Day 94: Met with the family of the young woman I want to do a documentary about. This meeting went very well and we almost made it through without any tears. Turns out they are already working on a documentary that is in it's infancy stage and if they decide to move forward with me then I will be collaborating with the team they already have in place. I'll be meeting with them again later this week.

Day 95: Mailed my headshot & resume along with a cover letter to 7 managers.

Day 96: Signed with Mavrick Artists Agency! I officially have commercial and print representation now. Another goal I get to cross off my list. :-) Afterwards, I had my second documentary meeting today. What was supposed to be a 1 hour meeting turned into 4 hours in the blink of an eye. Though I still need to sign paperwork to make it official, I've been verbally invited to join the production of this film. Words cannot even begin to express how thankful/excited/fired-up I am to be a part of this!!!

Day 97: Watched the documentary You Saved Me about black marriage and its' benefits. It provided a great launching pad for discussion with the ladies that I watched it with but unfortunately it felt like it was one-dimensional and lacked varying perspectives.

    Thanks T! Girl you know I made Stephen take me out to celebrate cause it's been a long time coming. :-)

  3. Congratulations on the new representation! Your hustle eternally inspires. Got some good news of my own!

    In another, possibly related note: how do you deal with bookings that intimidate you? As in "everyone else in this project has more impressive resume than I do. Am I sure they didn't make a mistake?" Losing confidence at the worst time possible :(

    Liz, I haven't booked anything where I'm working closely with actors who have a longer IMDb page than me just yet but I'm sure when the time comes that it will be humbling. Don't lose confidence just remind yourself that you were chosen for a reason and there's no one in the world who can offer your character what YOU can! Congratulations on your booking!

  5. Congratulations on the new agent!
    Your drive and proactivity is totally inspiring to the rest of us out in struggling actress land!

  6. Congratulations on getting a new agent!
