I got my first audition and asked if my shift could be changed so that I could go…they said no…so I went anyways booked the role and made more money in one pilot than I would have flipping burgers and taking out the trash in a whole year at McDickles. The lesson here…don’t ask for anyone’s permission to chase your dream. No means someone else is going to say yes, so it doesn’t matter who says no until the one saying it is you! …also I no longer eat McDonald’s”.
