#25 Erin Michele Soto : Focus On Who You Want To Be
Actor and comedian Erin Michele Soto came to LA with a plan: She was going to make a living off dancing and acting. But an accident shook up her life plans as she had to quit dancing altogether, a devastating news that lead her to a really dark place. Coincidentally, that event is also what made her realize a few things about herself: Although she liked dancing, the reason she wanted to do it professionally was not that she had a passion for it... She just knew how to make money off of it, had done it before, and saw it as a potential stable source of income. Meanwhile, she saw acting completely differently. She was doing it out of passion and nothing else. Her conclusion was simple: she would now focus on doing that thing she loved, and occasionally try whatever seemed like a fun thing to do... Like stand-up for example!
That's why she and I talked about how she started comedy, how she realized her passion, made projects like her YouTube Webseries come to life, won best actress at Film Fest LA... And tons of other interesting topics!
