It’s Monday! How ya feelin? Are you feeling like “Woohoo! It’s Monday”? Or are you feeling like “Ugh, it’s Monday”? Today I woke up feeling like “UGH! It’s Monday!” I’m.So.Tired..... I’m in the middle of tech rehearsals for the show I’m choreographing. But I’m still running my coaching business, participating in two different training courses and I’m raising two kids……among other things.
Basically, I’ve been burning the candle at both ends and it’s finally catching up...
It’s back to school. Fall is quickly approaching. You can feel the shift of energy all around even though it’s still HOT AS HELL here in SoCal.
Did you know that September is Self Care Month?! IKR?!......My first thoughts when I heard that September is self-care month, were 1. Final-fuckin-ly. Self-care is important dammit. And then, 2. It’s kinda sad that we need a dedicated month to remind us to make well being a priority.
Okay, have you ever had the feeling of being totally down in the dumps? That’s how I felt a couple of months ago when my marketing director quit on me. YEP, that’s right. She up and quit on me, and for days I felt like shit about it. I’m fine now but I was so hurt and felt so defeated. She sent me a TEXT MESSAGE that read, “I’m no longer interested — there’s no gelling. I’ll send over all logins and files and instructions tomorrow!” And poof like that it was over.
I recently went to a birthday party at a Gothic/BDSM club in Hollywood called Bar Sinister. I had never been to a club like that before. It was an experience that I learned a lot from!!
Bar Sinister has been around since the ‘80s, serving as a home base to the Southland's Gothic population. To be honest, I didn’t know to expect. Was I going to fit in? Have a good time? Open Pandora’s Box and fall down the rabbit hole? I had heard there was going to be a live BDSM (Bondage-Discipline-Sadism-Masochism)...
The theatre community is mourning the death of a true MASTER! Hal Prince died last week, at the age of 91. His contribution to the theatre is nothing short of legendary. He was a highly accomplished artist in so many ways.
Just in case you’re not familiar with him, here is a rundown of some of his accolades:
The Phantom of the Opera
West Side Story
Fiddler on the Rood
Now that’s what you call a LEGACY!! Professionally, he will always be known as a...
The other day, I was talking to my Assistant (who is also an actress and recent BFA graduate), and she suggested that I write a blog post on “Tips for an Amazing Headshot” in honor of National Camera Day, which is today. (Say Cheese 📸)
My immediate thought was, “Who needs another blog post about how to get amazing headshots?” I mean… anyone can just go on Backstage, there’s a crap ton of articles. And besides, I’m a mindset & business coach here to show artists how to take their careers and life off...
