entertainment industry coach Question 482: How do I get work in this economy?!?!?

Wow.. lot's of punctuation. You get the work the same way you would in a great economy. The difference is the people you know may be out of work too, which means you have to target the people who are working. Sounds like it's time for you to start creating new relationships.

Here's the thing, it takes time to build new relationships. Getting work from new people is not a quick fix/silver bullet technique. In order to maintain stability in an unstable industry, it's important to recognize that people in the entertainment industry need supplemental, parallel, and/or passive income streams. If you are in serious financial trouble, it may be in your best interest to find work to bring in income rather than using all of your time building new relationships.

The biggest myth in this industry is that you are somehow a "failure" if you make money at anything other than your craft. This is not true! Financial stability will make it easier for you to find work doing your craft in the future.
