What a lovely accolade. This week we found out that B.A.B.E. has been awarded top 20 acting blogs on the planet! Whoop whoop! The planet…that feels like quite a big deal. This makes us feel all warm and fuzzy…just like when you secretly pee in the shower (kidding! sort of). So without further ado, here’s...
A baby arrives and just like that, my life is turned upside down. I’m awake when I should be asleep, sleeping when I would normally be happily awake. I fall asleep almost instantly if I’m horizontal, and I was already a good sleeper. Otto is my world now (well at least full time for the...
So far today I’ve walked past 3 people who nearly plowed into me because they had their heads down while they walked to look at their phones. And they weren’t even casually checking the direction they were walking in. They were 100% engrossed in their “phone business”. And as I walked off I wondered, what...
Yes you guessed it…this B.A.B.E. writer and acting coach is having a wee baby! Crazy days ahead for me and baby daddy. And the lovely folk at Honest Actors were kind enough to invite me to talk more (honestly) about what this means for me. Have you been considering having a baby yourself? Are you...
Yep, spread it out and don on your diva garments like the Hollywood wannabees you are. It’s one of my pet peeves and it happened again in a casting last week. I was waiting quietly for my turn to be called in, and had put my handbag underneath the seat and filled out the clipboard...
Beautiful people saying wonderful things
My mentoring session with Angela has definitely been an important step in forwarding my career. Angela has a great understanding of the craft of acting as well as the business side of the industry. In a short period of time, she's helped me visualize and pinpoint my strengths instead of focusing on how hard this business is. She has taught me not to be ashamed of ambitions, to aim high but be realistic and take the reasonable steps towards achievable goals. She's also a lot of fun which I think is fundamental in a coach, especially because acting and everything about acting should be fun! Do get in touch with her and let her guide you. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Such is the influence that Angela Peters will have on you. An inspiring and motivating woman that radiates Melinda Lee Harvey positivity. She helped me believe in myself and taught me that I can aspire to great things – things bigger than my body represents, bigger than the town I live in and a lot more than my heart could imagine. It is through her non-judgemental and humble approach to life that she leads by an example you want to follow… I did. Through work and personal challenges, Angie guided me, but let me make the decisions for myself, and to trust my own choices. She has a gift to be able to teach, coach, guide and lead… as well as a genuine love of helping people.
I really value our chats because you offer a perspective I don’t get from other actors. And it’s really grounding.
Having Angela Peters as an industry mentor has resulted in me understanding the industry from a business perspective. This in turn has allowed me to quantify my strengths and weaknesses, successes and failures, profits and loss – and consequently has made me better at the *business* of being an actor. Angela’s insights inspire and focus you in equal measure, and stem from her 1st hand knowledge of how to get ahead in the business we call ‘show’. Highly recommended for neophytes and seasoned pros alike.
I would like to say a big thank you to Angela for all of her help, and the opportunities she has given me. After only 10 days of being here (Australia), I have made contacts the likes of which would have taken me years to make myself. A genuine person who loves what she does and loves to see other people do what they love.
