Welcome to forty-ninth street, a blog encouraging positivity, growth + wellness in between gigs. We focus on what we, as actors, do to stay motivated when we are auditioning + sacrificing our sleep schedule to pursue our dream!
So… let’s start with WHY I’m starting a blog + WHAT it’s going to be about.
It will be…
A resource for inspiration, motivation + positivity.
A supportive place to share stories + learn from each others journeys.
A database of information to help actors build their website + learn the skills they need to crush the business side of things.
A collection of health + wellness tips (so we can stay healthy + work until we die).
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Hey I’m Bridgette – a musical theatre actress originally from Minnesota. However, now I sit in an audition holding room or on my fire escape in New York City!
When I moved to NYC it was an inevitable fact that I would have to get a survival job to pursue my career but I soon realized… they all really suck. Can someone just pay us to audition?
Once I realized I needed a survival job to pay the bills, I went in search of something I was equally passionate about.
I loved spending my free time designing websites for actors, so I launched Brand Bee HQ and started advertising my services to friends and cast-mates.
I loved the concept of helping my friends build a website that TRUELY represented their brand, talents + personality.
The concept of branding yourself & is exactly why I started Brand Bee and is another reason why I am expanding and growing it to forty-ninth street.
Branding yourself is so important and it starts from within. I want to create a space that encourages actors + artists to become the best version of themselves.
I have found that I learn the most about myself during the transition periods of life. So, instead of passing over them, I want highlight them!
We are our own business.
Let’s share + grow together.
p.s. I want to develop forty-ninth street into a community. I want this blog to be bigger than myself. So, if you feel passionate about something and think you could write an article that relates to life as an actor/artist, LET’S TALK I would love to collaborate with you and feature your post. Let’s support each other + help each other stay motivated on the way to our dreams! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
