OTR Angel- What advice do you have for other models looking for their start in this difficult industry?
Tori Grace- Find what you want to do. Stick with it and don’t deter from it no matter what anyone says! Don’t sign up for a manager unless you’re getting gigs booked. Also, do not subscribe to management if that manager’s network is not as vast as your own. Look for a team that follows instruction, if your potential manager does not follow directions, do not hire them.
