Failing Up: How to Take Risks, Aim Higher, and Never Stop Learning
by: Leslie Odom, Jr.
This book is a very quick read. While meant to be inspirational, it is a story of one person’s journey in the pursuit of a fulfilling career. The personal stories are relatable, especially the conflicts between parents and students. The biggest takeaway from the book is to question yourself, what have you done today in moving forward towards your goals. I would highly recommend this book, not just for those in pursuit of a career as an actor, but for anyone who is in pursuit of any goal!
