In my modeling memoir called Almost 5'4" I highlight the good, the bad and sometimes the ugly of trying to be your own agent. After all my hustling I have come to still know that the work never ends. Just because you have a dream doesn't mean someone is going to find you and make it happen. Just because your body looks great, your energetic, upbeat and capable, doesn't mean you have it easy. Modeling is beyond beauty, it is a constant run of selling, selling and selling yourself and seeking the opportunity.
Set your goals high, but know the pit stops along the way to make them happen, nothing may happen over night, but then again sometimes do with persistance!
