About One Broke Actress

If you've landed on the page you probably already know what One Broke Actress is. This is the home base for all the extras! All tiers include weekly bonus podcasts, quarterly goal setting, access to Guest Sessions exclusive to the OBA Patreon, and easy messaging access to Sam. Yes, even the $4 one.

But in case my mom sent you this web address in her Christmas newsletter, I'll lay it out for you. 

Who are you?

I'm Sam Valentine, a working actress in LA. I have also been a cook, nanny, dog walker, assistant, event coordinator, fiance, and rescue dog mom (if you're a "put a label on it" kinda person).

If you're broke why should people listen to you?

I am not actually broke. It's a play on the popular show "2 Broke Girls" with a kicky twist of honesty! So no, I pay my bills and actually don't have true debt. Which is something I'd like to share about...

Ok so if you're not broke why should we give you money?

I have spent 5+ years now creating content for working actors and trying to give them a platform to share and learn and not feel so alone. However, I want to get deeper. I want to share even more and more often. I want to share more with a smaller group who GET me. 

Why haven't I seen you in anything? Why should you give out advice if you're not famous?

Like I said, I am a working actor. I have done some things, I have seen some things, and I have a hell of a lot more to learn. I strongly believe almost all success stories are written after they happen...which is a huge bummer. We miss out on the grit and details it took to get there. That being said, most acting success is not linear. So you booked a pilot? Incredible! I want to know what you did when it didn't get picked up. You got a campaign with Pantene? Fantastic. I want to know how you convinced your reps you could also book a drama series regular. I want to share with everyone here the day-to-day of a working actor.
