Entrepreneurs and actors have very different job responsibilities. Even though the two professions are very different, there is a lot that can be taught to actors from entrepreneurs. Actors need to connect with people and learn how to establish long-lasting relationships with producers and directors. Entrepreneurship can help with networking for actors.
Performers fall into two categories, Equity or non-equity. Depending on which one you fall into determines what kind of performances you can audition for. Equity members are backed by the Actor’s Equity Association or the AEA. The association negotiates pay, insurance, retirement and other aspects of the job.
