The digital sphere has proved that it can be an integral tool for creatives to share their work. All it takes is one celebrity to see, love, and share a breakout designer's work for the new designer to reach stardom.
Trying to make it in Hollywood as an actor or actress can prove to be an impenetrable challenge. Some people spend years auditioning and spend thousands of dollars on acting coaches just to fall short of nailing the role that they had been so eager to earn.
