Most people don’t think of Hollywood celebrities as entrepreneurs. But Craig Archibald, founder of The Archibald Studio, is not most people.
A well-established acting coach, Craig has mentored talents including Eric Roberts, Dan Futterman, John Slattery, and Constance Wu. One of the first lessons he drills into his clients’ minds is that acting is a highly competitive business, and if they are going to succeed, they need to excel as entrepreneurs.
But get this, Craig also recommends that business owners study acting to improve their financial performance.
Craig is the author of the new book, The Actor’s Mindset: Acting as a Craft, Discipline and Business. He joins host and award-winning author Dean Rotbart to explain the fascinating Hollywood-Business connection.
And be sure to keep your ears open for cameos by Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, George Clooney, and the Greek philosopher, Aristotle.
