It is such an honor to have you exploring our website. I’d like to share with you the foundation of our organization. Thanks to our board of directors, panelists and industry friends, thousdands of participants from around the world have attended our various educational networking events.

XXXXBReaKiNG iNTo HoLLyWooD is all about T4...Talent, Team, Timing and Tenacity. However, if you have the talent (understanding of your craft and the business) and the team (mentors and friends who provide assistance and accountability), but you give up before the timing (preparation meeting opportunity), you will not experience your dream. Therefore, tenacity (never quitting) is the most important factor in a showbiz career.

XXXXAs artists in pursuit, we must cherish every aspect of our journey. The ups and the downs; they make us stronger and prepare us for the success or as I prefer to say, the progress ahead. So, don’t drive yourself crazy trying to figure out things on your own, join our organization today and let’s achieve our dreams together!

P.S. Support our organization by donating $5 or more today!

With great enthusiasm,

Angela Marie Hutchinson
