TIP OF THE WEEK – Get a Manager or an Agent

Performer : Get a Manager or an Agent

The true secret to getting a manager or an agent is in the form of Networking, Marketing, and Practicing within the chosen field of interest. Building and cultivation those relationships is an establishing point to open doors for opportunity. Next, take a Brand to build awareness which creates interest and ultimately generates sales (or involvement). And finally practice the given skill/craft and the two aforementioned necessities to develop a naturally instinctive ability to be present of your effort at all time.

Often I will state how Networking, Marketing, and Practicing leads to success. There will always be a general fundamental in those three things. That feeling of enlightenment when the realization of a networking circle’s value is revealed. Friends, family, and associates will lead to opportunity. When I first met my acting manager it was through a mutual friend who had already spoke grandly, and truthfully, about me. It was my Brand that allowed him to have something to speak about. Who I was, what I do, how well I do it, and my personality in general.
Once I was in the room it was knowing what my brand is. How it would benefit both parties to a mutual working relationship. Before I walked into that room they were already 30+ years into the business and did not need my help to make any more money. So the old ‘Send me on auditions and I’ll get booked’ mentality was out the window. Instead, I explained how I was making a living doing it already. How my career (Brand) was growing and established. Managers/Agents want to take on an already growing and working client because they know you will actually utilize their help.

Friends lead to doors, brand opens them, and practice keeps you inside!

COMIC CON 2016!!!

COMIC CON 2016!!!

Four days of amazing adventure. Did I explore a little, Yes, but I mostly stayed put at The Grey Woods booth. Which is fine. 180K+ showed up and a majority of those people walked by and I said hi. Comic Con is different for each person attending. For most it is a fun place to show off their costume they’ve been working on for months. For others it is a place to be seen, to show their creations off to people: Books, drawings, etc. Unless your Marvel then it’s all about LOOK AT WHAT WE HAVE COMING! And that’s a good fun thing.

What is Comic Con to me? A place to Network, Market, and Practice my skill in growing my career in life. To be at the mercy of hundreds of thousands of people and just say ‘Hey, take my photo’ is not what I am about. This event was much more than that to me. I always try to build relationships with people, and most importantly let people know who I am and what I do. This is where the practice comes in. I filmed a little for my Make A Right Left Here TV, messed with a few people to add to the fun of it all. I swapped cards with business owners and people alike! It was fun. Also got interviewed!

Now after all that, what is the point of Comic Con!? For me, it was about follow ups. I reached out to people and emailed them, where I could I added them on social media, and I showed interest in what they have to offer because I actually care too. I had to organize all the photos and videos and set up a release of each so I can get the most out of it instead of just sharing everything in one big shot. Marketing is about slow and steady to get the most out of it. Anyone can do it, they need only have a schedule filled with patience.

Oh, and I enjoyed the experience of Comic Con for the first time! Great fun!

Getting To The Next Level As A…

Before success, in a career of your chosen field, specifically entertainment, there are a few stigmas out there keeping the status quo down: The old school mentality that ‘talent & skill’ alone will get you to the promise land & it is widely believed that if you get a Manager / Agent… i.e. discovered, then your career is inevitable. Ultimately that mentality is a cover up to what is really going on. Truth of it all, is despite your hard work in becoming the greatest skilled performer and hoping for that manager/agent… comes down to this…

Your manager doesn’t get you work. They utilize their relationships over the years with casting directors to get you in the door. (NETWORKING) At this point you have two jobs; 1) Be professional, show up on time, and have options for them. 2) Network, Market, and Practice. Build and cultivate the relationships with the short amount of time you get, and show your personality of who you are (BRAND / MARKETING), and use that time to understand the system of auditioning so you can become more comfortable for future auditions (PRACTICING).

Your manager doesn’t expect you to get booked for at least a year. If you do get booked, then great! But they want you to be seen. Because Casting Agents / Directors book people they are familiar with. Since 2015 Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence, and Jeremy Renner have been in 3 films. That is not a coincidence. They are not auditioning for projects. They have relationships, brand value, and work hard to maintain those things. They can also perform. Thus utilizing the 3 Needs of Success: Network, Market, and Practice.

The reality is at all times you must be utilizing these aspects of running your business to obtain a long and prosperous career in any given field. I will list below, then do your do-diligence and research successful people.


• 3 Needs of Success: Network (Building and cultivating relationships), Market (Taking a Brand to build awareness to create interest that ultimately generates a buy into it), Practice (Your skill/talent and the other areas of running your life business)

• 3 Needs of Longevity: Management (Time, Money, and People), Entrepreneur (Brainstorming, finding solutions, calculated chances, thinking outside the box), Talent (You must have the ability to play the game in your given field when you get there)

• 3 Needs of Purpose: Security (To protect your calculated chances), Growth (Money to invest), Dream (This is reward money for hard work)

• 8 Assets of life: (Invest into these over time) Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, Intellectual Properties, Real Estate, Businesses, I.O.U’s, Commodities

There is a greater understanding of each of these four areas. Of course, the basic concept can be researched and look into how successful people are utilizing each of these four areas.

What three things help a person to succeed?

• 3 Things to bring your mind into the Now!

Best part about life is the journey. Experiencing all woes and joys in an undecided fate is a wonderful feeling. Fearfully so, I might add and yet, I still believe that my mind can handle it. What is next, what will happen? With plans filled in endless dreams about doing what I love, anything is possible when it comes to stopping or helping my efforts forward. In the beginning, or end, I am the great decider of what I will do next.

A time for proactive movement is at an constant NOW! Hurt, sick, penniless, without opportunity!? Forget that crap. Fear is in the mind. People with no arms and legs make careers doing what they love. People without opportunity create chance. People who have loss everything find success again. There is a huge difference between a failed individual and successful person. That separation is a person willing to take responsibility of their current situation and changing it.

