SACRIFICE. When you want to achieve anything in life no matter what profession you choose, you have to put aside any form of vanity, entertainment or distraction.

We had the distinct pleasure to interview actress and anti-bullying activist, Farrah Krenek.

Thank you so much for doing this with us Farrah! Our readers would love to get to know you a bit better. Can you tell us the story of how you grew up?

I’m always flattered, more surprised when I’m asked about my past… For some reason when I was living it…


Do everything out of love, rather than from fear. This one is easy and difficult at the same time. Ask yourself the question with everything you do: “Am I acting out of fear or out of love?” If you feel tension, there is most likely fear. Discover it, investigate it, learn how to be a giant in honesty towards yourself. This will help you to become aware of your patterns of fear and decide when that fear is helping you to avoid one of the few things in life that may be a threat or whether it is just holding…

You can 100% unapologetically be yourself. In the acting world, you’ll feel like you have to fit into what people want and be the image that others want you to be. However, you will truly only be happy, prosperous, and successful when you are being yourself. The roles made for you and your path will come your way and you won’t have to change who you are in order to be successful. Acting is the art of stepping into other people’s shoes with their characteristics, but bring a little of yourself…


If you truly believe in a song, fight for it. Our single, “Hey Whiskey,” was shot down by our former label head. We were told it would never work on country radio, and that no one would ever get it. So we gave up on it for almost 2 years, even though we loved it!!

I recently had the pleasure of sitting of interviewing SmithField, a rising duo in the country music genre. Both from musical families in Texas, they’re now getting ready to release a brand new EP. …


Get a Life! It was hard for me to stay optimistic while I was tray passing hors d’oeuvres at events every weekend. I had to learn how to enjoy that part of the journey as well. As soon as I did, I started connecting with guests at these private events that I never would’ve been invited to. At a WB event, I met a director who I made laugh all night. He booked me in a CBS pilot less than a year later and I didn’t have an agent or manager.

Cherish real relationships. Family and my true friends are so important to me. This world can be a crazy place, but having those people who you love and trust to always be by your side is so special. This industry is surprisingly small and you meet a lot of people, but when you have your true people in your life, don’t ever let them go.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Sophie Reynolds. Known for her role on the Disney XD series “Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything,” Sophie is currently promoting her role as a series regular on the…


Always Assume Good Intentions- So often, we react to the words of others from a defensive place. In a time when so much of our communication happens through texts and emails, this can lead to catastrophic miscommunications. If we instead start from assuming someone meant well or that their tone was kind, we can either avoid these mistakes or only end up in conflict when there is actually a need for one.

As part of my series about “individuals and organizations making an important social impact”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Kryss Shane.

With over 25 years of experience…


Make time for personal development: We’re all so busy and it’s easy to get carried away by your work. There was a time when I was constantly dealing with global issues that I had little time to think about myself. I think it’s critical that you set aside time for yourself to pursue your personal interests. The satisfaction you derive from your hobbies can also help you grow professionally as well. Now that I’ve made time to read books, I’ve been able to both enjoy learning something new while gaining knowledge that can better inform my work.

I had the pleasure to interview Agnes Azria. Agnes is a 20-year-old singer/songwriter from Los Angeles. She released her debut music video for her new song ‘The Beauty Myth’ on September 18th. The video is inspired by Naomi Wolf’s book The Beauty Myth, which argues that beauty is the last belief system that keeps male domination intact. Her sound is soulful and powerful and blends jazz and pop influences. Agnes grew up surrounded by the…
