Growing up the child of actors and being an actor myself, studying with the top teachers in New York and L.A., I never knew that right before my very eyes was a solution to the actors age-old problem of unemployment.
It's stand-up comedy. Out of all the actors in the Screen Actor's Guild, at any given time, 2 percent are working.When I discovered stand-up comedy, I learned that I could work when I wasn't 'working,' hone my ability to be present and in the moment and become fearless!
As an actor, most performing is at auditions or in acting class. And what are those scenes, 3-minutes? Auditions, 1-2 minutes?
When doing stand-up, you have a nightly opportunity to be on stage and be open to every minute inspiration that occurs for stretches of time like 5, 10 or 20 minutes?
When I started in show business, I was an actor. I had the fortunate experience of watching my Dad go through his career as an actor. There were ups and downs. Sometimes the downs were really down.
I said, "That's not gonna happen to me." Now it's one thing to say that in a matter of wishful thinking and it's another to take action. So right after I said, "That's not gonna happen to me," I said, "How can I make sure that doesn't happen to me?"
Have you ever lost a writing document on your computer after spending hours revising it? You look and look and for the life of you, you cannot find that document!
Few things are more frustrating, except...
Losing years worth of writing documents when a hard drive crashes.
Or have you ever been out and about and a friend calls and needs a copy of a revision of a document? Or a spreadsheet or a presentation? And you wind up saying something like, "I'll get it out to you as soon as I get back to my computer..."
Or have you ever wanted to collaborate on writing with someone and you get confused about sending each other drafts of each other's work and you get confused about which draft you're on or who wrote what?
Or finally... do you hate typing? Do you wish there was a way you could talk and your own personal stenographer would record it and type up all the pages and send them to you?
Well, what if I told you that I have a tool that will solve all those problems. Better yet, what if I told you that the solution was 100% free?
