a movie star and the steps that I’m taking. And yeah, you can join me in my journey with me if you
want to be a movie star too. Hey guys, it’s Linh Podetti here, founder of
Outsourcing Angel. It’s a recruitment company based in Australia and I’ve been an entrepreneur for a long time
and I’ve succeeded in life as a mother, as a wife. And so in this channel, I want to share with you my
experience on how you can achieve time and financial freedom, just like I have so, enjoy it. Now,

notifications when my video is up. Okay. So how do you become a movie star? Now why am I saying
this? When I haven’t even become a movie star I’ve succeeded in my entrepreneur journey. So 10 years
ago, I decided that I wanted to be an entrepreneur. And so I did
whatever I did, and I’ve succeeded. And so I’m using the same method in order to succeed in my new
ambition of becoming a movie star. So in this video, I want to share with you the strategy that I’m
using right now for myself, and you can do the same as well. And yeah, I would love for you to join in
my journey into becoming a movie star. The first thing you need to realise is purpose and passion is
built. It’s not something that all of a sudden you just wake up. Oh my god, this is me. It’s that you tried
different things, and then you become good at it. And then you realise, oh my god, I meant to do this. So let
me give you an example. I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur, not because I just was born and go,
I’m an entrepreneur. It’s because I was working nine to five, and I saw how people struggling and not
having financial freedom and having the time freedom. So then I realised that I wanted to be an
entrepreneur. But what was I going to do in business within, you know, just because I want to be an
entrepreneur, I had no idea what I wanted to do. So I just went out there and try to start a nail polish business.And I didn’t know what I was doing.
And so I learned and then, that and I realised that I like the
online business but I don’t really like the nail polish feet. And so I pursued the next business which is an
agency business. And the reason why I was able to do that is because I learned how to do outsourcing from
the first pieces. And then I fell in love with outsourcing and then I developed Outsourcing Angel as a
recruitment company, and now I’m totally in love with my business. And my whole mission and purpose
in life is to create hope and job opportunities for people around the world, you know, in developing
countries and creating freedom for other business owners to be able to build a remote team. And so the
whole point is that I didn’t know that that’s what I love and passionate for. And until I tried it until I
started to take steps. And so I want to give you an example with my movie career as well. I didn’t wake up
one day go, I’m gonna be a movie star. It was actually that I was actually a shy girl. And so I just
started doing a lot of public speaking and pushing myself out because I hated being shy. And the more I
did public speaking, and even doing video content, I became more confident with myself. And the
last year I decided to do a lot of video content, you know, on YouTube and what, and the more I did video
content, the more I felt the power of being on camera, right. If I did a video, I can reach so
many, many people and I also just got more comfortable with doing videos. And so when my daughter
was invited to do some auditions because she’s six years old and I was encouraging her to get
into this field because I thought I was too old for this thing. And so I took her to auditions and I
started to enjoy the audition process not that I like you know getting rejection, I just realised it was quite easy. You just get you know, the agent
find you the job to do you go up there and audition for like 15 minutes,
maybe 20 minutes, and then you go home and if you get the job then it’s fun. And so I just gave it a
shot and I did a lot of auditions and then I actually won an audition, so I was starred in a TV ad a year ago
and I really really enjoyed it. It was like it felt easy and calm and they treat you really nice and then
you do a shoot for half an hour and the scene was only like a few seconds. And I’m like this is so
easy and they paid you like you know thousands of dollars for it. And I was like, it started to open in
my mind that, that It’s a possibility. Oh, I can actually do this. And so I started to continue to work on myself and my mindset and what are my
limiting beliefs. And literally two months ago, I realised that I really
would want to be a movie star. Because I realised that I’ve built the confidence, and I’m really enjoying
doing videos, I really enjoy inspiring people. And if I’m in movies, I can reach more people, I can, yeah,
get my message across even more. And so the first thing I want you to realise is that whatever you’re
doing in life, and whatever you want to do, it’s something that you need to build. It’s something that
you just don’t wake up to and go, Oh my god, I’m passionate about this, oh, my God, I’m gonna do this.
