Happy Women’s History Month!
I’m featuring inspiring business women on my blog. These ladies have been my clients and inspired me both personally and professionally.
I’m including interviews and beautiful photos from our photo shoots together. The links are NOT affiliate links. I’m simply sharing the links to their businesses because I love these ladies and can personally recommend them.
Today, get ready to be inspired by Kelly Hare. Kelly is an acting coach who guides actors through preparing scenes for auditions and she also mentors and teaches clients who are new to the entertainment business. This week one of Kelly’s clients booked one of the leads in a new Netflix TV show. Kelly coached her client through the pre-read, producer session, director sessions and testing!
Enjoy reading Kelly’s answers to my interview questions along with lots of gorgeous images from our photo shoots. Then definitely go visit Kelly’s link below.
What can you expect when working with Kelly?
“The results a client can expect from working with me are gathering a new perspective on the casting room, the scene they are preparing and the business as a whole. The results usually lead to more callbacks and bookings.”
What have been the most important factors contributing to your success?
“The fact that I was an actor and then switched to casting gives me a unique perspective on auditioning and acting. A lot of casting directors took acting in college but have never actually had to go in and audition a scene. It is a totally different animal than just being in acting class. Because I have been on both sides of the camera, I combine my acting knowledge with my casting when I coach a client.”
Any thoughts/advice/inspiration for people pursuing their dreams of being an entrepreneur and running their own business?
“I relied on word of mouth for promotional purposes in the beginning. I advise to set up a professional website and other social media for promotion. Also, keep working. Being a success takes hard work. You can't sit back and expect anyone to hand you anything.”
What are you currently working on? Where can people connect with you?
“I am always working with my clients. Recently my clients have booked series regular roles on Netflix and Guest Star roles on major shows. I always strive to help my clients improve with each audition. You can reach out to me by email: Kellylynn.firstname.lastname@example.org or on Instagram: @kellyhare1”
