Everyone wants to be one of the most famous Hollywood celebrities, but only very few ever make it. Ever thought about why that was? Well in part it’s due to luck. But it also has a lot to do with your talents and how you manage them to take you all the way to the top. In fact, that is really the most vital part. So if you are looking to making it all the way to the top, read on. This is some sound advice that could help you become one of the world’s next biggest celebrities.
Decide on your talent
For some people, it’s pretty obvious that they are a great dancer, singer or actor. For others, they may have to work at the chosen skill. But whatever your situation you need to make a conscious decision as to what it is that will be your main product.
For example, a model like Naomi Campbell’s product is her body and the brand that she has built around it. While Katy Perry’s is her voice and quirky style.
Put a plan B in place
Another vital aspect when you are shooting for the stars to consider is a plan B. There are talent shows like American Idol that are full up with people that have amazing voices and skills but haven’t made it big time in Hollywood yet.
That just shows that no matter how good you are, you need a backup plan if you want to make it big. Then you will be able to support yourself on your journey or if it all doesn’t quite go to plan.
Get your product out there
Once you have your talent and plan B in place, then it’s time to do the hard graft and get your product out there. If you are a musician, comedian or magician, it can help to set up your own youtube channel with recordings of your performances. Many famous celebrities launched heir own careers this way.
Musicians or voice actors can also benefit from this free exposure. It can also help to have MP3 and CD recordings available to buy from their websites. Use companies such as Nationwide to help you produce these.
If you are an actor you might consider doing some amateur productions. This will get you some experience. Getting an agent that can put you forward for a part that they think will be suitable will help too. Whatever your chosen field just make sure you get some experience under your belt before you start aiming for the big leagues.
Never forget where you came from
It’s funny, but it seems to be pretty easy to get all ‘Hollywood” and demanding when you feel the first flush of success. But this is actually the worst thing you can do. Remember when you are famous you are your own product. You want to come across as professional and serious in your chosen field. Throwing a hissy fit because all the lilies in your rider are in the same shade of white isn’t going help.
In addition, people seem to respond really well to celebrities that are grounded. Hollywood stars that still interact with friends and communities from their life before they got famous just like Jennifer Lawrence. So don’t fight where you came from and blow your chance of stardom on the way up.
