entertainment industry coach question 764:How do I deal with finding work in such a bad economy?

Finding work is always about one thing- relationships. Instead of focusing on the economy, focus on relationships. For some people the economy has turned around and they are working. Like beauty is in the eye of the beholder so are the circumstances of life. If it weren't the economy putting obstacles in your way of finding work, it would always be something for someone. Do you get what I mean by that? For years people were affected by run-away-production, then came fast changes in technology, then productions were leaving major production cities and going to other states in the US, and the economy struggle on top of all of this.

I'm not trying to bring your down, I simply want to point out that with the nature of our industry there will always be something that presents a challenge for someone. So back to my first sentence. Finding work is always about one thing- relationships. As long as there are people working out there (which there are) there are jobs to be had. Therefore, consider our time not working at your craft, time to be working on your business. Which means expanding your relationships with people who work.
