Moniqua Plante on How Health Shapes Actors, Musicians & Creatives Career Future
Hello and welcome to episode 60 of Sing! Dance! Act! Thrive!
Are you a performer or creative who just wants to feel your best on-the- daily? Yeah, me too. Great minds think alike!
As actors, musicians and creatives, we want to make an impact on the world around us. That means bringing the best of ourselves to everything we do. And we often miss the fundamental link between performing our best and feeling our best.
It is just a hard fact of the entertainment industry that our energy, our confidence, and the way we look (whatever amazing way that is ;) are huge parts of booking any job. And how you are taking care of your instrument is the biggest contributing factor in your appearance, your energy, and your mood. Your instrument is the only thing you truly have control over in this business!
Today’s guest is my friend Moniqua Plante, who is an actor most known for her guest-starring season-long arc on ABC's Nashville, and recurring guest-starring roles on shows like Drop Dead Diva, Banshee, and Southland.
Moniqua is also a Certified Health + Confidence Coach for Actors and Creatives, and she truly believes that our health and wellness directly affects everything else we do in life—especially as creative beings.
We had a wonderful conversation about her acting career, how experiences in the industry lead her to take control of her health and how she helps creatives feel good in their bodies no matter what size they are.
