How to Make Money as a Performer
This talk is designed to help performers stand out from the crowd, create their own work and earn the money they deserve.
In today’s world, you have to work ‘smart’ not just ‘hard’. Being a performer in the industry is no longer just about performing, and unfortunately success doesn’t just fall into your lap.
If you’re happy working long hours, earning a low wage, in a coffee shop, bar or call centre just because it’s ‘flexible’, then we are here to change your mindset and explain how you can create your own work that gives you more time and more money to spend on your actual career.
Ambitious Arts has helped thousands of creatives refocus, think outside the box and build a lifestyle they’re proud of.
Ricky Fox, one of the masterminds behind Ambitious Arts, has a long, well-established performing background that has stood the test of time. Their company goal is to inspire performers to build successful careers and earn the money they deserve.
Looking to gain financial security whilst furthering his acting career, Ricky and fellow drama school graduate Tommy started the phenomenal children’s entertainment empire ‘Captain Fantastic’ a decade ago.
Now employing over 40 actors, they have their own cartoon, music album and branded merchandise. Captain Fantastic has won several awards and is proudly ranked ‘The UK’s no. 1 children’s entertainment company’. Now running as a successful franchise, they host a whopping 2500 parties a year alongside launching their new Wellbeing & Mindfulness courses in schools and nurseries.
As well as running Ambitious Arts, Ricky also runs UKDC, one of London’s premier Latin dance schools in Camden, with its own clothing brand and worldwide podcast.
