24. Budgeting for acting - How much money to spend monthly

It’s demonstrates some serious foresight by just doing the math and figuring out how much it’s going to cost you monthly on your acting education in Los Angeles.  Whether you have a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from Emerson College (unfortunately I don’t either) or if you are just naturally skilled at acting in the moment (I’d like to think I am), in either case, you will need to devote a certain amount of money to acting technique, cold reading, scene study, or casting workshop classes.  You also may have monthly fees for submission and acting profile websites.  Do the math.  Budget for the amount that you will need.  Cap your amount. Make sure you spend that amount, but don’t go over it.
