EXIT STAGE RIGHT: The Career Change Handbook for Performers (publication date: today, November 28, 2012)  is the first book written specifically for actors, singers, and dancers, to provide comprehensive solutions for  breaking through a career plateau, finding a better support career, or creating a completely new career -- in any industry.  A former performer herself, author Ciara Pressler explains how she transitioned careers successfully and shares her principles of smart career strategy. 

EXIT STAGE RIGHT features interviews with career transition experts, career consultants, business coaches, and performers who have successfully navigated a career transition both within and out of the entertainment industry.  Pressler, now the CEO of a New York-based marketing firm, applies her expertise in marketing to teach performers how to create a career search strategy with compelling materials, an authentic approach to networking, and a proactive process that showcases performers’ unique experience and strengths.
