Switching Careers, Handling Rejection, and Saying No with Actor Eric Hanson

Do you ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes in the life of an actor?

It turns out that you might have more in common than you think. 

In this episode, we are joined by my good friend and actor, Eric Hanson. 

Eric is a film, television & stage actor known most recently for his leading role as Adam in the feature film, “The Challenger Disaster”. His upcoming films will include sci-fi thriller, “Companion”, and dramatic thriller, “No Ordinary Love”, which was named in USA Today as one of this summer’s biggest movies.

We are talking about switching careers, supporting others, handling rejection, avoiding comparison and so much more in this episode.

I truly admire Eric’s outlook and the way he has handled so many scenarios in his career, so this is a great opportunity to learn from him. 



In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • Taking immediate action 
  • What it’s like to act, write, direct, and produce 
  • Supporting each other and helping each other to grow 
  • The power of synergy 
  • The value of having a group to motivate and support you
  • Learning to handle rejection whilst maintaining sensitivity 
  • Adapting to different settings 
  • How to say no 
  • Avoiding comparison 
  • Being the best version of yourself


I hope this helps you to see that we are all facing a lot of the same challenges in life and that we are better off facing them together rather than alone. 

I strongly encourage you to go over to Eric’s IMDb and pick one of his movies to watch. You won’t be disappointed!
