I’m Aaron Hutchinson and I’ve created the Actor’s Business Collective (ABC) as a place where creative minds can discover systems and structures to launch their talents and careers to the next level.
Although most people know me as an actor in film and television for the past 20 years, I am also a trained personal life coach, and real estate entrepreneur.
What I’m really good at is helping people overcome any overwhelming obstacle, by breaking it down into clear achievable steps, leading to courageous new results.
The ABC is my way of sharing this knowledge and training with other artists dedicated to being the best they can be professionally.
A little about how I got here…
Throughout the years I have, without a doubt, experienced all of the frustrations and struggles every actor faces. I’ve stood in the shower and had the same all too familiar imaginary arguments with myself:
“How much longer do I have to work this stupid restaurant job?”
“Why does it seem like everyone I know is auditioning but me?”
“Am I ever going to catch my BIG break?”
I was so confused. I was doing everything I was taught in school. I was in acting class, I had the agent, I was auditioning, yet for some reason it wasn’t enough. I was exhausted, unfulfilled and unhappy.
In 2006, searching for more out of an acting career, I began training as a Personal Development Coach. With initial skepticism, the results I began creating surpassed my acting goals and anything I ever thought possible:
Through coaching other established professionals I realized a common occurrence: they didn’t need me. They chose to work with me because they wanted to achieve an even HIGHER LEVEL of success. They wanted to overcome their specific obstacles and I was skilled at helping them attain new results.
Ultimately, my acting career was still the most important thing to me. After years of just hoping and waiting for a break, I finally realized what it was going to take. New results called for new actions. I began applying my experiences as a business operator and personal coach, through an artistic lens, leading to the most successful and fulfilling year of my creative life. I shifted from being an actor to becoming an actor-preneur.
I love working and surrounding myself with artists because they are passionate about their dreams. Actors are my community, and I’ll continue to help them achieve their highest professional level. I believe everyone should have the opportunity and courage to tell their unique story.
