Ok dolls, in this post I am going to keep it 100% REAL! The life of a model is not as glamorous as it may seem for starters new models do not know where to begin and others get scammed into doing things. ‘Learn to read between the lines’. I honestly wish there was someone like me for every new model starting out! But, honestly people are just selfish in today's society. No-one wants to teach the knowledge of the industry. Fortunately, when I started modeling I was able to get signed at an early age. I signed with Elite Model Management in Chicago, and in another post I will focus primarily on the pros and cons with agencies.
Girls ask me all the time what is the true life of a model? Honestly SIS, its hard. A model has to stay a certain weight to keep getting bookings. A model has to keep updating her portfolio. A model has to recognize competition, because new models are always being discovered. A model has understand rejection. And If you are blessed to be signed your agent constantly checks your measurements. While all of that is going on you better have another job, because you are not making money until you land that BIG JOB! WHY? because it's expensive to keep a model wardrobe, shoe bag, basic grooming and paying for your comp cards. This is why I teach model 101 in my webinar sessions so aspiring models can learn the tools on how to be successful. To learn more SIGN UP HERE.
