Rising, shining, stronger, brighter... everyone can harness their own Star Power!
Back for a second to ground level :)
After recently attending a Star Power workshop, taught by Sande Shurin in NYC, I gained life long insight into how my dreams can form into tangible destinations - not just something to reach for.
Now, I can’t give away her workshop secrets. For that you will have to take her class (details below). Yet I will share my current plan. My 3 main passions and how I plan to get from here to the stratosphere.
Kelly Calabrese = writer, actor, creative junkie.
In defining my dream life I would envision myself as a published author, working actor and entrepreneur of a jewelry concept (I already have in 1st prototype).
This workshop helped me break down these dreams into action steps and timelines.
1st step: define dreams – DONE
2nd step: estimate how long it may take to achieve… I estimate 4 years (being optimistic, of course)
3rd step: Determine immediate next steps (within the month).
A. Create a year long time table for my two children’s books from completion to editing and submission.
B. Make a list of casting directors I need to meet over the year
C. Establish framework for my own hosting show (I interview celebrities / entertainment industry gurus) for launching my own show even if I have to post it on Vimeo.
D. Meet with a new silversmith/casting house I found in NYC which will allow me to monitor progress of my jewelry idea and ensure better communication than distant companies I have tried before.
E. Nail my 3-4 monologues so I am always ready
F. Create a year long marketing campaign idea for me to agents, CDs, etc who I already met.
Due date for all of this… June 30, 2010.
By looking at just a month’s work, and seeing the visual foundation for an entire year’s growth, I harness my star power and use the energy for active, upward momentum.
It's all very inspiring! Stay tuned for updates!
