In 2014 when I flew to New York as a new graduate with nothing but a desire and a mighty plan to get an agent. 21 years old, wide eyed with nothing to offer but I did it, flew back home with a contract in hand and I have done it many times with 5 agents over 6 years across 2 continents and it’s not because I’m special or famous or anything you’re not… NO. It’s because I learned the art of pitching and Mastered the strategy and you need this too..