And so you need to try different things before you decide on something, right? And so that’s the first
thing because sometimes people feel like, oh I don’t have a gift for this so I can’t do that because I’m
not like that. Or you can do it because you’re not shy But like I just told you, I didn’t have the skills or
the confidence in any of the things that I’ve achieved in life, as an entrepreneur, or now as a movie star, but it’s because of just giving things that go,
which led me to deciding to be something. Now the second step
that you need to do is really set your dream and goal, and really get yourself to feel that you’re going
to achieve it. There’s no point in sitting in a dream and going, Oh, I hope I get it, or I’m just going to
give it a shot. And if I don’t, I don’t. Well, you’re not going to get there. You have to really want something and put all your heart and soul into
it. Now, how to do that is really to make sure that whatever you’re
doing is for the right reason. So I want to start a business because I really wanted to have freedom to be
with my family, it means so much to me. And so there was no way out. Like I do not want to work for
anyone being a movie star. I wanted to do it because I realised that my goal is to inspire millions
and millions of people. And so that is my platform. I want to do that. And I realised that that just fit in
with my goal in life and I really wanted to do it. And so whatever your dream is, make sure that you align it
to your why and your why has to be strong. It’s not really just about money, don’t do things for money,
because you’re gonna just lose that motivation. And it’s not going to be fulfilling. You really just
want to make sure that your dream is just empowering. And once it is your dream, make sure you watch
yourself, watch your thoughts, you know, are you being positive and empowering to yourself? Or you’re having
limiting beliefs? If you say things like I hope well, I’m, you know, I showed or whatever, then you’re not
really supporting your dream, but you need to really get in and get excited about it. Now, once
you’ve excited yourself, and you told yourself, you’re going to do this, the next thing is to tell the world
so this is exactly what I did back in even 10 years ago, when I’ve never started a business, I always hope
I’m going to be successful, I’m going to be successful in business. And I’m going to you know, start an online
business and I’m going to grow it to a million dollar business. I just took so much confidence that I
wanted to tell everybody because I knew that if I told everybody that it’s it, just put things in
concrete that I’ve locked it in. That, others have heard my promise. And the last thing I want is disappoint myself or embarrass myself with others
that, you know I just said said things and didn’t do it. And so I found
that by telling other people, it just made it more real. Like, that’s it, it’s happening. And so then
yeah, that’s why the third tip for you is really to dare to actually tell your dream out loud to people. And, of course, you’re going to have dream
shooters, but use that as a leverage. When I told my dreams 10 years
ago, I had a lot of negative people. People said a lot. Even my own parents said, you’re not going to
get there. Why are you trying to do that? You know, why are you making your life difficult? You’re
not meant to be rich. You’re not meant to be this. And I was so angry, but I use that to fuel me to like,
I’m going to prove it to you watch me I want to do it. Now. So once you’ve achieved your
first dream, it gets easier. So this time that I decided to be a movie star people just became more supportive because they think that
I’ve succeeded before so now they’re like, You know what? I think you can
because you’ve done it before, and I believe in you. And so yeah, it doesn’t get harder, like it gets
easier. So even told telling my dad and my mom, that I was going to be a movie star. I for the first time, I
was so shocked. They just didn’t even say anything. I’m like, cool. Whereas before they were like, as if
you’re going to get it and they were just so negative, This time they did it. So don’t be afraid of telling
people but be prepared, tell people, let them shoot you. But use that as your fuel and fire you up and go
and get that. And then just know that once you get past that and you succeed in your first dream and first
goal, then they’re going to be more supportive in your future goals and dreams. Now, the fourth thing is
taking action. So there’s no point in talking about your dream because it ain’t going to happen unless you
actually take action and action didn’t happen immediately. As soon as I decided to be a movie star. I
downloaded, I subscribed to master class. It’s like a online education platform and I started learning
from Natalie Portman, learnt from Samuel L. Jackson and started learning from the best, right.
