The New Business of Acting
by Brad Lemack
In an expanded and updated follow up to his popular, first book, The Business of Acting: Learn the Skills You Need to Build
the Career You Want, talent manager Brad Lemack offers both young, new-to-the-business and working actors a vital
perspective on the changing landscape in which they seek to launch and grow (or to reinvent) their professional careers.
The New Business of Acting: How to Build a Career in a Changing Landscape teaches actors how to be smart, proactive and
strategic throughout their career journeys.
Lemack teaches actors the critical, non-performance skills they need to build the careers they want and how to apply
those skills in positive, professional and productive ways.
The new book explores the revolution taking place in how business is conducted and how those dramatic
changes impact how actors must conduct the business of their careers.
Private Coaching with Brad
These limited-availability, private, one-on-one Business of Acting coaching sessions provide an opportunity for the exploration

along with an opportunity to review and revive his or her branding and marketing materials.
No question is off limits. The end-result is an Action Plan list of proactive “to dos” to refresh the page on wherever they are
along their journeys at this particular point and be able to confidently move forward right away.
