Do you look at acting as a career or a calling? Do you know what your Why is? Have you found your Purpose? My guest today wants you to get clear on these things. He know’s why he gets up in the morning and why acting is his calling.

Actor/writer/director Elijah Cook hopes to keep taking his acting across the world. Hailing from New Jersey, Elijah chronicles his journey from the east coast to Los Angeles. In a short amount of time he has caught the attention of casting directors and directors and his career spans across all mediums. The sky is truly the limit for this talented young star.

As a young child, Elijah would mimic and imitate what he saw on T.V. and since then has honed his craft. He’s not afraid to roll up his sleeves and embark on a play, perform a standup routine, or bust out a spoken word on cue.

Our conversation took place almost two years ago, yet I believe it stands the test of time.

Join us as we discuss:

  • Starting off as a child actor

  • Films that have inspired us and changed the game

  • The difference between a career and a calling

  • Discover the number 1 way to find your “Why”

  • The mindset that Elijah adopted that keeps him striving

  • And so much more!
