Inspiring Conversations with Terrece Lynn of The Wayne Agency

Today we’d like to introduce you to Terrece Lynn.

Hi Terrece, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
The thought process I used in starting my own business was to get involved within the entertainment business, which I had been working in since the age of 12, but to offer a more personalized hands on approach when working with talent and their families. I also wanted to bring more diversity and inclusion to the entertainment industry which unfortunately has not always kept up with the times.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
For the most part, it has been a smooth ride, but there are always some challenges when you are entering into a business like entertainment in a place like LA where there are no shortages of other agents and managers. That was the main factor I used when developing my business model for the agency. This way, each talent that was brought on board had a customized plan that was formulated and tailored to their individual t needs as well as their expectations and goals.

We’ve been impressed with The Wayne Agency, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My business is a Full-Service Talent Agency for all age groups between 0-99. My journey to agency ownership and the love I have for the entertainment industry started for me at the age of 12 and continued on-and-off well into my late 20’s. By that point, I was married and had three children.

I think what I am best known for is offering an open door policy and an open line of communication to each one of the talent I represent. By conducting representation in this way, our talent knows they are respected and valued in and with their craft and know they have that built-in support system ensuring they can obtain their career goals. They also have an agent/agency that takes the time to get to know them on a personal as well as a professional level ensuring we give casting professionals exactly what they are looking for.

I am most proud of every single talent I have the honor of working with and that I consider being part of the TWA Family! I want your readers to know that there is such thing as having a talent agency and agent that supports their craft and values them as an individual as well as an actor/performer.

Is there any advice you’d like to share with our readers who might just be starting out?
The best advice that I can give new talent is to work hard, don’t be afraid to put yourself out there, look for professional relationships with people that elevate you and that are aligned with what your individual goals are with the business. Never feel pressured to do something you are not comfortable doing, and under no circumstances should you ever turn your back on your morals. If you can not stand proudly by your work and are ashamed to share with others, chances are it is not worth doing.
