Please see the Instagram Q & A Session posted by Beth on her IGTV account.
One person who inspires me is Beth Stein, Agent in Los Angeles. She reminds me of myself in many ways, and she encourages me with almost every sentence she utters.

Do the Work! Work on improving your craft every day, whether it be writing, acting, music, painting, photography, production design, etc. She wants to represent talent who are working on their craft, as do I. I have taken on new talent with ZERO knowledge of the entertainment industry because I can tell that they want it and they will work for it.
