Ep 2: It’s a Marathon Not a Sprint with Actor Natalie Cañizares

This week I chat with my friend and actor Natalie Cañizares. Natalie is a former dancer and health coach but made the leap to acting when she found herself feeling like things weren’t working. We chat about everything from treating acting as a marathon and not a sprint, how to balance social media, handling rejection, pivoting from one career to another, and the pressure of aging in Hollywood.

Ari Johnson Podcast Host

Hi there! I’m your host, Ari Johson (that’s airy like the air!) I’m so happy you’re here. Plot twist – I’m here because I don’t know the secret. So I started chatting with badass creatives including actors, directors, and film folks, to figure out how they did it – what their magic sauce to fulfillment is, and well, it got pretty interesting. So I thought I’d share it with you.
