Have I told you guys that I host a podcast? I’ve been doing it for about a year now. I have had the opportunity to interview some of the coolest people in the entertainment industry. Actors. Models. Musicians. It’s a pretty sweet gig.
How did I land this gig? Well, I got connected with a company called VIP Ignite. We connect actors, models and musicians with casting directors, agents…you know…we get to help people make their dreams come true.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of nefarious people who prey on people who are willing to do anything to achieve their dreams…so we’re doing a 10 part series talking about companies who at best misrepresent what they can do for talent.
Just like everything else in life, you get what you pay for.
Last night, I had Alycia Kaback, the CEO of VIP Ignite, on the podcast…and we talked about a popular free website called Model Mayhem. If you’re a model, you probably know about them.
It seems like a good way to get some experience…I mean, every model needs more photos and looks…but it’s also a good way to come into contact with human traffickers.
And the website can’t even be held responsible. Think I’m joking? Listen to the podcast. If we were on video, you would’ve seen my jaw on the floor.
