Minding Your Own Business

You may be setting your sights on getting top-tier attention and gigs. And that’s great. But you can probably start your journey closer to home and start building up your portfolio, clips reel, press mentions, and resume. Success breeds success, and becoming a big fish in your local pond can take you all the right places, while actually putting money in your pocket along the way. Blogger Janis Elspas moderates the conversation with Darya Pino, Jaden Hair, and Lindsay Ferrier, who will talk about how they have leveraged their blog to get regular features on local TV and regular columns for local publications. Nothing bolsters a portfolio like a regular paying gig, after all!
