A long time ago in an acceptance speech far far away, I said you couldn’t throw a stick without hitting a potential mentor. The punchline was that hopefully, you wouldn’t hit them anywhere that would make them not want to help you.
Response to the book has been overwhelmingly positive, and I maintain that if you have a single question here or there, you should feel free to drop me an email or post here and I’ll try to answer as quickly as I can. If you need more help, drop me a line and we can discuss consultation at a modest fee. I dig giving free advice, but sometimes if one person has a bazillion questions, it slows down the train for everyone else a bit, so consultation becomes the way to go.
I’ve been lucky enough to work with a lot of really great folks whose advice to me over the years has proven invaluable, and I hope that you, as aspiring reality professionals or even mid-career folks, never forget to seek out those who might have some solid advice for you. Going it alone is rough and scary, and you can lose years of your life to chasing your pretend version of how things are supposed to work in the entertainment industry.
Pros and newbies alike, please take a moment to respond to this post with any great stories you may have about someone who’s mentored you and your advice to anyone who might be trying to connect with someone with wisdom to share.
