Competitors walked away from this event with direct connections into the Entertainment Industry (talent agents, casting directors, publicists, celebrities contact info), packed gift bags from Bulubox.com, Jenny Karl Makeup Agency, Kandy Wrappers, walked a top-class runway attended by full Hollywood paparazzi, celebs, pageant queens, etc, Hollywood Pool party networking event which was beyond successful as I saw the Hollywood agents cutting deals left and right, and a connection to Model & Fitness – an organization which will support them as their careers grow.
My measure of success: Was I was able to create real Entertainment industry opportunities for those who competed? My answer is A RESOUNDING YES! I’m so proud of each one of you who rocked that runway like Pros and took a leap of faith to be a part of our inaugural event. This was a unique event where your placing wasn’t as important as it was that you got out in front of the Industry market makers who are extremely hard to reach, connected with them visually and in person, and wrote your meal ticket into the Entertainment Industry.
Simply getting on stage is not enough to become a real model, but getting all of the right people into one room with the same business mindset is.
