Greetings Everyone :)
I hope you are all very well . . .
Tonight at 7pm I'll be addressing how to avoid being cheated or scammed in Hollywood. The truth is, almost everyone who works here runs into someone who "isn't as advertised" and ends up losing lots of time and money. The stories I've heard from senior execs about the frauds they've survived are hysterical, especially when they are told in big fancy offices filled with awards.
I created this workshop because Writers, Actors, Producers and other Skilled entertainment industry pros are simply more at risk for being exploited than those who work in other industries:
- We all do more deals in a year than others do in a lifetime.
- We are all sell scripts, books, and films it has taken years to create, or skills it's taken us years to acquire.
- We must take calculated risks to move our careers forward or they simply will not progress.
- And our industry, our city, is a magnet for people who want to work with beautiful, talented, high net worth people on high value projects. These delusional and/or predatory people who have a knack for exploitation are all over Los Angeles and all over the Entertainment Industry because that is where we are . . . .
One can love both the town and the industry while understanding that it's quite possible to lose many thousands of dollars (or hundreds of thousands of dollars), your best work, and many years of your life by making bad deals with bad people.
Tonight's workshop covers strategies and tools you can use to protect yourself, your family, your work, your creative collaborators, and the teams you work for going forward. It's a critical strategic primer for doing business in Hollywood.
