Silver Linings

3 Steps to Stop Runaway Production From Ruining Your Entertainment Industry Career

It's that time of year when I reveal to you my "theme" for the year, so drum roll, please... Silver Shining Playbook.  It's three-fold; one, in that this is a year where I want to "Shine" in everything I do, two, shining silver signifies abundance to me, and three, this is the first year that I've created quite the "playbook" which includes a business, marketing AND social media plan. It also includes this newsletter which I will now be sending out once a week.  So, every Wednesday, to help you get over that hump, you can expect either a "Jess Gets Reel" like today's video, or a "Reel Answers" video, where I answer your questions. Since my year's theme was inspired by the movie, I thought today's video should be as well.  It tackles runaway production and any other obstacles that get in your way.  I appreciate all the comments and social media shares. ps. You'll get to see a bit of the "country girl" in me... Today's comes from the movie Silver Linings Playbook:
