When you think of the acting world, you don't necessarily think that an introvert would blend naturally in that environment.
But that’s not necessarily true. It’s indeed possible and comes with certain challenges —as my guest Courtney Ferguson explains in this episode.
Courtney’s childhood dream was to act. She performed in church and high school plays, studied drama at a prestigious university, and got acting gigs immediately upon graduation. But after landing some leading roles, the curtain fell on her promising career.
What happened? Courtney was living her aspiration yet was drained and distracted. She didn’t understand why and she exited stage left.
This is where the plot thickens. With time away from the stage, Courtney finally gets some answers. How does it play out? Grab a front row seat … you’re about to find out.
Courtney is an actress based out of Atlanta and New York City. She is also a graduate of Howard University with a BFA in Acting.
As an introvert in an extroverted business, it has been a struggle for her to navigate the ins and outs of the industry. Additionally, she has dealt with shyness, anxiety and stage fright!
Discovering and embracing her introversion unlocked the key she needed to truly go after her dreams and overcome the barriers that were holding her back.
She created the instagram account @introvert_actress to share her journey.
