Inspirational Women In Hollywood: How Tracy Lamourie of Lamourie Media Is Helping To Shake Up The Entertainment Industry

Don’t let anything or anyone intimidate you — walk right in like you belong — because you do. On my second trip to Hollywood I walked right into any group of people that looked interesting at one high profile party- and was accepted- and made great connections- every time.

  1. Being present makes a difference. As much as I can do 98 percent of my connecting and networking in the virtual world — buying the plane ticket to show up and get some face time in makes a big difference.
  2. Everyone in Hollywood makes promises on awards nights and at events that fade into the ether like the champagne bubbles in your glass. Take a meeting the next day,make a deal, get it in writing.
  3. Know your boundaries and establish firm boundaries. Don’t be afraid to say no whether it’s to a client or to an opportunity if it doesn’t align with your values, strategies or comfort zones. You will be respected more when you set limits than when you let someone walk over you.
  4. Make sure you know who you are working with. Don’t be fooled by those putting their best face forward — if someone has a trail of enemies and burnt bridges behind them that is a major red flag. I unfortunately ignored the very clear warning signs in one instance and learned never to do that again!