There’s people out there, already done what you, you’ve want. So you start learning. And so I started
learning online. And I quickly found myself courses that I can do in real life. So I know with acting, it’s
not something that you just can do online, you need to practice acting with people. So I started doing
school. So before I did that, I wrote down all the lists of things that I can think of that will take me to my
dream. And everything in life requires education, you need to teach yourself how to do something, then
you need to practice it, then you need to start applying what you learned. And then you need to build
connections. And you need to keep repeating doing doing more and more that to get better. And so as
a movie star, what I’ve started to do is I started learning online workshops from people that are
really successful who I can’t have direct access to, but they give me a lot of insights. I had joined a
course so that I could learn you know, learn real theory and practice it with my school buddies. And then
I got myself an agent because I knew that I wanted to apply what I learned in real time, the low
point in learning and never really putting it into real life because you can learn and practice with your
friends. But it’s different to when you’re going for auditions and going for a job. Because the pressure is
different. It’s more real. And so even as an entrepreneur, I know so many people who learn and learn
about marketing and business and never take the leap because they’re so scared. But what you
really need to do is learn as much as you can, but if the opportunity comes up, you go for it. You go and
see that client, you go in, do a proposal and just sell what you believe you can do. And so that’s what I
did within the last month. I was invited to a TV. What is it called US TV pilot audition. Now I said to
myself, Oh my god, I only just started learning, acting professionally this month, but I went you know
what, I’m never gonna feel ready, let’s just give it a go. Because you never know. I might meet someone
there. I might, or not might I know I’m going to learn a lesson about how to audition into in a TV,
movie. And yeah, I’m just going to learn how to prepare for it. What are they going to send me? What
scripts? And how do I actually learn that script within a day or two? Will I be able to do it? You know,
to be honest, I looked at the script and said, it’s not going to be good for me because it they said US
accent because it’s a US show, or a South Asian, South Eastern accent. I said to myself, why bother
pushing myself to learn five pages of script, and turn up to this audition and waste a few hours of my day,
when I don’t think I’m going to get it. But I didn’t let that stop me. I said, you know what, if I don’t go,
I’m a 100% guaranteed I’m going to fail. But if I win, I have 1% because it’s still 1% better than zero
percent. And so I did, within two days, I learned the script, and I realised, wow, I actually could learn
scripts really fast. Then I practiced it with my daughter and my niece, and I turned up and you know, I just spoke in an Australian accent, I thought to myself,
if they invited me for an audition, then that means they like
something about me. You never know, they might forgive me that I don’t have the US accent and then
send me off to a US accent class or willing to wait for me to learn it before the actual shoot or
something. Who knows. So I turned up to it. So, to sum it up, you really need to start with your, you know, we
started to discover your dreams and passion, right and making sure that you build and learn that okay, I
really liked this because I’ve tried all this and I realised this is for me, and then setting your dream
out loud with yourself and then letting people know really and then the action. The action is going to learn.
Practice and then start using the things that you learned immediately. Don’t care, you’re not ready, just
give it a shot. If someone invited you to, to try out a movie What about giving a go even if you’re not
ready, because you can learn on the job. You know, it doesn’t hurt to learn So that is my third
method for becoming a movie star. Actually I forgot, the last thing I was going to say is, anything in
business and anything in life like business, it’s about who you know, as well. So I’m using the same method as I
did in business and just getting out there connecting with people. So I started adding other
actors that I’ve met as a friend, I’m starting to take note of directors and casting directors names and
things so that I could, yeah, just build up that connection and, and, you know, in anything in life,
it’s really about showing up showing up. And yeah, that’s why I feel really confident in being able to
achieve my goal of being a movie star because I’ve succeeded in business before and I realised in life,
everything follows the same pattern. And so I hope you enjoy my video. If you want to be a movie star. Let
me know in the comments below because I would love to share and enjoy this process with you if
you have questions. And I might have questions for you, if you’ve done it before, and you can give me
some insight that would love to hear from you. But if you’ve learned something here today and you want
to ask me something related to business, feel free to ask me as well. So thank you so much for
watching and if you enjoyed this topic, let me know and I can continue to do more this. And of course if
you’re new to this, please don’t forget to subscribe and press the bell button for more videos. Thank you
