Thank you guys very much! I have been on your website for about 3 weeks and I have already got one booking in Nashville and was signed to Alpha Model Group in Atlanta!!! I wouldn't have been able to get these without you, so I am very appreciative! God Bless! - Derek Yates Again, thank you so much! Just yesterday I had a job through you in Nashville, TN for ASAP Models, and because of it they want to sign me to their agency!!! Now, because of you guys, I have been signed to two non-exclusive agencies in a matter of a few weeks! That is twice the opportunity for more work, and then the work I will still receive from exploretalent.com. So in total, that is 3 times the chance of getting seen and one day fulfilling my dream of making it big in the entertainment business. Again, thank you so much! - Derek Yates, Chattanooga, TN
