Publisher's Summary

Created as a primer for the beginning actor, To Be or Wanna Be takes you on a journey that reveals the path to becoming a successful actor, as well as how to avoid the pitfalls of the starving artist. Beginning with the simple, yet important distinctions of how to take control of your career, and through personal anecdotes of how he discovered them, Sean Pratt guides you toward the more complex and powerful concepts that will make all the difference in your future success as an actor.

Covering topics such as finding the right day job, networking, becoming the CEO of “Your Career Inc.”, and marketing to the right niche, each idea is accompanied with a “How-To” section and additional resources that will propel you forward on the road to success in your acting career.

    "A Must-Listen For Any Performer/Actor/Singer"

    This book is filled with so much common-sense and vital practical advice that any aspiring performer should listen to it if they want to start their careers on the right track. Sean Pratt is easy to listen to and I had a sense of him sitting chatting with me instead of him reading aloud. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I as a voice-actor and my actor-in-training son will most definitely benefit from listening to Sean's wise words. Thank you Sean.

    "I learned a lot!"

    This was interesting and educational. I felt strong in some areas, and in the ones where I have more to learn, I felt that very practical advice was presented. I'm excited to learn more from this excellent coach.

    "Content is well thought out!"

    Excellent exercise audiobook with heaps of ideas to act on. I look at this as a workbook that will be useful today or in 5 years. Thanks for all the recommended listening in this primer Sean! Quality of audio well paced, a bit fast for listing books to find but easily solved by hitting pause. Have a notebook handy and be ready to write like crazy ;)
