The second misconception I think is part is the fact that a lot of people think that talent is more important than skills. Talent does have a lo to do with it if your born with it, for example, if your already comfortable on stage or comfortable with yourself, comfortable in front of the camera or you can put yourself in to people’s situations. It will chose easily or your very perceptive, you want somebody and you understand where they are coming from they are little corks. So, those are the types of talents that after acquire but when we talk about skills that is when it is really-really important so skills is actually a lot more important. What you see is 99 % skill and I say 1% talent.
