Looking to Build a Modeling Career? Follow These Steps!



It seems like there has never been so many good-looking women fighting for the spotlight like there is today. More and more women (and men) are exercising regularly, eating healthy, paying attention to their looks and image and almost all of them have a good chance at becoming the next big thing. Yet, to become the “It girl” you need to have that certain “it” factor. If you feel like you’ve got the spark, then follow these advice and increase your chance at getting noticed by a modeling scout!


1. Know who you are and where you belong
Depending on the area you live in, there will be certain trends that are more popular than others. With modeling, there isn’t just one look scouts are after. This usually depends on the area, region, city/town… So, unless you are planning on taking over New York and only New York, adjust to the trends of your local community. Not everybody is after androgynous look like people from high fashion. For instance, some agencies are looking for a natural look (this is usually in suburban areas) – the more natural, the better. If you feel your look doesn’t fit the area you live at and you don’t want to change your image, consider moving or traveling back and forth.

2. A good agency is half the job done
When you are with the good agency, you are half way to your dream job. There are scouts and agents that will give their best to find you a job, and quicker than you may have imagined. But, make sure you don’t get tricked and sign with someone shady and unfair. The rule is that a fair agency shouldn’t take any money upfront nor they should give everyone a chance. So, before signing, ask around about the reputation of a certain agency. An important thing to remember – an agency should never ask you to put yourself in a compromising or a dangerous situation.
3. Know what you are getting yourself into
Most girls think that modeling is all glitz and glam. Far from it! Especially if you are not with the right agency. Some agencies will try to put you into weird situations where you’d be asked to sacrifice your integrity, morals, what you believe in for the sake of photos, a runway or a minor booking. Decline such offers. 

Also, be ready to work hard, sometimes day and night. Once your career starts you’ll be asked to stay long hours, adjust to needy, compulsive, crazy, unpleasant people from the industry just to get the right look they want. You’ll have to spend hours traveling for just a couple of shots, you’ll have to cut your hair, color it, do this, do that – it’s a lot of work! Sometimes, you’ll have to stay on a set 8-12 hours or even more.

4. Get some practice
So, this is how you picture it – you enter a modeling agency, do a few twirls and get signed. It sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well, that’s because it is too good to be true. Remember that you are not the only person after the job, there are approximately 10-20 people after that same job you are chasing, especially in modeling agencies Melbourne that are recently on their highest. So, you need to do something, be something outstanding. To better your chances at getting signed:
·         get some coaching on the way to walk and act on the runway
·         get coaching on how to act and pose in front of the camera
·         get a personal trainer and dietitian to get you and keep you in shape

With these tips you hopefully have a clearer image of what to expect out of this modeling business. Remember that you have to constantly work on yourself, to better in every aspect and become the best version of yourself. But, don’t pretend to be something you are not. Nobody will want to hire you or will even notice you if you are faking it. The industry is after individuality, persona, that special unique spark. So, let your inner self glow and catch attention of those who can help your dream come true!

Technology Trends for 2015: Help Your Small Business Flourish!



As the business evolves, it requires technology to support its evolution and growth. It’s easy for large company to adopt any new technology because big companies already have a significant budget at their disposal. But, when we talk about small businesses, there is always more at stake, hence wise planning and smart decisions are an absolute must. It is of great importance to think well about the type of technology to adopt and which technology trend to follow in order to achieve business goals.

With so many technologies available, it is hard to decide which one to opt for. Small businesses are always at risk in adopting technological advancements too late, which can have a significant long term impact on a company’s business plan.

In this article we’ll try to advise you about technology trends that must be considered in 2015 in order to keep up with the market and to give your small business company its piece of pie. It doesn’t mean that all of following technologies must be adopted immediately but it can’t harm to try and focus on important technology trends.
 
Business Technology
Mobility
As the number of mobile device users grow every day, fulfilling the requirements of mobile users has to be the one thing worth of paying attention to. It is, of course, a new set of challenges for IT organizations due to a variety of mobile devices and almost every client (present or possible) must have a positive experience.
 
3D printing
3D printing
Since 3D printers market is growing, it will soon reach the point where most 3D printers will be available at low prices. Using 3D printed models will reduce the costs by improving the design of the product, easier prototyping and easier manufacturing of the product.

Analytics
Analytics is very important in every business. It helps business grow in the right way. Wrong analytics can easily shut down the business and that is not what you want. Managing the way of filtering enormous amount of data collected from everywhere (mobile devices, social media and so on) and deliver it to the right person at the right moment is the goal you are looking to achieve. Analytics have to be deep, but invisible to the end user.

Moving to the cloud


Lots of computers, servers and other network equipment are part of the past for most of the companies nowadays. They all moved to the cloud server/client computing providing lowering the costs for computer equipment. Cloud server/client computing provides also on-site work. Limiting factor for this is bandwidth costs, so at this moment it is affordable to run coordination and management based on the cloud.

Backup and recovery
Every collected data that is well analyzed should be treated as business asset, not only as data because it has its value. For that reason it should be backed up safely and it has to have an option of fast recovery from anywhere. For that purpose it is a smart decision to backup your data in the cloud. It is cheaper than to have all the infrastructure needed for backing up and recovering data. As it’s said earlier, limiting factor is bandwidth costs so you have to decide which data are valuable and which aren’t.

Security awareness
Since you consider moving up in the cloud, the risk of reaching your business data is higher but most companies that offer cloud services have efficient security software and guaranties for security of data. This doesn’t set you free from implementing security policies and procedures inside your company. Every employee must be aware of risk of giving sensitive data (like passwords) to uncertified third party than can lead eventually to valuable data leaking. Education of employees is very important, too.

Beside the modern technology, some documents must be hard copied. Keeping valuable documents on the desk or in the desk drawer isn’t recommended. It is advised to keep them in the office safe. Variety of affordable office safes can be found nowadays on the market. Nowadays the number of small business companies grows every day since the most of small businesses can be lead from home offices in order to lower initial costs so this may just as well be the period for your business to flourish.

These are some technology trends that shouldn’t be ignored in 2015, and it’s up to you which one of them will you first adopt according to company’s business plan and budget.
