  • Claim Your Space!

    by Doug Shapiro, Accelerated Artist Career Coach 


    Last week I was knocked off my feet by phenomenal talent. One of those instances in which their example paves the way to an artistry I can only hope to achieve myself one day.It wasn’t a singer belting to the rafters. It wasn’t an intimate breathtaking performance by a movie actor. It wasn’t a dancer drumming out his story through his tap shoes. It was a Human Resources manager claiming her space. Allow me to explain. I work for an excellent  Read More...

  • Steer Confrontation into a Conversation this Holiday Season!

     By Doug Shapiro


    So, your battle scars have almost healed from Thanksgiving and it’s already time to head back to the family for the winter holidays for more of the same comments: “I know you write, but what is your REAL job?” “If you’re a singer, why don’t you go on The Voice?’ “Oh, you’re the struggling actor/starving artist.” It’s time to turn this around.
