…an extension of Protocol Models on the Gulf—designed to assist those who are “just getting started in the business.” Although I spend a tremendous amount of time counseling models & actors, there are never enough hours in a day to reach and teach everyone face-to-face. We ALL lead busy lives, and the use of technology has now become a necessity in order to succeed. If you need a helping hand to become an accomplished model, Modeling Career Coach is your greatest resource. The good news is, “it doesn’t take long to get ready” IF you are willing to set some goals and are determined to work hard!
Not everyone can become a model. Are you surprised to find out that modeling is NOT a club that you join? You must be invited in.
Agents are in charge and decide who will get an invitation. But don’t let that discourage you. You CAN prepare yourself for success, rather than failure.
First, you must become physically fit before submitting to an agency. What do models look like? Why them & not you?
Much is expected of you. You are required to have skill, knowledge & business savvy, because models are the owners of their own business, and “we have standards.”
Early in my career, I naturally assumed that those who aspired to become a model were paying attention. It wasn’t true then, and it’s not true now. Many model hopefuls are clueless about our industry, and I don’t want you to be one of them. Don’t even THINK about applying to an agency until you are READY.
NO amount of dollar’$ spent on modeling will guarantee that you will be signed by an agent. You must be physically ready for an agent to be interested in you. Are you? Do you know anything about the modeling business? Do not feel embarrassed if your answer is no, because most people know very little. Have you mastered basic print modeling skills? No? Don’t worry. They really ARE basic, and you can learn them quite easily with a little practice at home. It’s easy. I can help!
—Do your legs need toning?
—What about those abs?
—Is your hairstyle chic?
—Should you lose a few pounds?
—Are you wearing braces or need them?
—Do you look & dress like a model?
NEVER apply to an AGENCY if you’re NOT ready!
If something needs work, FIX it FIRST.

Protocol Models on the Gulf is always excited to meet model & actor hopefuls. However, please understand that this IS a business, and while a “great look” might get your foot in the door, success in our industry requires much more. That’s why our motto has always been…
