In Episode 6, you’ll meet actor and screenwriter—and former national homebuilder superintendent—Jack Kennedy. Jack has spent the last 15 years selling himself in the most hostile sales environment in the world—Hollywood. Jack explains how, in just a few short years, he went from holding suppliers and subcontractors accountable on the job site to holding screen legend Martin Short in his arms while Short sucked Jack’s thumb.( It’s a story you have to hear to believe.) Jack acknowledges the grim reality of showbiz: the average Screen Actors Guild member lands one part for every 55 auditions. Professionally pursuing his passion undaunted, Jack shares his advice on maintaining his confidence, developing authentic relationships for the long-term with actors like Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club), the importance of constantly improving your craft, and how he stands out by simply showing up fully prepared. Enjoy my conversation with Jack Kennedy—thanks for listening!
