3 Career Lessons from Alec Baldwin

Now that you know all about Alec Baldwin’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the lessons we can learn from him about career: 

 

1. Stay Open to Alternate Paths

It’s ironic that Baldwin, currently best known for his Donald Trump impersonation on SNL, didn’t set out to become an actor but a politician.

In fact, Baldwin was a political science major at George Washington University (where he ran for student body president and lost) and had plans to enter law school upon graduating from GW. However, that political/law path was derailed when some of Baldwin’s friends encouraged him to try acting. 

 

2. Go With Your Gut, Not Your Wallet

Judging by the podcast, if there’s one regret that Baldwin has with respect to his career, it’s “chasing the money” when his career started to take off.

That is, Baldwin regrets taking parts in low-quality movies simply to make a buck (well, a million bucks. 

 

3. Thank Your Parents

For Baldwin, a couple of the people integral to his success were his parents: his hardworking mother, who heroically raised six children; and his hardworking father, who was a schoolteacher and football coach (and ran a very tight ship in the Baldwin household).

In fact, both Baldwin’s mother and father were instrumental in his love for the movies. Baldwin fondly remembers bonding with his parents while watching old movies on late-night TV.
