I founded my company three years ago. I’ve always wanted to be an actor but now I’m late 30s. I reside in L.A.

Do you have advice regarding being a founder and trying to be an actor?

Thank you!

    Start by working with one of your local community theaters. Find the highest quality organization you can. They will respect the fact that you have a job and most rehearsals and performances will be after hours. If you really want to get into professional acting, the full-time aspect of it was is more about finding each job and being willing to drop everything on a days notice to work the next day. Breaking into acting is a full time job and it’s hard to do it if your time belongs to someone else.

    My thought is that it's a great hobby and a terrible career move
