Do you want to leave a 9-to-5 job and move to LA to act? Ryan Kolbe did, so he wrote an article to help you succeed.

My intent with this article is to inform people who are thinking about transitioning from a “stable, 9 to 5 job” to an acting career in Los Angeles of the expectations they should set for themselves in going through the process.

We become actors and lose our voice? What’s that all about?
If there is one theme that seems to run through all the questions I’ve received from actors more than any other, hands down, is fear to use our voice.
