Your Success Will Be Unique

A group of masterminds from Wharton came to Hollywood to study the business model, figuring they could analyze and demystify it. They applied every 'rule' of business to what they witnessed in agents' offices, pitch meetings, casting sessions, producer lunches, and studio powwows only to leave Hollywood scratching their collective business head. There is no science to the entertainment industry. That is why it's so important to remember that your path is unique. Reading about others' experiences is of value, commiserating with other actors is also of value, but none of it provides a recipe for your success

The reason why those business students couldn't figure out Hollywood has to do with the nature of the performing arts: They do not follow any business model, ever.

I may have to disagree. While performing arts are not all about business models, the millions of people who make their livings in show business are following the 'gather people together to sell them stuff' business model in one way or another.
