Episode Info:

Kristine Oller guides successful creative professionals through the process of designing and aligning the next chapter of their lives and careers – always with an eye towards helping them expand their brilliance and increase their resilience.

She is here to discuss a rather tricky topic for creatives: having enough money to really pursue your career. Sure you can get that stereotypical job waiting tables, but is that really going to fuel you, or stress you out more? What would it look like to have a truly amazing side business that gave you the resources you need (and more) to fully pursue your dream, and to lose the desperation of needing to book a role to make rent?

And Kristine was in this exact position: working jobs that drained her, and she found something else that helped her thrive.

Yes, she does have a course (link below), but this is not an hour-long sales pitch; we don't even mention the course! This is a fun and important conversation about how to sustain yourself as a creative until you get your next break, and the one after that and the one after that!

Just a bit of what we DO cover:

  • Her journey as an actor and beyond
  • Finding her first side biz and pursuing it
  • How that gig made her a better actor at auditions
  • Stories that artists tell themselves that keep them AWAY from cash
  • Why it's unhealthy to hear stories of being down to your last dime before your "big break"

I hope you enjoy this conversation and this experiment—I’d love to hear what you think about this kind of episode, if it’s helpful, and if you’d like to hear more like it. Reach out to me on Twitter @theworkngactors, or if you prefer, you can send an email here.
