NEW YORK-- the city of opinions!

I love how diverse we are here. So many walks of life coming from and moving to so many different things. It's what makes this city so exciting and special.

But along with that-- comes lots of OPINIONS.

It's important to get feedback on our work and to expose ourselves to thoughts on how we can grow and improve. But what if you are getting multiple opinions and they are all DIFFERENT? Then what do you do?

We are all a different flavor-- and each different flavor isn't necessarily right for each person. That doesn't mean you are a BAD flavor.

When receiving critiques on your work-- I suggest answering the following questions to yourself.

1) Is this something worth exploring? Something I COULD try?
2) How can I view this feedback in the most positive light?
3) What is that person's background in this industry-- and how might it have tailored their feedback?
4) Am I truly open for growth and learning opportunities?
5) Am I remembering that this is feedback on my performance and not on me as a person?
6) Have I heard this more than once?
7) Is this something I should just let go? Or something to keep?

Perfection doesn't exist in this industry-- but growth certainly does. Approach your work and your feedback with an open mind, and look for suggestions that resonate with you AND challenge you. It's ok to make choices and it's ok to stick with them. It's also ok to explore new approaches. There isn't a single road---- its a great big choose your own adventure as you figure out the best way to achieve your goals.

After all-- you are the CEO of your own acting business-- and at the end of the day-- you ultimately report to YOU.

So you better be making your boss proud.