Allow me to suggest three things to bring your mind into the NOW!

ONE : Do what you enjoy. If you are doing your passion it will help you wake up in the morning. It will remind you that you are not working a dead-end job but making a difference in bringing your dream to life. Breathe in what you love and turn it into your purpose. You can make a living doing what you love.

DOS : Manage your money wisely. Know what your monthly overhead is. How much it cost you and your life business to survive. Save over your expense by organizing your money. Have four business bank accounts (Primary Checking, Security Savings, Growth Savings, Dream Savings). Spend less than you save. Set a budget to live and die by. Take control of your money.

DREI : An unstoppable Team around you. This game of success is not about friends. It is about the right friends, right family, and the right people surrounding you. Make sure the value of your life is filled with the value of those around you. Positivity builds productivity. It’s nice to work with your friends but if they are keeping you down then it is time to find someone else. Life is once.

Believe in you and those around you and then become the change you want to see in this world. Be becoming successful doing what you love it will add to the world around and promote positivity and hope! Peace in harmony!

Music Along the Sound

• Music Along the Sound

Music is the heart of life. It connects us even when our languages seem silence and lost in translation. Music moves the world around us and brings people together. It has the power to drive motivation or tackle your soul down to darken shadows deep within depression. Music is and will always be a growing part of our lives as people even if we do not truly wish to embrace it. If you walk in the outside world, or watch TV/Movies, that music will hit you right in the heart.

As of late I have been working diligently on both a live album for my one year cancer free celebration for 2017 and for my studio album. What a difficult time for my memory buttons. Dealing with reasons of leaving TENEbRAE and watching music fade around me. Well, it is time to bring it back to life. Every week I have dedicated a few hours to writing, cleaning up, or practicing music. It is a part of who I am, why change that in any fashion!?

If I did this to be successful in life I would have the wrong idea. I am creating art to ensure my soul can live again. The success of this entertainer comes from Networking, Marketing, and Practicing my craft. If you believe product brings success you are forgetting about the most important part about success… people. People must have an attachment to your Brand (Marketing), like you (Networking), and you must be good enough to do what you do (Practice) so all the above pays off in the end.

BE ALIVE and sing your soul free with an instrument or your voice!

I Feel Like A Unicorn

• I Feel Like A Unicorn

Transcendence touches few people in this world. Some are lucky enough to reach it through meditation, or world building events. Others are bound by wars, or extreme stress that takes your body beyond its limits until that mind is floating above a life you once thought you could understand. Coming back home to rest near people who have yet to discover where your mind has had a journey moreover its expected ability. Who are they now!?

For over a year I felt warn, weak, and in pain. A sense of death routed through my dreams as I could hardly walk up stairs. A simple task caused my breath to fail on me. I tossed it up to my nerve system acting up. It eventually began impeding on my ability to make my rounds. To get out there for comedy, production meetings, even sitting in my chair to write. The major change came when I could not walk up stairs once I reached the fifth step. Got myself to the doctor.

If you feel broken then go get checked. Cancer has opened my eyes to life. I am seeing things differently and more purely. What matter in beforehand is in a silent wonder in the back of my mind. While I move forward in a clear breathing and open sky. Living with one Kidney is as many others do. All the stories are making me feel better. This is my story, my traveling adventures of a resilient entertainer who is kind of on break while I heal more. Open doors for those around you and live.

Peace in harmony, until again…

Peace; The Final Frontier

06 13 16
• Peace; The Final Frontier

Peace; The Final Frontier. A place most of us dream of being. There are others patiently moving calmly in this state of mind. Yet, few will understand how one can live softly inside a mental utopia of peace. Deep in a revolving door of turmoil our speck of a blue planet carries a filthy human race destroying our potential destiny to be great. Mourning for those we have loved, for strangers we sympathize with, from these fallen souls will tears stop in our hands of action or flow into rivers of endless blood?

Generally for people a random happening causes change. These outstanding and woeful points in time adjust thinking patterns into realigning inward hopes. Human conditioning is oddly aggressive down to every tiny twist or minor tweak within our invisible psyche. Being lost inside a drone’s body can be fearfully overwhelming. However, the lot of us take steps into that blank stare walk each day. What malevolent act must arise to activate a transition inside you? Life happens in seconds, not years…

I am one voice obscured in an ocean of incoherent rants filled with lemmings spewing lost ideals at misguided cultures killing to be correct. One voice. But, even a single spark camouflaged in a collage of stars could one day grow into a sun bright enough to influence birth in worlds. I have one small ripple to add to life, one small pondering query of hope for humanity. Stop making excuses or waiting for a big bang to change the life you despise. Start living among one another, as an individual, in a group.

This death we call life is destroying our universal hope for possibility. Begin each day to see the best in yourself. Understand things have zero meaning until we place that meaning unto it. Be peaceful with your neighbors near and far. Be truthful with yourself. Speak your soul. Be happy, find happiness, and change what makes you unhappy. You have a dream? Be vigilant in your sacrifice to make those dreams come true. BE YOU!

If I am to die, if you are to die, I want to know each of you have a beautiful tomorrow waiting for you. That you could potentially wake each morning in a glorious tomorrow of possibility. Know we are not promised tomorrow and for that you must live in today with great hope that you will regret nothing in your tomorrow morning, if and when you wake. You deserve every moment within you. Read this with your mind soaring in ideas to be your truest self. Read it with motivating strength. Read it and believe.

Be captivating to others while opening doors to your peaceful resolve! Truth in action!

Peace in harmony, until again…
~ Thomas J. Bellezza
