BUILD YOUR BRAND
Build you brand and choose a name people can remember. Example my brand name is Renaldo Creative.
Sign Up for www.twitter.com, www.facebook.com, www.modelmayhem.com,www.modelturf.com, and www.duskspot.com. Choose something liketwitter.com/yourbrand and not @cuteandprettync291.
Don't sign up for Modeling Schools/Agencies like Barbizon Modeling and John Casablanca Modeling School, because John Casablanca and Barbizon is both a legit scam? You can view complaints about John Casablanca School at:encrypted.google.com/#fp=470aa…. John Casablanca did create a legit model agency called Elite Modelswww.elitemodel.com. A real Modeling agency like Elite find you work and take a percent from what you make. Normally from 10% to 15% per job.

STEPS TO BECOMING A BETTER MODEL
If you want to become a great model. Practice posing in the mirror, book photo shoots, and look at Magazines and Model online portfolios. If you're a freelance model you don't need a Manager. You can manage yourself and be successful.
Study models work that your admire. Visit their site, blogs and study how they pose.
Respect independent urban Magazine. These Magazines can boost your career, and help you get more work. Use these Magazines to expand your career.
Post Vlogs on www.youtube.com www.vimeo.com and www.facebook.com Promote yourself, answer fans questions, give beauty tips, or show behind the scene videos.
Build your personal website; don't just use Twitter and Facebook. Invest in a Professional Web Designer or use services like www.tumblr.com , www.wordpress.com , www.wix.com (Choose HTML5 site) and www.blogger.com.
Join art communities like www.deviantart.com, www.carbonmade.com and www.behance.net. Modeling is still an art form.
Do Promotional work like Fashion Shows, Magazine, Car Show, etc.

BUILD YOUR PORTFOLIO
Book a shoot with a Professional Glamour or Fashion Photographer. Photo from the Mall, School Pictures, Cell Phone, Wal-Mart and other Retail store don't fit in your Portfolio book.

Discuss bringing an Escort to the Photo Shoot with your Photographer or Avoid bringing escort to your Photo Shoot. When models bring a escort I normally put the escort to work. Only work with photographer you trust. Ask for reference or testimonies. Escorts can get in the way and destroy the photo shoot. Also don't assume that a female Photographer is safer to work with than a male Photographer. Ask for reference or testimonies from female photographer. Male photographer got a bad rep from GWC Guy with Cameras. Normally fake photographer that don't care about Photography. Call the photographer before the shoot or meet in person. Keep in touch with the photographer and a family member. Until you get home safe.
INFO FOR MODELS FROM MONIE LOVE:
Lookout for scheme and scams.
