Speaking from my experience breaking into the entertainment business is not easy. As the video describes it requires a lot of time, sacrifice and dedication. Currently most of my time is spent auditioning for roles. I was casted in Billy Ray Cyrus's first season of "Still The King" (hoping I am brought back for season 2) and now I am preparing for my next big role. Btw I consider every opportunity to get on camera a "big role". If this is something you think you may be passionate about or simply want to give it a shot I highly recommend it! - Jermaine Boswell

The Most Successful People Explain Why a College Degree is USELESS by Jermaine Boswell

The Most Successful People Explain Why a College Degree is USELESS. Definitely a must watch! Keep in mind, college is a viable option for many. The people you meet and networking opportunities are worth more than the degree itself. Take the time to decide if a post secondary education is right for you and if it is what is the best selection, 2 year college, 4 year, vocational school, etc.

Living in an innovative society, where new technologies require highly educated people to create them, isn’t college necessary? Nowadays, to be an employee of majority of US career fields, a bachelors is almost always required. Everyone can’t be entrepreneurs. - Camryn Granger

I think that instead of throwing the concept of school our the window, we should focus on the experience and the knowledge that we gain from school instead of focusing on good grades. - Matthew Arnold

Camryn, you are right that there are a lot of jobs that require students to get a college education, however there a growing number of opportunities that do not require it. Living in a innovative society actually creates more opportunities for people to make a living in a non traditional way where many of the times a college education is not needed. Take the many influencers who make a living on platforms like Youtube for example. What’s most important is that students be aware of the options they have and if they decide that getting a college education is in their best interest that they have a plan of execution that helps them get in and out as quickly as possible. College is more expensive now more than ever so it is very important that you make the right choice the first time around. - Jermaine Boswell

Matthew, I agree, focusing on the experience and knowledge is extremely important. Grades aren’t everything but if you are planning to go to college, getting good grades can often times determine which school you get into and the scholarships you receive. Take that into consideration. - Jermaine Boswell

This is true! - Kelly Whyte

I love this video. Great quality and very useful info! - Noah Huber-Feely

Thanks for the tips Jermaine. - Sherrie Campbell

What do you have to do to get a role for modeling in a magazine or be streamed anywhere ? - Ashley Fountain

Ashley, the best way to go about getting work is to get an agent. When casting directors, or companies are looking for actors or models they often times go to agencies first to pull from their talent. This is where the high paying jobs are. Social media is being used more to find talent for work, but having an agent is the best option. - Jermaine Boswell

My Demo Reel by Jermaine Boswell

If you want to be taken seriously as an actor, you must have a demo reel. A demo reel features short snippets of work you’ve done, highlighting your best performances. It’s a great marketing tool when being considered by agents, and casting directors. This version of my demo reel features an independent film I was cast in a few years back called, House Slave. It was directed by Prince Dominick. I was cast to play Martin, a field slave.
