Many of the experts I’ve interviewed have offered to make themselves available to my members to provide support and advice. None work for free but their consulting rates are reasonable and they will respond to short, polite, emails asking for advice and rates. Always provide your phone number. I get no compensation of any kind for providing referrals. Always remember that the entertainment industry is a very small town and people remember you and how you behave. So it’s always in your business interest to be polite, professional, well-informed. Remember you can always email firstname.lastname@example.org if you run into any trouble.
