Episode 10, Season 1 - Scott Tokar asks, "What do you do when you are asked to do something above and beyond your contract"?
An Interview with Kristina Fryk, a brand ambassador from the Pacific Northwest.
In Kristina's 3 Years as a Brand Ambassador, she has worked sporting events with the Seattle Seahawks, worked in-store sampling for liquor and foods and recently she even did a Mid-COVID in-car BA event for Blake Shelton!
We talk about The difference between pre-COVID and mid-COVID activation and a why we should all have a positive outlook for post-COVID BA gigs.
We explore freelance and agent gig work, W9’s or W2’s, and California’s difficult to navigate AB5 tax law.
Why do you need food handling certificates and liquor license certificates in various states?
Why it is tough being paid by the hour and saving for expenses and year-end taxes.
We talk rates and the difficulty in raising your pay from $20 to $50 an hour and the gigs NOT to take from the unfair agencies.
What is the agency's pay structure for talent, how they buy and sell or book for a straight percentage commission?
Why no agency should ever ask you to be exclusive (unless you become a regional manager on the payroll).
We look at COVID precautions in today's activations and liability releases. Setting boundaries for work scope and unexpected expenses and Finding work WITHOUT a complex or professional resume
Then we close with Why “action photos” and photos should be taken while on a job and why they are so important to the people that are booking talent.
Our closing "Face Palm" is a HOT ONE, because it is about a fire in the new Boston convention center.
