If you ask someone how to make it and they tell you “Just keep getting on stage”, they are not giving you advice. They are just telling you to practice. That’s not advice, that is a necessity. In fact, it is one of the 3 Needs of Success; Networking, Marketing and Practice. So when you finally learn the system of any business “pay it forward” of any information you learned. Help one another with real advice. Like, how you got to know a certain person. Or, what does one do to prepare material. Even better, how you keep in contact with people that have helped you.
The business of taking advice is just as important as the business of giving advice. Our success has open a door to others trying to make it as well. I feel this holds two sides to it. 1) Listen to advice given. You don’t always have to take it, but it is nice to listen to it. You never know what you’ll get from it today, tomorrow or in the future. Some times the full advice doesn’t hit you correctly but a small part of it might change your life… if you allow yourself to absorb it. 2) Learn to give proper advice and not just wave someone off. Working together, helping one another helps the industry. Give direct advice that you’ve utilized over your time to success.
What kind of advice have you been looking for as you were going through the motions? As you gain the knowledge of this advice then present to others. Don’t hold back, there is plenty of room in entertainment to let others know the deal. People who stay in the light are the people who are hard workers. Knowing how to become successful and doing it are two different things. So it is okay to give advice to everyone. One of the advantages to giving advice to someone is that you are hearing yourself explain this advice. If you listen to what you are saying, or as you are talking to people, you may start to see a new side to that particular advice.
So advise away!!!
