How do you sift through all the useless people out their to find the good ones? Harsh? Maybe. But truthful.
So many people out their are useless for you. That doesn't mean that their lives are worthless or that I think they don't deserve to live at all, I'm not a terrible person like that... It just means that for your own personal gains, they won't have any impact. These are the kinds of people you don't want to get involved with in relation to business. Be friends with them, but don't do business with them.
The best way to get involved with people who are useful to you business-wise are those who are just as professional and hardworking as you, and who are interested in the same or complimentary things.
As an actor, someone you might want to work with would be another actor who has just as much drive as you and is willing to team up together.
But remember this: you can't go into business with your friends, even if they seem pretty responsible and they have some drive. And especially don't do it if they don't have the same interests as you and aren't in the same industry as you are. The reason is that friends will think you owe something to them for being their friend. And it can cause all kinds of business trouble.
Look out for people and if you run into someone who might be interested in working with you, don't be afraid to ask them. Together you two could create some amazing things.
