’ll meet for coffee, talk a little business and get some perspective on this ‘Freelance’ thing I’ve thrown myself into.
Also, I’ve been in touch with a Publicist who has her own business who was also a previous teacher. She’s taken my resume and has decided to maybe give me a few pointers. Can’t hurt right? Not to mention the fact that she remembers me after a year. That’s a nice feeling.
Besides that I’ve signed up to volunteer for OwlKids at the Taste of the Danforth in Toronto August 7th! It’ll be good, meet a few people and get out there doing things in the industry. Could make some contacts, might not, who knows! All I’m concerned with is the kids. I’m good with them, but not a big fan with the crying, the screaming, the running and pinching. But I’m looking forward to it!
So, progress is good. Don’t know where it’ll take me but it’s good. Now if I could just find someone to represent I’d be on my way….
