Tip Tuesday – Balance

#TipTuesday is a series MAX Agency — one of the top Toronto talent agencies  — does every week where we share helpful tips for the industry. This could be tips on auditions, bookings, beauty, fashion and more!

Maintaining a balance in life can be difficult when times get busy.  Especially if you are pursuing a career in the talent industry, your schedule can get hectic. 

Below are some amazing tips on maintaining balance from Success:

1. Assess your life as it is now.

Looking at ourselves as we really are is the first step in restructuring our lives. Do you feel physically exhausted, mentally stagnant or find yourself without close relationships? Would you call yourself a workaholic? Do you feel a lack of spiritual alignment? If you answer yes to any of these questions, your life is probably out of balance.

2. Make a conscious decision to become balanced.

Choosing reality as our basis of decision is the second step to becoming balanced. Achieving balance allows us to reach our goals and our purpose in life while creating less stress to do so. A conscious decision to change is now in order.

3. And make that decision on a minute-to-minute schedule.

We are all instant forgetters. Remember all those resolutions you made way back in January? Renewing our decisions on a daily, minute-to-minute basis allows us to ease into change, instead of expecting things to change overnight.

4. Set goals in every area of your life.

Set realistic goals in all areas of your life to assist yourself in remembering that your ultimate goal is balance. Your goals should cover:

• Your relationships
• Your physical being
• Your spiritual alignment
• Your mental development
• Your job
• Your finances

5. Be willing to take the risk.

Being willing to assess ourselves and take the risk to change will not only enhance our lives, but you will feel more energy and an expanded awareness of what life is all about. Acknowledging that balance is essential and recreating your life to encompass your decision is worth all the risk.

6. Make time to reassess yourself on a daily basis.

None of us can really know how well we are doing with change in our lives unless we are willing to reassess our position. Don’t feel that your decisions are made in concrete; if something feels that it isn’t working, be willing to look at a new decision. Make time for yourself every day, in a quiet meditative state, to relax and “check yourself out.”

Talent Showcase Saturday – Iann A.

Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at MAX Agency —  a successful Toronto acting agency representing men, women and children.

 

This week we’ll be showcasing an extremely talented member of our roster – Iann A! 

 

His Beginnings

I grew up in Montreal. My mom is Québecquoise and my dad is Mexican. When I was 20 I decide to go study acting in Vancouver. Fast forward some years and here I am in Toronto.

 


“How did you get into modelling/acting?”

I kind of decided on a whim to study at Vancouver Film School. It was also a good excuse to move to Vancouver. But I quickly realize that I love it and unfortunately there nothing else I would rather do.


His Experience with MAX Agency

My experience has been pleasant so far. It’s nice to be part of a bigger agency with so many people working together towards a common goal.

Extracurriculars 

With the little spare time I have. I try to stay healthy and in shape. I watch a lot… probably too much tennis. I wish I could play more but all my playing partners moved away. I also read a lot.

His Dream Role

In a drama, for sure! Or a rom-com! And I would want to play the antagonists. Bad guys roles for sure. I just find there is more to do with those types of role. Plus the bad guys always have more fun.



“Best advice for someone looking to get into the industry? or best advice you’ve received?”

The best advice I received is just to stick with it. There is a lot of rejection in this field. That’s just the way it is, but you can’t take personally. You just have to remember that you’re doing this because there is nothing else you would rather do. If I am not acting I just find something is missing in life.

Tip Tuesday – The Power of Positivity

#TipTuesday is a series MAX Agency — one of the top Toronto talent agencies  — does every week where we share helpful tips for the industry. This could be tips on auditions, bookings, beauty, fashion and more!

 

A positive mind-frame is necessary for any line of work, especially the talent industry!

 

 

While acting and modelling may be daunting at times with auditions, etc., positivity towards yourself and your talent is important.

 

Here are some tips to maintain a positive mind-frame! 

1. Self-Affirmations

Use positive language!  Reinforce positivity within by using verbal language to encourage yourself.  Talk to yourself in the mirror, even if you feel silly, with statements like, “Today will be a good day” or “I’m going to be awesome today.” You’ll be amazed how much your day improves.  This can be incredibly beneficial before auditions to set your mind frame right! 

 

2. Focus on the Present

I’m talking about the present—not today, not this hour, only this exact moment.  While preparation for any audition or casting is important, to alleviate unnecessary stress, focus on the “now”.  By focusing on the present, you hold the power to eliminate negative thoughts brought on from worrying, being stressed, etc.  As #1 states, use self-affirmations to stay in this zone of the present.  

Many of the most successful models today have been through exactly what you’re going through. Everybody (models or not) starts somewhere, and for many models, this “somewhere” is the often challenging road to getting scouted, discovered, and hired as a model.

 

3. Turn Failures into Lessons

Within any line of work, there will be some stress.  Look on the bright side of any experience.  Use any mistakes as lessons to push forward and improve!  Reminding yourself to not sweat the small stuff is so important to move forth.  While you may not be able to go back in time, you hold the power for your future – you can only go up!
