I am an actress and there are definitely some things to do to get started and to be successful. Sign up for notifications of acting jobs that you can audition for at Actor's Access.com, Backstage.com, and castingnetworks.com. Always make sure you update your resume and develop your reel overtime to show the best quality of your acting (make sure it's under two minutes). Constantly work on your craft and be honest with yourself. If there's an area you lack in, improve it. If you think you might be the evil villain but are that goofy person sell it. Know who you are, don't try to be someone else. Acting is about putting yourself in the created situations. Never give up. Acting and all businesses for that matter will always be filled with rejection after rejection. Those who succeed are the ones who learn from their failures and keep going. Always move forward and always improve. Be smart with who you take advice from in the industry: not everyone has all the answers. What made one person successful is not always what will make you successful. Know your skills (not just being able to juggle) but what makes you smart and resourceful and utilize those skills to get you to where you need to go.
