The Business of Modeling

Do you want to be a model?

Do you have a passion for success?

Are you afraid of hard work?

If you answered YES to the first two questions and NO to the last… you have come to the right place.

Remember, the business of modeling isn’t just about LOOKS.

There is no shortage of pretty people, and don’t kid yourself, if you don’t take care of yourself and you are out of shape, have bad skin, already have too many activities on your schedule… then you are NOT ready to be a model.
