I HAVE To Share.

I have some stuff to share with you all. First of all, I booked "Wizards of Waverly Place!" I auditioned for this so long ago that I didn't even know I was still being considered, so I was T-TOTALLY shocked when my manager called and gave me the news. I'll be shooting in front a live studio audience for the first time, so I'm excited about that.

I'm also plugging right along on my web series. I won't bore you with the details, but I'm in the process of becoming a SAG signatory (it will be a SAG New Media project), have a co-producer and a consulting producer, a director, almost a whole cast, and lots of friends who happen to have connections for EQUIPMENT! I was just asking some buddies for advice and they started offering me stuff. I am so touched. And happy b/c I need to save money any way I can save and not have it make the production look chintzy.

Lastly, I want to leave you inspired. The following video is 10 minutes long, and worth watching every second. I had no idea that Will Smith was so insightful. I have watched this several times already today - he says a lot of things that I've expressed to people who told me that I sounded crazy and that I was unrealistic. Told me to "look at the statistics." I take this as reinforcement and encouragement. Hopefully you will take something valuable from it as well.

    Nicole, I absolutely LOVED that video! I've always admired Will Smith for his ability to do anything he wanted to do in terms of his career and excel at it! I mean the man was/is successful in music, television, films, and producing....I liked what he said about not needing a Plan B if you have a Plan A. Thanks so much for that-it's just the inspiration I needed.

  2. Thanks for the video. Definitely lots of little gems in there to think on.

  3. It's definitely worth every single second! I adore him and I totally agree with the things he said.
    Thank you very much for sharing - I will do so on my blog:-) Let the inspiration flow!
    All the best from Germany

  4. Thanks, y'all! Wasn't that video awesome? I'm going to watch it again right now...

  5. Haven't watched the video yet, but wanted to comment on how kick-ass this post is! Did you notice that you said you decided to "start your business", as opposed to "acting" - and that's where the shift is. You went from doing it because you love it - & you were afraid it was going to be taken away from you if you didn't do it for free - to thinking of it as your business. And now look at you - a poster girl for working actors everywhere!
